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
"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*
spit (speed or war)
I doubt it (Cheat!)
Memory (yes, memory!Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Picked this up cheap (thankfully) when looking for an electronic version of Shogi, which it has. You have to trudge through a lot of other games to unlock it though. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Erik R. Impson
