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.
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.
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,...
great game for those who like card and board games.

Excerpt: 42 time classics is one of the first games I bought for my ds and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. Play alone or with up to 8 players *including yourself. Play card games like concentration and maid 7's and poker as well as rummy and lots of others. Play bowling and darts frustration backgammon. As well as a whole lot more. There will always be something you want to play on here.
Excerpt: The 42 All Time Classics I have for the DS has a different box cover to the one that's pictured here, but it is the same game inside. I got it for £16.99 from Amazon, but you can get it slightly cheaper from a few different retailers at the moment, it's well worth checking places like Asda and Argos for lower prices. This game is just brilliant in a word! I don't think I ever thought it was possible to have so much fun with a gameboy!!
Excerpt: I brought 42 classic games awhile back when I first got my Nintendo DS for £14 and was amazed by the collection it had on offer. When you use this game for the first time you are greeted with the settings section where you pick one of fifty icons to represent you. Then you have to input your name if you want a different name from what you have called your DS.
Excerpt: I've had no problems atall with this product since I bought it last month for my kids on a long car journey. The game has the options of multiplayer or single player mode. The multiplayer mode is great fun as you can go against people at a game of bowling or black jack with no limits. The game is splits into 3 sections ; card games, board games and single player games. If you are not in multiplayer mode, you can also battle against the computer.
Excerpt: this should be a definite buy for every nintendo ds owner. it is exactly what it says on the tin really. 42 all time classics. from majjong (spelling?) to solitaire to chequers it really does have it all. it appears to be quite reasonably priced wherever you purchase it from, especially in comparison to many other games. with its wide variety of different games i brought this when i first purchased my console.
Excerpt: As it says in the title, classic games. As I enjoy a variety of puzzle games I thought this one sounded good and I wasn't disappointed at all. There are many games to suit all tastes such as texas poker, rummy, solitaire and many other card games that I didn't even know about until I played this but they soon became firm favourites. You also have a good selection of board games like checkers, chinese checkers, chess etc.
Excerpt: 42 All Time Classics was among the first few games I got for the DS, on the recommendation of a friend. The first thing I'll say is that this is a great starting point for those new to the DS. There are loads of different games on one cartridge (42 games oddly enough...) so there's plenty to keep you busy until you can build up your collection of DS games.
