Board game fans might be interested to know that Silver Star Reversi is out on 29th June for North America:

Priced at only 500 Nintendo points it will not break the bank.

Very interesting. Not too shabby for 500 points.

Won't be downloading this one for a couple of reasons:

1) Reversi gameplay becomes boring quickly (shallow gameplay)
2) Pointless save feature-most Reversi matches only last a couple of mins at best
3) Replay feature seems to let you rewind a few moves and effectively cheat the COM
4) Only 2 players (I prefer Wiiware that offers much more players)

It may only be 500pts but for 500pts there are a lot better games that offer more depth. Also Reversi was released on Clubhouse games/42 all time classics-any self respecting Nintendo fan will already have a copy.

Reversi? Shirely it would have made sense to have a version of go bundled with that as well?

I love Reversi so this will be good. Unfortunately, we haven't even gotten Silver Star Chess so It could be a long wait.

I'm a huge board game fan but not even I see this as being worth my time or points. Plus, as Gentleben highlighted, Clubhouse Games already does Reversi well and that's good enough for me. Given how SS Chess turned out, I'm sure this'll be too basic for its own good.

I don't remember seeing Reversi on 42 all time classics (A.K.A to Americans Clubhouse games). Haven't played it for months though. Might give it another play through

That's because it was called Turncoat in 42 Classics, it's also called Othello too.

Anyways, talking about board games, I don't mind seeing them on WiiWare, but to release individual games like this with minimal features is pretty much a let down. The best board game compilation to date is 42 Classics/ClubHouse. However if I was going to release this on WiiWare, this is what I would do...

  • Club House Kids: Snakes and Ladders, Ludo/Parcheesi, Drafts/Checkers, and Chinese Checkers.
  • Club House Classics: Chess, Backgammon, Othello/Reversi, and Dominoes.
  • Club House Oriental: Shogi, Mahjong (No not Mahjong Solitaire, the real game with dice and betting sticks!), Go, and Gomoku (5 in a row).

Each WiiWare game features Online play (All versions sharing the same Friend code), Wii Speak support, and a Tutorial mode to teach you how to play the game with a in game tutor that talks about the game to you. I would sell Club House Kids and Classics for 500 points each, and Oriental for 600 points.

Indeed. Compilations would be better or, if not, at least provide us with online play or compelling multiplayer.
