Apple's failed game console Pippin is really a heavy-crippled PCI Power Mac with a 603 cpu. Anyone here have experiences with Pippin game discs running on Sheepshaver?

I saw a Pippin only one time during an Apple Expo in Paris during the 90's.
It was a nice object but only few were sold, so games are not legion.
If I remember well, the operating system of the Pippin was close to Mac OS 7, but I don't think it was Mac OS 7 itself, so I don't thing it would be possible to run a Pippin game on SheepShaver.
But, if someone finds a pippin game, it would be funny to test it with SheepShaver.

A pippin can be hacked to run System 7.5.2 and 7.5.5.
and most Pippin games (released by bandai) are just generic Mac games with a Pippin system folder.

according to wikipedia, around 80 titles were released for the Pippin in the Japanese market... some of them might be good....
