Easing Out of Animal Crossing: New Horizons

From year-round events, to hundreds of villagers to meet, to the struggle of paying off your mortgage, Animal Crossing games are generally designed with longevity in mind. With New Horizons, it’s probably the best equipped in the series to keep players engaged for years to come.

I’ll certainly pop back in from time-to-time to manage my turnips and partake in major events. However, my daily grind is probably over at this point. And that’s okay.

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics Review

Does the world need another Clubhouse Games?

Before the advent of smartphones, Clubhouse Games on the Nintendo DS was quite the novelty. Compilations of these classic games that could be played on-the-go didn’t exist at the time. Though I only played a bit of it, my mom bought her own DS so she could play it to her heart’s content without having to bug my brother or I for our handhelds.

Not long after, smartphones, app stores, and free-to-play games emerged to the forefront. Most of the classic games contained in Clubhouse Games were the first to make the transition. Heck, some of the games within the new Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics already have cheap alternatives on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Do you really need to pay a premium for Nintendo’s versions of these games?

Discovering the Joy of Yahtzee Through Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics

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.
