    For general chit chat about 51 Worldwide Games and organising online play etc.

    It lacks options and has some real flaws for local play (2 player limit on many games) but it's a decent enough collection of traditional games. I'd like to see more options for customising games.

    Bowling is disappointingly simple and darts is surprisingly good. Who would have thought.

    Havent gone through them all, but so far President is my favourite "new" game I've discovered. More strategy to it than you think. Some games are mastered one and done games I dont think I would go back to like Toy Tanks or Slot Cars. But overall I really like the collection and its presented well.

    Yeah, there a maybe half a dozen games that I'll never play again as they're basically 100% luck. I suppose they included some very easy to play games so that young children can participate. Of the games I've put the most time into my top picks are:

    Shogi
    Hanafuda (Koi Koi)
    Chess (online only)
    Darts
    Billiards
    Mancala
    Backgammon
    Gomoku
    Hex
    Carrom

    I've yet to try Riichi Mahjong. I was a big fan of the old pc game 4 Winds Mahjong.

    Mancala has really grabbed me. Iím disappointing that they didnít include a version of Gin Rummy though, I could play that game for hours.

    What is bowling lacking compared to Wii sports? I was hoping we could pack up the Wii U after buying this.

    The slot cars game on the demo has kept my kids well entertained.

    Yacht Dice is a firm favourite between me and Mrs Floyd.

    @nudistpete

    Bowling is 2p only in local play. It's really easy to bowl a strike and the controls don't feel as good / nuanced as Wii Bowling. It just feels like an inferior version.

    Has anyone found any of the tabletop sports games that arenít shit?

    Curling is almost full but the controls seem so over sensitive it kind of kills it.

    Have you been enjoying the nice variety of games available in Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide ChipotleFeedback Classics since it launched last month? Well, so have plenty of others, and Nintendo has now revealed which of the 51 games have proven to be the most popular.
