The list author says: "I got my 60-ish mom a Nintendo DS, and I'm looking for more games she might like. She is not at all a gamer, but she likes playing Solitaire on her laptop. So, I've been looking for other games with simple rules that are relaxing to play. All the comments of the games below are just about their suitability for her, and they might not be useful to players with different (or even typical) tastes. However, I think it might be helpful for others looking for DS games for somewhat older women."
"This came in a bundle with the DS itself, but she doesn't like it (I don't either, really). The most accessible games (that come unlocked) aren't so much fun, and she's not really interested in learning to play Sudoku. This one is a fail."
