Clubhouse Games (DS)

 

Board games, card decks, and sets of dice take up a ton of physical space and are a real pain in the behind to drag down out of the closet, but they sure are loads of fun to play when your buddies are over. Drink some beverages, break out the pretzels,...

Let's just cut to the chase, shall we? Clubhouse Games is a must-buy for Nintendo DS owners who enjoy playing card games and board games by themselves or with friends....

Large number of titles with great variety ; Easy to pick up and play ; Forces players to learn new games ; Well-written, in-game instructions ; Good controls for 41 of the games ; Good bang for the buck ; Great overall presentation

Billiards could have used more TLC ; What, no Euchre

Witch Chess

Voice acting is nice ; Using a reasonable amount of strategy is rewarded

Still "cut-out" characters ; Trite story

Hmm i actually really like this series. It's got a better story, presentation, and use of sound than Final Fantasy Tactics A2. That review really nails it though, the game isn't really inventive or difficult whatsoever but does everything else...

Casual gamers (and hard-core dorks just looking for a respite), unite! As hopelessly nostalgic and retro (and cheap) as a virtual collection of board, card and ball games might sound on the surface, Clubhouse Games is a great little package for DS...

Pokemon Ranger

 

This game just makes more sense than other Pokemon games.

The game is really, really fun ; Quite a bit of legitimate challenge ; Controls are clean and crisp

When you get a lot of helper Pokemon, it gets a bit tricky to select the one you want

fairly shallow review, but this game does seem to have promise, especially if there's some conjuction between it and Pearl/Diamond.

The Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything.

42 classic games ; Online and single-card local multiplayer with chat ; Very accessible

PictoChat is only available for use among friends ; Not all games are available from the start

I noticed that about 1/3 of the games in the Japanese version are different, so I'm thinking I might pick that up too, but I'm waiting to see if they do an online version like they did with Yakuman DS.

About time, is really all I can say. This is the multiplayer game that I have been waiting for on the Nintendo DS. It offers dozens of simple, fun games that not only can be played with single card wireless, but over WiFi. From chess to blackjack to...

Quite often, parlor/board/card game compilation software ends up being budget priced, with poor presentation and really no compelling reason for purchase. Nintendo, however, is seeking to change all that with its new DS title, Clubhouse Games. The...

Not all DS owners will dig this type of game, but with the understanding of what you're getting in the package, Clubhouse Games is a great time-killer and more importantly, lots of fun. Only Nintendo could make a classic game compilation that's this...

Nintendo's compilation of classic games is a treasure trove of favorites, with something for everyone.

More games than you could possibly exhaust; wireless multiplayer for four or more players with one cart, and online multiplayer through Nintendo Wi-fi Connect

Some of the mission challenges are incredibly difficult, requiring you to pull off extraordinary feats; hard to make out some of the tiles in Mahjong

Clubhouse Games Review

 

It doesn't get anymore accesibly fun than a collection of board games.

Sure, Clubhouse Games could have used more game additions and some of the Nintendo touch to make it feel homelier to DS owners. Those flaws aside, the game is filled with simplistic joys up to your eyebrows, and will keep you playing well after you've...
