Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is now available on Switch in many regions around the world, and it has launched with a surprise demo that not only lets players check out a few of the full game’s offerings, but also lets you experience multiplayer across multiple screens as long as at least one player owns the full game.
The demo, which is called Pocket Edition in Japan and Local Multiplayer Guest Edition in Australia (at the time of writing it’s not up on the US Eshop yet), will let you play 4 games from the collection for free.
The demo features four-in-a-row (think Connect 4), Dominos, President, and Slot Cars, all of which can be played with one or two players on a single console, with AI joining in if you don’t have enough players. There are tutorials available for the four games included, and you can adjust rules, CPU difficulty, and the number of rounds you’re playing on each game.
More players can join in locally if they also have the demo, and if you connect with someone who owns the full game you can play any of the Worldwide Classics together through it. President and Dominos both support up to four players across two systems.
Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is exclusive to Switch, and actually contains 52 games.
