    There’s something that draws you to a good game, be it board, card or pencil and paper. 51 Worldwide Games presents high quality, faithful renditions of both classics and lesser known games, providing challenge and enjoyment in equal measure.

    51 Worldwide Games is a brilliant collection of some of the best (and in some cases oldest) games out there. From cards to dominoes and boards to balls, you’ll find a varied mix both familiar and fresh all wrapped in a wonderfully clean and polished package. Much like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, 51 Worldwide Games is another one of those releases that can be enjoyed by anyone be they a gamer or not. It may not have the earth-shaking excitement of a new Mario or Metroid backing it, but it certainly delivers on the fun. Do not pass on this delightful gem.

    Having so many great, timeless classics all together and so easy to pick up and put down at a moment's notice is spectacular. [Issue #48 – September/October 2020, p. 70]

    Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is a solid compilation of some fantastic games. No, not all of them are winners, but the vast majority are engaging simple versions of the best tabletop games around. Though the single-player experience might be slightly lacking, Clubhouse Games is undoubtedly one of the best local multiplayer experiences on the Switch.

    This can stand tall knowing that it compiles a number of brilliantly addictive games that can be fun to play alone or with friends. Almost all can be played in a quick pick-up and play fashion, which can be handy for those looking to play in short bursts, whether on a short commute, or in a party scenario. Online matchmaking should perhaps be refined so that people match players first, and select games after, but this aside, 51 Worldwide Games is a fantastic budget title that all Nintendo Switch owners should buy.

    Clubhouse Games looks good but lacks any real substance beyond its large catalog of games, many of which offer little more than the most basic of strategies. It's as if Nintendo decided to collect free games put out for Windows 98 and then give them an HD render, offering some idle amusement. Once Clubhouse Games gets discounted (and I'm sure that it won't be long), it might be worth the price tag, but I wouldn't invest in a full-price version right out of the gate.

    Very solid minigame collection for $40. A lot of fun so far and very enjoyable. If you're in the mood for some classic games, check this one out.

I assumed that since most of the games are classic board game that there wouldn't be much value here, but I was wrong. Clubhouse feels like if 1-2 Switch! was actually made well. Most games are really unique and fun. There is truly something for everyone here - super casual, luck-based games to highly strategic ones. For $40, you really can't go wrong with this.

    Reccomendation: ALL casual and party gamers should pick this up.

Most of the games are way too short on content and some control pretty poorly. Also several of the 51 games are clones. There are 3 solitaires, 2 tanks, and 3 chesses. Why not just combine them and have more slots available. Also why are all the sports toys like toy baseball? They are the worst ones in the game! The only one that would make sense to be a toy is fishing, but that one isn't toy and it is also one of the worst! Although there is a lack of content, what there is is good. Unfortunately the multiplayer aspects are even more limited, and the online barely works (as usual). It feels like the sequel to wii party I always wanted, but it's only minigames. Why aren't there any extra modes? If it weren't for the $40 price tag, it wouldn't be worth it! Despite my complaining, I really enjoyed it, and even though multiplayer is lacking in content, you should still play with friends! (and yes, I know Wii Party already has a sequel) Expand

Playing by myself was awesome and I got to try all kinds of games without buying the boards which was cool. Brought some family in and was having a good time playing 2 player with Go, checkers etc. Was kind of surprised at how few games were multiplayer but for the card games it made sense.

    Then I tried 3 players and was hugely disappointed. 3 games. Out of 51 games, 3 are for 3 players or more. Doesn't include bowling, yahtzee, golf, chinese checkers, literally half the games that could have more than 2 players just... don't. For no reason. Huge disappointment for someone with a larger family.

Wanted a fun game to play on the TV but it sucks now this game is useless for the family. Don't buy Nintendo doesn't do refunds because they are a trash company. Waste of $40. Not everyone wants to use your dumb lamecons. Now I'm stuck with a. Trash game I will never use and sadly the controls of the joy con suck imagine Wii sports but 100 times worse that is how bad this game is. Nintendo needs to get their crap TOGETHER. Expand
