Clubhouse games rock!

Many of the games are available at the start, others you have to "unlock" for later.

Three modes of gameplay are available:

"Free play": Play any game you have unlocked/play available games.

"Stamp mode": Clear all the games in order (yes, each game, but you get stamps when you lose, so you're not stuck on darts or whatever forever!) one stamp for third place or lower, two for second, three for first; three stamps and you can move on to the next game..a great way to familierize yourself with all the games, plus it's the only way to unlock certain games

and finally,

"Mission mode": Clear specific challenges to move on: Make X number of strikes in bowling, for example.

Some games are great, others stink, ditto to the music, but that's not we are here..

There are only a few games available at the start as I previously mentioned:

*Basic Card Games*

old maid

spit (speed or war)

I doubt it (Cheat!)

Sevens

Memory (yes, memory!

Clubhouse Games is the latest entry in the Nintendo Touch Generations label. These games exist outside the norm of gaming. They're usually non-games, or outside-the-box titles, that are meant to appeal to a wider audience than most games target. Nintendogs for pet lovers, Brain Age for those interested in puzzles, and so on and so forth.

Clubhouse Games might very well be the strongest entry into the genre yet. A collection of 42 awesome card, board, and variety games, Clubhouse Games is perfect for single players, a group of friends, or online matchups.

The game list is impressive, spanning from the usual staples such as Poker and Blackjack and Solitaire to the rarer things like Go, Hanafuda, Field Tactics (stratego) and others. The list is already covered in reviews, so I won't reiterate.

The game shines with a simple, plain display that allows you to easily manipulate the controls for all of the card and board games. The games themselves come with detailed rules, and tips should you desire them. Given that some of these games can be pretty obscure, it's a nice addition. And refreshing your memory never hurts.

The only problem is the games that are more action-oriented. Billiards and bowling are almost impossible to control with dependable accuracy, unless your hands have control of surgeon-level quality (I beat Trauma Center, I know what I'm talking about. =D). It's frustrating, given that tighter control would have made them standouts. As it is, I'll play it when I'm bored, or a friend wants to play that one with me.

As for the multiplayer options, that's half the reason to get this game. Not only are most (if not all) of the games single-cart multiplayer, but every game can be played online, as well.

They just keep coming. Just about all of Nintendo's original first party games for their dual screened handheld are simplistic yet incredibly addictive, and Clubhouse Games is no different. Featuring a horde of instantly accessible games of all types, Clubhouse Games is a blast that gamers of any and every age can get into. There's tons of card games here, ranging from Blackjack to Texas Hold 'Em; to go along with Chess, Checkers, Solitare, Pool, Darts, Bowling, and many more; all of which played using the stylus and touch screen to full effect. The visuals aren't anything revolutionary, but they get the job done, and the controls using the stylus are nicely done as well. There's more mini-games and extras to unlock as well through the Mission mode as you accomplish various goals throughout the various games, which adds even more to the incredibly high replay value. And speaking of replay value, Clubhouse Games features Wi-Fi capability, and to get the most out of the game you'll have to use it, and you'll be getting addicted to it even more. All in all, Clubhouse Games is yet another addition to an increasingly superb DS library, and for DS owners looking for some quick yet lasting gameplay, Clubhouse Games is a must own.

Verified Purchase
I bought this title precisely so I could play Bridge. Bridge is one of the most complex card games of all time, so I wasn't expecting miracles of AI brilliance, but I at least expected that (a) the minimum necessary information would be given to you so you could play the game, (b) the AI could at least give you some challenge, and (c) the game would implement the real rules of Bridge. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Necessary information (bidding history) is not available anywhere. The bids are displayed on the UI as they are made, but they flash very quickly and are buried in a confusing flash of irrelevant information, and if you miss them, they're gone. As atrocious as that experience is, the game only allows you to make a single bid, so it doesn't even implement Bridge rules correctly! I'm thinking of returning the game, or seeing if there is such a thing as a patch for DS games.

Given that I was trapped on a long flight, I tried out a few of the other games.

Hearts was at least playable, but lacked the options that I would have preferred to be able to set (e.g. I couldn't configure passing schemes, rewards for hitting 100, or Jack of Diamonds optional rules).

Solitaire was acceptable.

Backgammon is my favorite game on this compilation so far, but even this lacks advanced features (doubling cube), and the UI is also quite annoying (you have to be very precise about where you place your pieces or it will reject your input).

Chess worked and was, as expected, easily beatable. At least the game knew to allow castling. I didn't have a chance to try en passent.

Bottom line: jack of all trades, master of none. Some of the games are fun, some are unplayable.
