    With a $20 price point, Ultimate Board Game Collection is a steal and will provide countless hours of enjoyment.
  2. For roughly fifteen dollars, you get 20 board games on a single blue-backed disc. That's a great value, assuming you're into board games and have a couple friends nearby.
  3. While a few of these games may have some value when played with a group, fans of board games may as well stick to actually playing board games.
  4. It manages to distract you from how pointless it actually is for, ooh, at least half an hour. [July 2008, p.78]
  5. 30
    Instead of a compilation of good times, Ultimate Board Game Collection is a horrifying pile of examples of why some developers should spend their time focusing on gameplay instead of showing off their environments.
  6. An uninspiring collection that's poorly presented and underwhelming to play. You have been warned. [June 2008, p.66]
