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.Read more ›
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.
The Sudoku games are fine, though I like Brain Age Sudoku better. The biggest annoyance I have w/the Travel Games Sudoku is that when you win a game, it just disappears. Oddly enough, I like it when a game gives you a little bit of a thumbs up upon completion.
All in all though, if they came out w/a Travel Games for Dummies II, I'd purchase it just for the Crosswords games.

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. Read morePublished on January 25, 2010 by Amanda
