Are you a bad enough dude to
42 card games, board games, variety games, action games and single-player games, all in one DS card! Also features a Stamp mode where you win a number of stamp depending on whether you win or not, and a Mission mode where you have to accomplish 30 missions. Also, this game was notable for being the first ever one to get a 12 rating relating to gambling in Europe.
Other than the entire title screen layout being changed, the original Japanese version was called Daredemo Asobi Taizen. Meanwhile, the US version changes the name to Clubhouse Games and in Europe, it was called 42 All-Time Classics. The Japanese release of the International version also changes the layout slightly further for the bigger title and added shogi tiles.
Some of the games are different between the Japanese version and the international version.
Either pictures or YouTube videos.
The Japanese version featured the games Goninkan, Bozumekuri, Sugoroku, Size Game, Last One, Mini Golf, and Napoleon. The international version featured Texas Hold 'Em, Dots and Boxes, Grid Attack, Ludo, Dominoes, Escape, and Mahjong Solitaire.
The original Japanese version also lacks the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service. However, in 2007 a Japanese-language version of the international game was released in Japan, as "Wi-Fi Taiou: Sekai no Daredemo Asobi Taizen", featuring the Wi-Fi modes and the same set of games from the international release.
