I think this looks pretty cool.

It's gaming with educational value! But I dislike the 'can only play so much in one day' aspect, much like Animal Crossing, Seaman, et al.

You could play it at work and if you get caught, just say you are trying to be smarter, for the company's sake.

Wonder if I am the only one who actually bought this game???

I just got it yesterday, and I have say, it kind of feels good.. with the exception that I am flustered that I am only 25 yrs old and simple mathwork is already not as easy as it use to be..... but I guess that's why it's a good idea to have this game and actually play it once a day. :)

I picked it up, My brain age is currently 35 I think. I had it down to 27 last time but I guess I was stupid yesterday (last time I played)

I think I started at 45-ish?

You know, this game really has me wanting a DS (for the first time). My mental math sucks (I blame the horrors of time tests in school, where the smart kids got to go to recess early while I still was trying to do multiplication tables). But this looks like a really fun and entertaining way to "stay sharp". If Nintendo can perk the interest of a begrudged gamer such as myself, they may just be on to something.

It's funny too, because it gives you little health hints in between games, like eat a healthy breakfast daily because it supplies your brain with carbohydrates which helps it work more effeciently each day. and like it says to count your brush strokes when brushing your teeth, because that also activates your brain and helps keep ya sharp!! Guess I have to start actually brushing in order for that one to work :wink:

I can say I am addicted to it already and I've only played it twice since yesterday... anyone who has a DS should pick it up, then we can rule the world with our intellect!!!!

My new brain age is now 34!!

I'm assuming that the best score is 20 years old, cuz that's what it keeps saying. man... I'd love to be 20 again....

It was only $20, so it makes for a good impulse buy :)

yeah it is :), but it's not really a story type game, it's just repeition everyday, training yourself to make your brain smarter :) (math problems, counting, reading etc..), but it does have soduku!! and it's really a cool game for when ya travel :)

I recommend getting it, but don't expect it to be a game you are trying to "beat" lol

i saw soduku is in there.. and i've wanted to learn, so that would be nifty.

im not that huge of a game player anymore, more just for the occasional entertainment and much shorter playing times.

thanks for the info.. i might "splurge" and get it this weekend.
