New To the DS but thought this was a great brain game

Summary: The person who said this was a waste of money and the instructions were not clear, is dead wrong. This gives step by step instructions on how to solve the problems. There are a really great variety of brain teasers in 6 different categories. Only thing is I wish there were degrees of difficulty to choose from as some things are easy for me and some are hard. Overall this is a great game that works out your brain.
Excerpt: I bought this for my 9 year old son who has a DS. I wanted to get him something where he could learn while also playing. Eventually I settled on this game after reading some small buzz about it recently. On a 7 hour car trip, my kid actually stayed quiet thanks to this game. He loves it and he is doing better on math tests! I kid you not. I too have begun playing the game. Thanks ThinkSMART!
