    Ummm... they ARE all on a disc.
    Heck, just walk into any Wal-mart or what have you.
    No they're not all on the disc! I know because I have the disc and I'm looking at it right now, the only games that come on the disc are;

    Battleship
    Connect 4
    Yahtzee
    Boggle
    Sorry!
    Sorry! Sliders

    Which means if you want all of the games achievements you'll need to buy; Connect 4x4, Jenga, Pitureka and Scrabble as DLC for the game as none of them come on any discs. On top of that Scrabble is only available in the NTSC region as Hasbro don't own the licence for that board game anywhere outside of the U.S.

    Oh and don't bother making an American account for it because it also only works on NTSC Xbox 360's. If you download it from the American marketplace and try to play it, it simply will not work as the game is region locked.
    Thanks, I was gonna try and get Scrabble that way. Glad I didn't.

    Fuggin' copyright issues man, what a joke. Scrabble on a video game system, that's another joke.

    It depends on the region. In the US, Scrabble does come on the disc. I'm sure that's what doowylloH was getting at.

    Such a stupid thing. They even region locked the DLC. What a crock.

    Just buy Comic Jumper for 400 points.

    Why would anyone (who doesn't already own Comic Jumper) buy freaking Jenga over that game?

    Comic Jumper at 5 bucks is one of the biggest deals XBLA has ever had. Such a good value.

    It definitely makes $5 for any of these games seem like a rip-off in comparison. laugh

    Hmm.. 4000 points on sale...

    There has got to be a better way, 2800 card plus a 1400 point card in Canada are 60 dollars plus tax, so essentially a new retail title.

    Are these different than what is on the retail disks of FGN and FGN3? I am wondering if I can get away with buying retail used to make it cheaper?

    Edit: looks like someone answered part of my question above.

    I'd hop on this if I hadn't already spent all my points on the Sonic series on the XBLA.

    Will probably pick up a few this time. I only need Scrabble, Connect 4x4, Sorry, and Sorry Sliders. I don't know which ones to chose.
