Summary: I will say this right up front: yes, the actual board games are more fun than this--and there are other video games that have done this better. However, you get a nice varied collection with this that will suit different sorts. There are games for all ages. If you don't have anyone to play with, you can play against the computer. It is also great if you are too tired or too sick to drag out a board game.
Summary: I got my mom into playing the wii, and this was perfect for us to play together or by yourself. I would come home from work, my mother had put my kids to bed and enjoyed her time playing the wii Ultimate Board Game Collection. A few games we weren't too familar with so those were fun getting to know.
Summary: I personally liked this game. You can play the following, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, Chinese Checkers, Reversi, Sudoku, Word Cubes, Jigsaws, Mahjongg, Gomoku, Naval Battle and Quatro. I really like Navle Battle and Mahjongg but I'm an old school player.
Summary: Annoying background music, but turn off the sound. Checkers is hard to get to hold on to the pieces and move. Also makes you use a jump even if you don't want to. Is nice to play sit down games instead of all the exercising.
Summary: This disc contains 12 games. - Chess. It has 3 levels easy, medium and hard. Up to 4 players can play at the same time. I have not played it. So I don't know how sophisticated it is. - Checkers. This game is only suitable for kids because the moves are very limited. You can move only to the adjacent unoccupied square. I don't even play it on the real board. - Reversi. It's challenging but it's easy to play. It's a good party game. It's meant for 2 players only.
Summary: I am not really into board games as mush as I use to be,but I was curious for something to play on my WII console. So I thought I would try this out. Yes,i was very excited to receive it and in perfect condition to. I couldn't wait to try it out. Well,the games were addicting.,meaning so much fun,i really didn't want to stop. The only thing is that the color of the games and Wii's were dull,not bright...maybe they are suppose to be like that,don't know.
