This is a sub-page of Clubhouse Games.

Hmmm...
To do:
There's a ton of menus, and all of them got changed. Upload images of the remaining ones.

Title screen

Like many of other games, the Nintendo logo is blue in Japan, but red in the west. The Japanese logo is also slightly wider.

Besides the name change, the artwork was replaced entirely between Daredemo Asobi Taizen and Clubhouse Games. The Japanese release of the international version changes the layout slightly for the bigger title, removes the category list while adding the shogi tiles and bowling ball, and updates the copyright year.

Menus

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.
