Summary: I already have the game I just need one for my wife and a friend when we travel its a great game to be able to play with on the plane and also great to sit on the blacone late at night because you cane see it in the dark espasely in the carabeen thank again jacques
Summary: I am a moderate "older" DS user and was looking for a good travel game. I tried this out because it has solitare and crosswords and I am a big "Dummies" fan. However, there is something to be desired in this game. I tried a couple crosswords and although they have different categories they repeat alot of questions throughout the categories and often only a couple questions have anything to do with the category. I do like the "hints" feature though.
Summary: I enjoyed playing the Travel Games for Dummies crosswords games and whipped through them in no time. I also own copies of both the CrossworDS and the New York Times Crosswords games. The Crosswords game interface in Travel Games for Dummies is much better, particularly in that you can choose letters from a keypad. CrossworDS and NY Times games depend on handwriting recognition, upping the annoyance factor when it comes out wrong.
Summary: The SUDOKU puzzles included here go from the very easy to the very hard. For the "Hard" and "Very Hard" puzzles I specially like the optional feature that can pencil-in the candidate numbers for you. It saves a lot of time. However, this feature is not good for the "Easy" puzzles. The automatic pencil-in feature makes easy puzzles too short and simple--it takes away the basic effort needed to solve them.
Summary: This game is okay. It has a good variety of Solitaire games, but I prefer Brain Age's Sudoku and CrossworDS' Crossword puzzles over the ones in this game. I think I've played it twice. I would recommend trying before buying.
Summary: First I should admit that I find Sudoku boring, so I did not purchase this game for the Sudoku. I have dallied with the Sudoku and appreciated the quick pencil option to run through the Sudoku puzzles quickly. I've tried the crosswords, and they are good, but limited. Definitely use the keyboard option because the print recognition doesn't work all that great. I couldn't get it to recognize "m"s no-how! What I would most recommend on this game is the Solitaire.
Summary: For the video game enthusiast who tends to gravitate toward puzzle games when browsing store shelves, Travel Games for Dummies for the Nintendo DS may be the perfect item to occupy your time. Whether you're actually traveling or just relaxing with your DS, the light challenge this little cartridge offers is the perfect combination of mental stimulation and old fashioned fun.
Summary: This game was worth more than what I got it for. There are so many puzzles for Sudoku. I like how you can select the number you want instead of having the game guess what you are trying to write. Once you complete a square or a certain number, the numbers will pop up letting you know that particular is correct! =) You can select what level you want too. Haven't even tried the other games yet!
