So I collect and play board games, but I also collect and play video game.
Never the twain shall meet... or shall they?

Recently I've tried to track down a few DS-based conversions of various board games. It's made me curious if there are more that I've missed - especially that might have been released in other languages/territories.

I'm hoping that people can help me fill out this list, adding other official Nintendo DS or 3DS games releases for board game conversions.

Some quick ground rules:
(1) NO homebrew - I know there are some good homebrew adaptations of various board games, but that doesn't help with what I'm collecting.
(2) One entry per game cartridge - There are some game compilation cartridges out there; if you add one, please add a single geeklist item and specify the additional games in the description instead of adding multiple list items for a single game.
(3) Language doesn't matter (but if you know what languages are supported, please mention them so that people will know if the game is playable for them).


(Note: Games will be sorted alphabetically.)

Carcassonne

Reports suggest that the interface/controls aren't great.
(I'll fill in some comments/impressions after receiving the game.)

Fritz Chess

A nice portable chess game for one or two players, with a pretty reasonable AI strength. The big draw for this release is the inclusion of three different play modes: classic chess, chess 960, or giveaway chess. Also includes 2000 classic games to review, but without any analysis or commentary the value taken will depend on the player.


Chessmaster: The Art of Learning

Not as competitive AI, but includes more instruction and various types of practice exercises that may make it preferable for less experienced players. (Also saw a larger print run, and so tends to be much more affordable than Fritz.)

Clubhouse Games

A collection of many public domain (and some well-known but renamed) classic card and board games, broken into the following categories:

* Card games: Old Maid, Spit, I Doubt It, Sevens, Memory, Pig, Blackjack, Hearts, President, Rummy, Seven Bridge, Last Card, Last Card Plus, Five Card Draw, Texas hold 'em, Nap, Spades, and Contract Bridge.
* Board games: Chinese checkers, Checkers, Dots and Boxes, Hasami shogi, Turncoat, Connect Five, Grid Attack, Backgammon, Chess, Shogi, Field Tactics, and Ludo.
* Variety games: Soda Shake, Dominoes, Koi-Koi, and Word Balloon.
* Action games: Bowling, Darts, Billiards, Balance, and Takeover.
* Single player games: Solitaire, Escape, and Mahjong solitaire.

I've added a bunch of links, but didn't take time to confirm most of them. This is actually a really solid collection of games - some just as simple diversions, some actually worth repeated play. Most games support multiplayer using a single cartridge, which is a big draw for the game.
