A basic yet boredom breaker of a game, very good value for money

  • Excerpt: Released in 2006, this compendium of card, board and 'action' games bought many classics together in one helpful cartridge for the DS. But will it leave you frustrated by its simplicity or help pass the time. After the game has loaded a menu will come up with single player, multi-player and settings.

Good, basic game but nothing too exciting

  • Excerpt: This game does exactly what it says on the tin, no more and no less. There are 42 games to play which range from 'action games' including bowling, topple and soda shake, to board games such as chess, draughts, chinese checkers and backgammon, to single player games such as solitaire and mayjong solitaire. And of course, not forgetting the card games. There are three levels of card games which include hearts, cheat, rummy, betting games, pig etc.

42 All Time Classics (DS)

Rex Inego, Verdicts
30 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Wow - 42 games on one tiny cartridge. Surely not thinks me. Maybe they have cheated by including small variations of the same game. But no. 42 different and separate games there are. And there's enough variation to keep everyone happy. Card games, board games, arcade(ish) games. Games of chance and games of skill.

A must for the DS

  • Excerpt: This game does exactly what it says on the box. Nothing exciting, no flash graphics, 3d functionality or fictional story line spanning many centuries and/or galaxies. Just 42 games that you'd play in real life, if it didn't mean having to clear up afterwards! This game is (up to 8) multiplayer without others needing the game itself, so you can play cards/backgammon/chess etc with someone - without needing a flat surface/space etc.

Compulsive

  • Summary: These may be classic games but some I have never heard of before. Have enjoyed playing a number of these games. The instructions are clear and the graphics very good. Easy and fast response to any moves makes playing these games a pleasure. No doubt I will have a go at all the games eventually but for now I am trying to improve my skill at Marjong, if that is how you spell it.

A good game attempt

  • Excerpt: I love vintage style games such as Tetris and Asteroids I guess I can sound weird in that respect but I actually found this Nintendo DS game actually pretty good. The game is 42 all time classics and it contains games such as bowling and dominoes and your aim is to either play the computer or play against friends, I much prefer against my friends and it adds to a challenge type situation.

A must have for your DS collection

  • Excerpt: 42 all time classics was one of the first games I bought for the DS. It's such a simple idea for a game that will please people of all ages. The game comprises of 42 different mini games (though I can't say that I've counted). The games are separated in to different categories as follows (I've also given examples of games that can be found within those categories): Basic Card Games (Including: Old Maid, Spit, Sevens) Intermediate Card Games (Including: Blackjack, Hearts,...

Will stave away boredom for some time, but not forever

  • Excerpt: The beauty of 42 All-Time Classics is that you get 42 games for the price of one for your Nintendo DS. The only issue with it is that not all the games are "classics" and you'll certainly end up favouring certain ones over others in a very short time period. The games are categorised in to the following groups: BASIC CARD GAMES Old Maid Spit I Doubt It Sevens Memory Pig INTERMEDIATE CARD GAMES Blackjack Hearts President Rummy Seven Bridge Last Card Last Card Plus...

Hours of fun with family and friends with 42 games in a collection which has stood the test of time

  • Excerpt: INTRODUCTION 42 All Time Classics was one of the first games I bought for my Nintendo DS Lite when I had it three years ago. The wide variety of games really impressed me including chess, backgammon and a few others too, and also that the game has a multiplayer mode which means I could challenge my mother and/or friends on their consoles using the one game card and without losing playing pieces and playing cards - I doubt we have a full games set in this house!

  • Pros: Good selection of games, challenging, multiplayer mode
  • Cons: Some obscure games, sound effects and music, can't save games
