Wi-Fi Table Games: like Clubhouse Games but smaller and more competitive

A new Game Night contender is on the way to Japan. Hudson released some screenshots of Selected Wi-Fi Table Games, a collection of six classic games in the vein of Clubhouse Games. And by "in the vein of Clubhouse Games" we mean "pretty much the same as Clubhouse Games." The major difference seems to be nationwide ranking, which is admittedly pretty cool.

The included games are Go, Renju, Reversi, Hanafuda, Mah-jongg, and something called Oodomi that uses Western playing cards. The bottom screen shows the game board or table, while the top screen displays character avatars and score information. At the risk of editorializing too much, the online competition had better be mind-blowing to make up for the severe lack of selection.

1. It will not overcome the masterful Games that are Clubhouse. No, says I.

2. Clubhouse already has rankings, Renju (Connect Five), Reversi (Turncoat), and two-player Hanafunda (Koi-Koi).
But, this has Go. If it's a budget title, that alone will force me to buy it immediatley.

3. Clubhouse is all I play anymore.

5. If this game is $20 or less, I will buy.


For it has Go.

6. This one sounds tempting just because it has Go and Othello(reversi or whatever you want to call it)

Heck, hearing that clubhouse games has Othello makes me think I might ought to pick it up.
