I bought this because I liked the fact it had solitaire, mahjong and tangrams (I love tangrams). The selection of solitaire games can be overwhelming, but it's fun learning new games. Missing from the games are Clock and Tripeaks. I figured out of that many games, they would be there, they are not. The tangrams are a lot of fun and the mahjong, while fun, isn't easy on the eyes. The tiles are very small.
I wish the cards/tiles, etc. were a bit larger on this game and of course, they had included two of my favorite solitaire games, plus even more tangrams would have been great. Otherwise, it's packed full of stuff to do and new games to learn. I'm not entirely sure it's worth $30, unless they are counting content alone, but I feel I'll get my moneys worth out of it since it's a game I can continue playing for years to come.
It also includes jigsaw puzzles, but since they don't interest me on this platform I haven't bothered with that feature.
I love playing Mahjong. This is the main reason I got this DS game. The tiles are very tiny and what can you expect when you have a tiny screen on a DS game right? It's okay if you have good eyesight. I like that it has Solitaire too. This game also has Picture Puzzles which I was not aware of! That's fun! I don't really do the Tangram, but the picture puzzles can be challenging. It's a good buy.
The solitare game I purchased at Amazon has so many different games I have not played all of them yet. This is what I do while I am waiting for appointments, traveling, or just want to try a new game I have not played. I can stop a game at any time and start a new game with no problem. There are games I have never heard of, I enjoy playing these new games. It is fun to keep your brain active while learning something new. I would recommend this game to a first timer, ASIN:B000WCIHCE Solitaire Overload - Nintendo DS] at age 67 even I enjoy playing these games.
There are sooooooo many games and versions that it will never become exhausted. You can select backgrounds, playing boards, card back designs, which makes it very eye appealing. You can also, choose a time mode, skill or chance and so much more. I am glad I bought it. It was $10 cheaper on Amazon.
Indeed the tiles are small, but I haven't seen a Game of this sort that doesn't ! It's still a lot of fun and a good choose of three different types of game favorites! Highly recommend for all ages. Loads of fun !
