Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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. Featuring three time tested puzzles--Sudoku, Solitaire, and Crosswords--Travel Games appeals to players of all ages, and parents need not screen this choice for sex and violence before handing it over to young gamers.

The game can be picked up and mastered almost immediately in its simplicity. Three choices, each choice offering different levels of expertise, and an easily accessible help menu provide instant entertainment. It is not clear how Sudoku and Solitaire made it into the "dummies" classification, but the crossword puzzles are fairly simple, even on the most difficult level. Several of the clues repeat, and words can be deciphered by trying out different letters until the computer accepts them. If you're easily frustrated with the inability to finish a crossword, have no fear. In addition to the aforementioned cheats, bonus letters rotate around the board, so if you happen to solve a clue while it's highlighted, you can earn up to three bonus clues at a time. Later, when you're having trouble coming up with an answer, you can use a bonus to receive an extra clue.

Sudoku and Solitaire require more strategy than knowledge, so the difficulty will vary with the user's skill. Personally, I'm not so hot with numbers, so even the beginner levels of Sudoku were a challenge for me. Solitaire also relies on the luck of the draw, so some games are naturally more challenging than others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun May 11, 2009

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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. There are many different types of Solitaire offered. The game works faster than solitaire on the computer and is very easy to use and understand. My only complaint about the solitaire is that in the blink of an eye, the game quits and tells you there are no moves left. I'd have preferred it if the game let you run through once or twice before telling you that.

However, this game has given me endless hours of fun and I highly recommend it for the Solitaire. If you like Sudoku, there are about 100 puzzles per skill level and about 5 skill levels. The crossword is good, but again, limited.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great travel game from home December 8, 2008

Loved the Solitaire so much, that I have not done the Soduku at all. The crossword does not try to guess at your handwriting; it features a tiny keyboard. I sold two copies by suggesting it to friends!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Travel Game! December 17, 2008

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!
