It includes all the ingredients for a game night with friends and family, with multiplayer favorites like Dominoes, Four-in-a-Row and Slot Cars.

“Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics opens up a new world of choices for Nintendo Switch players,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Bringing these classic games from around the world to Nintendo Switch gives players even more ways to connect online with friends and family.”
The extensive lineup of single-player and multiplayer options makes this collection a gateway to entertainment for everyone. There are games that can be enjoyed with other players on a single Nintendo Switch system in TV mode, some in Handheld mode (with touch-screen sharing) and some in Tabletop mode. Mosaic Mode lets you connect locally with other Nintendo Switch owners in creative configurations, such as Slot Cars, in which you can arrange up to four Nintendo Switch systems side-by-side on a surface to create a nearly endless amount of track configurations. Other games, such as Bowling and Darts, offer motion controls as well, delivering a wide range of fun ways to play.
Online play with a Nintendo Switch Online** membership allows you to compete with friends or random players around the world. Explore which games your friends or players around the world are enjoying by using the Guide Globe, an interactive globe interface with Game Guides. Learn fun facts about the international community of players, such as favorite foods, recommended games and their in-game achievements. Play to your heart’s content with fellow game enthusiasts across the world.
