Besides the name change, the artwork was replaced entirely between Daredemo Asobi Taizen and Clubhouse Games. The Japanese release of the international version also changes the layout slightly for the bigger title, removing the category list and adding shogi tiles and a bowling ball.
There's a ton of menus, and all of them got changed. Upload images of the remaining ones.
All of the game's menus were redone from scratch with completely different graphics; keeping only the layout intact.
When changing pages in Daredemo Asobi Taizen, the icons have a dramatic "drop-in" effect that isn't present in the other versions. The icons themselves are different between versions. Compared to Daredemo Asobi Taizen, the international versions have 8 pages instead of 7 – despite removing the "Japanese Games" category, "Board Games" was split into "Basic Board Games" and "Advanced Board Games", and the "Single-Player Games" category was added. The order, and in some cases location, of the games was altered as well.
Seven of the games are different between Daredemo Asobi Taizen and the international versions.

Compared to Daredemo Asobi Taizen, the Japanese re-release altered the colors.
The pop-up that appears when the player unlocks a new game or design was redone completely between versions, changing the layout, formatting, and design.
