    This looks like a sequel to 42 classic games.

    Classic games plus eight. Not to be confused with the Jon and Kate Plus Eight DS title coming out next week.

    It looks more like shovelware to me. :|

    A true sequel to Clubhouse Games'd be the bomb.

    This game has nothing to do with 42 Classic Games, aka Clubhouse Games. Which is a shame, because Clubhouse Games was actually great. Still getting this to see how it stacks up.

    I can't think of a game on the DS from Destineer that wasn't shovelware. There were quite a few that I played because they were fun PC ports of shareware games line Diner Dash, but even I knew it had the stink of cash in on it.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Well, I guess you're right. It's always like that.

    And the board games still pwn the video games.

    Answer: It's terrible. Substantially worse than Clubhouse Games in every possible way. There are no game settings for the individual games. The AI for the card games are utterly shit, they never raise ever, fold if you raise more than 20 chips every time even though everyone starts with 1500. There are no alternate game modes (ie stamp mode). There are no unlockables. You start the game and get presented with a menu with all of the games on there and that's it. There is no multiplayer, wifi or not even local wireless.

    So in short, it's zero effort pure shovelware.

    So, in other words, it should have been called 50 Crappy Games.
