42 All-Time Classics for DS

Thursday 27 July 2006
Nintendo is launching 42 All-Time Classics for DS on 29 September, the 'classics' being various card, board and parlour games such as poker, chess and draughts. And as the title suggests, there're 42 of them.

Each of the games makes use of the handheld's unique touch-screen function making games like backgammon, darts and snooker easier to play than ever before.

Multiplayer is available for most of the games, with some enabling eight players to compete at once using DS's WiFi connectivity.

To make the most of the multiplayer contest, All-Time Classics will have a built-in Picto Chat function so you can send and receive messages from your rivals. This means you can trash talk during chess or bluff during Texas Hold 'Em.
