Clubhouse Games Brings 51 Classic Tabletop Games to the Switch This June

Clubhouse Games Brings 51 Classic Tabletop Games to the Switch This June

Play on one Switch, several Switches, or the internet.

Board games are great, but they can take up a lot of space. Plus, portability is a concern. That's where Clubhouse Games comes in.

A new entry in Nintendo's Clubhouse Games series, called Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics, was announced during today's Nintendo Direct Mini. It will arrive for the Nintendo Switch on June 5, and features a veritable truckload of classic games to play by yourself or with friends. From card games like poker and solitaire, to board games like chess and Ludo, to subtle copies of popular games like "Last Card" and "Renegade," there's a lot to play here.

In the video, you can see players using the same Switch to play either side of a Go board or air hockey table. Some of the games even have multiplayer via wireless local play; the small text on the Direct says "free supplementary software will be available that allows players to connect in local multiplayer with someone who owns the full version of the game." That alone makes this a much more alluring purchase option, even if I wasn't already down when the announcer said "dominoes."

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics can also be played online, though you'll need a Nintendo Switch Online membership. You can pick three games, match up with other players, and koi-koi away.
