Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics released today

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - ...But you wouldn't know it if you relied on official social media for your information. Fortunately, you have KoopaTV.

Today, a game that immediately piqued my interest back in the March 2020 Nintendo Direct Mini, Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics, released on the Nintendo Switch. It's a sequel to a version on the Nintendo DS with different classics on it that I never had, so I'm looking at Clubhouse Games with independent interest.

But Nintendo's social media has gone radio silent. Nothing on Twitter or Facebook. Nothing even on YouTube, which means that Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics lacks a launch trailer. Rest assured, the game is out. You can buy it right now on the Nintendo eShop for $40. It also has a press release and an in-console Switch News article. 

Apparently, no one is allowed to have fun while there are dangerous protests going on. Human life is more important than 51 clubhouse games that are reproduced beautifully on the Switch, with surprisingly satisfying sound effects and production values.

Nintendo should've posted this image on social media to acknowledge Black Lives Matter, as opposed to what they actually did.
It's a perfect topical message with perfect delivery, and it has a dual purpose of promoting a game that needs promoting!

However, if you do believe that you're allowed to have some fun in your life (whether that's an innate moral value or you're just exercising your “privilege”), check out the free demo, Clubhouse Games Guest Pass. Not only can you use that to play local multiplayer with someone who owns the full version of the game, but it also has four games you can play by yourself for free: Four-in-a-Row, Dominoes, President, and Slot Cars. Don't know how to play? The Guest Pass also includes the full set of instructions for all 51 games, along with the amusing fully voice-acted introductions between the NPCs that give the game immense flavour. That's a whole bunch of value all on its own, even if you don't intend to buy the game, and it's free.

You're turning a blind eye to the systemic anti-turtle behaviours in your society.
KoopaTV has covered these repeatedly on World Turtle Day, most recently a few weeks ago.

Ludwig figures that the game will be better with friends you know will get it (as opposed to a single player experience versus computer players), so he's going to poll around the KoopaTV staff and others to see if they'd be interested in buying the game. He does want to get the game physically, so either way he'll wait until game stores are open for everyone (without relying on curbside pickup or something). He does need to go refill his stash of eShop cards for future KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program rounds, after all. Waiting a bit before buying Clubhouse Games will also indicate if the game's appeal is a flash in the pan, or if it has staying power.
