Need to decide what version of Linux to install 32 or 64 bit. Wondering if the 64 bit Fedora 18 will run WINE for 32 bit Window games.

So have you tried it or just thinking to make a try. I think it depends upon version of Wine application i.e. 32-bit or 64-bit, not on OS.
You should once give it a try on Fedora 18 (64-bit) and let's know if you've face any pb.

Good luck!

I would like to know if WINE works for 32 bit Window games on a 64 bit Linux before installation.

Is there a 64 bit versions of WINE that run 32 bit games ?

Once check here. As per this, the 32-bit version of Wine can run on 64-bit platforms, this is seen as a non-issue.

So it's all about your OS and Wine, not between Wine and Windows games. I think it should work fine, so just give it a try.
