At first glance, Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics on Nintendo Switch looks like the sort of budget software you’d find in the discount bin of some random superstore. But it only takes a few minutes to see just how much work, love, and whimsy went into this package, one of the best values in gaming this year.

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is a collection of classic board games, mechanical games recreated digitally, and card games, along with a few traditional video game-inspired minigames that can be played with a variety of controller styles using the many configurations of the Nintendo Switch.

Why would anyone want to pick up a digital collection of board games instead of the real thing? Clubhouse Games has many, many answers to that question.

The most obvious is the price: At $39.99, you’re already paying less than a dollar per game, and you don’t have to worry about losing pieces or storing the boxes.

Some games can be played with standard controller buttons, others use the system’s touchscreen, and still others require everyone to have their own system. Even that isn’t as big of a hassle as it sounds, however, since anyone can download the Clubhouse Games guest pass from the Switch eShop and play all the supported local multiplayer games with up to three other people. (The only requirement is that at least one of the four players owns the full version of the game.) It’s the simplest, most welcoming way to walk around with a huge collection of classic games in your pocket.

Teaching by showing

So much of the collection’s strong design is focused on teaching new games to players. Each game gets a brief introduction where little toy people play the game for a few moments, bantering back and forth about what they’re doing. After that, you’re presented with a simple menu for each game with directions on how to play, tutorials explaining the more complicated aspects of the deeper games, and adjustable AI to play against.

When we award the Polygon Recommends badge, it’s because we believe the recipient is uniquely thought-provoking, entertaining, inventive, or fun — and worth fitting into your schedule. If you want curated lists of our favorite media, check out What to Play and What to Watch .

The instructions are laid out simply, and all the rules are written in clear language. The game’s narration warns me that Shogi would be tricky to learn, for instance, but the on-screen help shows me where each piece can go and which moves put my pieces in danger. The computer’s unending patience as I flail around trying to figure out basic strategy is also a life-saver. Playing is the best way to learn; I was able to turn off the assistance in a few rounds and just go for it. The real test came when I had to try to explain the game to a friend, and I feel like I did pretty well.

That journey is a refreshing change from the status quo: Learning a new physical game with buddies can be a challenge. If someone unwittingly makes an illegal move and you have to try to go back and figure out why, that can really slow the fun down. Clubhouse does that work for you.

The game won’t let you make illegal moves, and you can run through a large number of rounds of each game quickly, since the AI runs the board for you. No one has to worry about resetting anything, making sure the right pieces are flipped, or setting everything up correctly for the first time. The entire experience has been boiled down to the pure essence of playing, adding to the convenience.

I get that some people may miss the tactile advantage of being able to feel each piece themselves with a physical board, and there’s something to be said for that, but removing so many of the annoying parts of the physical experience when you just want to play a quick game with a friend makes up for it.

It also helps that the games themselves all look, feel, and sound so good when you’re playing them. There isn’t anything complicated or flashy, but it’s still satisfying to watch and listen to the well-modeled dice clatter against each other before being dumped on the virtual felt in Yacht Dice. Or the tinkling sound of the plastic discs falling into their resting place in Four-in-a-Row — this collection’s take on Connect Four .

That conceit of treating everything like a tabletop game and not an electronic simulation continues through most of the experiences. Toy Baseball is a simulated mechanical version of America’s pastime that seems so plausible, I had to check to see if it was based on a real product. To my delight, I get to report that yes, friends, this is an actual, physical game .

Toy Boxing pits two virtual tin fighters against each other, and your only options are to punch or block. It’s a matter of timing and reading the other player to know when to make your move. So many of these smaller, basic experiences start as a fun gimmick when I begin playing them with one of my kids, only to loop into real fun, before a few rounds of boredom, and then come back to joy once the competitive spirit kicks in again. It’s ridiculously easy to blow hours playing games that seem like they should lose their shine after only a few rounds.

Things also get kinda weird

There is some fun stuff going on in Clubhouse Games that was a little unexpected, or that worked much better than I anticipated.

The piano app is a basic piano, played on the touchscreen, and it’s fine. But you can also flip the Switch upside down to turn it into an electronic organ, because why not? Then you can detach the Joy-Con controllers to use as percussion instruments to play along with the piano.

You can also connect up to four systems in “mosaic mode,” lining them up to make one long keyboard, or make a two-by-two grid to play the instrument as a more complex electronic organ. These options didn’t need to be in here for the game to be a success — the rest of the package will likely take care of that — but if you’re going to add something into the game, why not go a bit overboard?

That mosaic mode is used to great effect in other games as well. The strangely compelling version of slot car racing gives you a selection of tracks., All you have to do is make sure your speed is within a certain range so your car doesn’t fly off the track during tight turns. That’s the entire interaction: You’re either adding speed or you’re not. But the developers nailed the “feel” and fun of slot cars so well that it feels much closer to having a real set than I expected. Arranging and rearranging four Switch systems together allows you to increase the size of the track and adjust its design.

It’s such a ridiculously decadent buffet of options for what almost seems like it should be a one-off joke of a game — an electronic version of slot cars. So many of these games are offered in such a way that the enjoyment is stretched out and enhanced to an unexpected degree, and my advice is to try everything … even if they’re games that bored you in the past. Everything is prepared with such care that it’s hard to find a true stinker in the collection. Even the super basic fishing minigame allows you to craft your own environment by lining up systems in different configurations.

Some missing pieces

While there are no true disasters in Clubhouse Games , there are some weak spots. The tracking for the motion controls on Darts and Target Shooting is only so-so. Fans of card games may be frustrated by the lack of poker variations, and there is no version of Go included, for some baffling reason.

The lobby system for online play works by having you select up to three games you’d like to play online, and then trying to find other folks to play those games with you. It’s a slightly clumsy way to find opponents, but these problems melt away if you’re playing online with people you already know and can speak to through Discord or Zoom. The online play is also still hobbled by its reliance on the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app.

The issues in Clubhouse Games are small compared to what the package does right, though, especially for the price. You’re paying to have the rules explained and enforced by an all-seeing eye, and to enjoy the sights and sounds of 51 games (and a piano!) without ever needing to set up or tear down a board. This is board gaming as convenience, without any of the worries associated with physical products.

This simple package, with an unassuming title and cover, is already one of my favorite games of the year. Nintendo may have released the perfect game at the perfect time with Animal Crossing: New Horizons , and it looks like the company may be able to repeat the same trick when Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is released on June 5.

Now add Crokinole , you cowards.

Image of Diego Perez

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is making its way to Nintendo Switch soon, and it’s bringing dozens of classic games to Nintendo’s handheld system that can be played in various ways. Because there’s a long list of games included, Clubhouse Games has things to play by yourself, things to play online, and things to play with friends locally. Clubhouse Games even uses the Nintendo Switch system in handheld mode in interesting ways. The Switch screen can become an air hockey table or a go board, allowing multiple people to play the same game while the Switch is not connected to a TV.

The game was announced in a Nintendo Direct Mini presentation only a few months ago, so footage of every game in the collection isn’t available yet. This is a list of all 51 games included in Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics:

Medals are earned for completing the game in a certain manner. Note that next to each game once you play it is a symbol. The symbols mean the following things:

  • Green Checkmark - You've played this game to completion at least once and have earned no Medals.
  • Bronze Medal - You've earned a Medal for this game and have three Medals to go.
  • Silver Medal - You have two Medals to go.
  • Gold Medal - You have one Medal to go.
  • Gold Trophy - You've mastered the game and earned all of its medals.

Some games only have one, two, or three Medals. The most typical way to earn Medals for games is to beat the game on all difficulty levels, but I'll address each individual one in its section.

Trivia is earned each time you play a complete game. Each game has a different amount of Trivia. As a whole, Trivia is easy enough to earn, except for Solitaire games. For Solitaire games you must win a game to earn a Trivia.

In Third Person

A personal look at video games, board games and other nerdy pursuits. www.inthirdperson.com., discovering the joy of yahtzee through clubhouse games: 51 worldwide classics.

51 worldwide games yacht

“ The millionaire, the mansion, the yacht! ”

Quoting the late Notorious B.I.G. as I shook my dice, I was two fives short of scoring a five-of-a-kind. Doing so would net me a whopping 50 points; easily the single largest point opportunity in the game. Though I’ve yelled the Biggie quote dozens of times with no luck, it finally paid off on this final throw. Five-in-a-row. 50 points. Jett wins.

Despite the immediate salt, my wife Steff calls for another rematch. We were already hours deep into this extended Yacht Dice session and would end up playing many more. I may have never discovered how fun Yacht Dice (better known as  Yahtzee outside of the game) is had it not been for a series of events that led to me picking up  Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics .

51 worldwide games yacht

Yahtzee  is a tabletop dice game where players take turns rolling five dice. Accompanied with a score sheet, your goal is to score the most points by creating Poker -like hands with your dice, such as 4-of-a-kind, straights, and the coveted 5-of-a-kind Yahtzee. You’ll roll the dice three times per round, keeping the values you want while re-rolling the rest in hopes of better results. After three rolls, you’ll cash in your dice for one of the 12 point categories. After 12 rounds, the player with the most points wins.

Even though a sizable part of the game comes down to the luck of your dice, you have a decent amount of control over the outcome. During your turn, choosing which dice to keep versus which to re-roll gives you a bit of time to aim for a desired result. Certain hands can score for multiple categories, allowing you to choose which category you want to score in. Even in situations where your hand doesn’t fit in any of the remaining categories, choosing which one to score as a zero can be the difference between winning and losing. As random as dice can be, I feel like I have enough control over the action to stay engaged throughout.

For most of my life, I’ve only known of Yahtzee as a boring game. Not through personal experience, but from the “word on the street”. I’ve always heard of it being lame, so I didn’t bother. Many years ago, I downloaded a Yahtzee app on my phone, but failed to understand the rules.

51 worldwide games yacht

Since then, a few major events have occurred that have warmed me up to the idea of trying Yahtzee again. First and foremost, I discovered a wonderful dice game called King of Tokyo . Though it involves players assuming the roles of giant monsters as they battle for control over the city, it’s core roll-and-hold gameplay mechanic is directly lifted from Yahtzee . From one moment to the next, do you use your dice to attack others, heal yourself, or gather energy to unlock special powers? The decisions you make in Yahtzee may not sound as dramatic, but the core idea of choosing what to do with your dice each turn is the same.

Then came Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics . Though I was a fan of original, I wasn’t sure if I’d care for another go round in modern times. Much of what made the original compilation unique was that you couldn’t easily get those types of games in a digital and portable format. Since then, smartphones became a thing, and you can probably find free alternatives to most of the games within 51 Worldwide Classics.

51 worldwide games yacht

What ultimately pushed me over the edge was watching Twitch streamer FireDragon play Yacht Dice on his stream. Having walked into the room while Steff was watching him play, the rules of Yahtzee finally made sense to me. With Steff having an interest in playing as well, I picked up the game later that afternoon.

We’ve since tried a number of other games within this compilation. Even so, Yacht Dice continues to be our go-to. I’m mad at myself for not giving this game an honest try sooner, but I’m glad to have it in my life now. Until I come up with more yacht-based lingo, I’ll continue to quote the words of the Notorious B.I.G. as I aim for my next 50.

After Orcas Sink Another Yacht, Researcher Says They're Probably Just Playing

F ollowing news of the latest boat sunk by orcas in the waters near the Strait of Gibraltar, a killer whale researcher is warning that the incidents may be misunderstood.

News outlets ( including HuffPost ) have used the word “attack” to describe a spate of events in which orcas have damaged vessels in the waters around Morocco, Portugal and Spain. But Monika Wieland Shields, co-founder and director of the nonprofit Orca Behavior Institute, argued the term is misleading in an MSNBC opinion piece published Thursday.

“When I watch the videos of these so-called attacks, I see something completely different,” Shields wrote.

Rather than an act of aggression, “it looks like another behavior we often see killer whales engage in: play.”

On Tuesday, a group of orcas slammed into the hull and damaged the rudder of a 50-foot sailing yacht off the coast of Morocco. The people aboard were rescued and the vessel was left to sink. It was the fifth time orcas have sunk a boat in the region in recent years, The New York Times reported . There have been dozens of other incidents of damage, though no human deaths.

Shields said “from the whale’s perspective,” it makes sense that they often go after rudders.

“Rudders move and, when humans try to regain steering control, show resistance,” she wrote. “It’s probably more like a game of tug-of-war than a maliciously motivated attack.”

Orcas are highly intelligent and social animals, which means they have “a unique capacity for amusement and playfulness,” she wrote. It also means that new behaviors and fads spread easily among social groups. For example, during a brief in a period in the late 1980s, many orcas near Washington state began wearing dead salmon on their heads , like hats.

Shields’ view is in line with what other orca experts have theorized.

“What I think is probably happening is it’s a playful behavior,” Dr. Deborah Giles, science director at research and advocacy group Wild Orca, said last year . “It’s a social behavior.”

However, one non-playful possibility has gone particularly viral . Biologist Alfredo López Fernandez suggested in a 2022 paper that it all may have started after a female orca known as “White Gladis”  had a traumatic encounter with a boat, then began to act in a defensive manner towards other boats.

That theory helped fuel online support for “team orca,” with many people on social media casting the killer whales as revolutionaries fighting back against human destruction of the natural world.

While Shields doesn’t buy the White Gladis theory, she thinks it’s worth examining why people find the idea of an orca uprising so compelling.

“We recognize that we have done enough to the world to deserve orcas attacking us in response,” she wrote.

Bayer Leverkusen set European record with longest unbeaten run, through to Europa League final

LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY - MAY 09: Josip Stanisic of Bayer Leverkusen celebrates with teammates after scoring his team's second goal during the UEFA Europa League 2023/24 Semi-Final second leg match between Bayer 04 Leverkusen and AS Roma at BayArena on May 09, 2024 in Leverkusen, Germany.

Bayer Leverkusen ’s 2-2 draw against Roma in the Europa League on Thursday night means the German side have gone 49 games unbeaten and broken the record for the longest streak without losing to a European club since the introduction of UEFA club competitions in 1955.

Leverkusen were leading their tie against Roma by two goals following the opening clash, but looked set to lose their first game of the season after two penalties from Leandro Paredes had put the Italian club ahead.

An own goal from Gianluca Mancini in the 82nd minute, however, and a 97th-minute equaliser from Josip Stanisic ensured Leverkusen progressed to the Europa League final following a 4-2 aggregate victory.

Stanisic’s goal, meanwhile, was Leverkusen’s 17th scored in stoppage time this season.

Leverkusen midfielder Granit Xhaka said to TNT Sports: “This is football. It is the nice part of football. For the mentality we showed again today against a big team to come back like this and go through to the final. We are more than happy today.

“You see the desire from the team, we didn’t want to slow down. We wanted to score the next goal to keep going unbeaten, 49 times now. We are proud of it.”

The unbeaten run, which is across all competitions and started with an 8-0 victory over FC Teutonia Ottensen in the German Cup on August 12, has surpassed Portuguese club Benfica’s mark of 48 consecutive games without losing from December 1963 to February 1965.

That Benfica team was spearheaded by Eusebio and they won the Portuguese league and cup over the course of their unbeaten run.

Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen side have avoided defeat in 32 Bundesliga games, five German Cup matches and 12 Europa League games. They have won 40 of these matches.

Unsurprisingly, this has left them on the brink of a treble. They have already won the Bundesliga — ending Bayern Munich’s 11-season dominance as a result — face second-tier Kaiserslautern in the German Cup final on May 25 and Atalanta in the Europa League final on May 22.

If Leverkusen also avoid defeat in their final two league games they will become the first side in Bundesliga history to go a whole season unbeaten.

Here are the five longest unbeaten runs by a European club since 1955:

    The ruleset tends to vary with the game, and this one combines some of the rules of the original Yacht with Yahtzee. Oh, and doing the math, the maximum possible score in this game is 5 + 10 + 15 + 20 + 25 + 30 + 35 + 30 + 30 + 28 + 15 + 30 + 50 = 323.
