Clubhouse Games review

Forty plus games in your pocket, and no missing pieces

For

  • Over forty games to pick
  • Excellent multiplayer
  • Clear instructions and tips

Against

  • Some games move slowly
  • Mission mode gets frustrating
  • Chess board is a little crowded

No one was seen giddily ripping open the box and reveling in the glory of Clubhouse Games when it arrived%26hellip; not that we'd do that normally. But compilations like Clubhouse can too easily be dismissed outright as budget games, and that's because card and board games have never really translated all that well to game systems. But the latest in the "Touch Generation" series isn't just a collection of lame card games that you never wanted to play anyway - there are 42 games to explore, and they all work in their own ways.

The games are split into eight categories - basic card games, intermediate card games, advanced card games, basic board games, advanced board games, variety games, action games, and single-player games. That's a lot of games, so without listing them all, here's a smattering of what you can expect: Old Maid, Blackjack, Texas Hold'Em, Rummy, Checkers, Backgammon, Chess, Darts, Bowling, and Solitaire. Each game has several options to modify for your customizing enjoyment.
