OK, so maybe I don't have 42 reasons to get this game like the title suggests, but this is a game that deserves your attention.
For starters, you get 42 games for under £20, if that's not a bargain then I don't know what is.
There are some real gems in this game that will bring back some nostalgia in your life with games such as Ludo, Dominos and even a Battleships-type game. For the more modern gamer there's a selection of Billiards, Bowling and Darts; and for the gambler inside of you there's Blackjack too. There are even some games that you've, probably, never even heard of.
Single player mode has three different options -Stamp mode, Mission mode and Free Play mode-.
In Stamp mode you have to win each of the 42 games against the computer; once you've won the first game you receive a stamp and then move on to the next game, and so on.
Mission mode is pretty obvious but very tricky. You have to complete a certain objective in a certain game, such as getting 5 strikes in-a-row in Bowling or getting a "Straight" in Rummy.
And Free Play mode lets you play any of the 42 games at your leisure.
Multi Player mode is great fun too. With Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, not only can you challenge people across the globe, but you and also communicate with them due to the games built in Picto Chat function. The Picto Chat function also work with the normal DS-to-DS Multi Player games too. You can even download a demo version to your friends Nintendo DS so that they can see how great this game is.
This game is fantastic and is very easy to just pick up and play. It's also a great way to introduce your friends or family into gaming, and for under £20 you really can't go wrong.
