This game is perfect for when you just need a break from your RPG's, Brain Games, and Nintendogs. Just pop it in and pick between four classics, each with new themes. Play old school Battleship with a Pirate setting or Yahtzee on the moon! I had never played Boggle until I got this game and now I love it! The multiplayer is fine with some games but could be a little better. You can do a limited download link or a hot seat and pass your DS to your buddies. This game is perfect for when I'm at break during the long work day, and see if I can break a record. And if you want a longer game there is always Monopoly! The beauty of this game is you have all these games on ONE cartridge for ONE price or game in your Q. AND you never have to find the box, read the instructions, set it up, count out money, pick up dice when they fall of the table, and no clean up just push the Power button! Really a great game for any gamer and a must play for any board gamers.
I loved the board games as a kid and the DS made a great adaptation of these classics. Monopoly allows for you to pick the AI skill level so that you can have a challenge. You can also make it easier or customize rules. Boggle offers variations of the game via its word hunt and word count challenges. There are a few others but I have yet to play them. With Battleship you were able to change the theme to spaceships, pirates, submarines, classic, modern or viking. Yahtzee also had multiple themes like hamster, pisa, haunted, lava, lunar and classic. The different themes did not change the game play but it did make things a little bit more kitchy. My only complaint would be the AI speed during Monopoly. It is real time and you are not able to speed up or skip over the AI(s) turn making for a longer unnecessary wait if your playing with 4 players; 3 AI. Other than that I loved it. It made a 8hr road trip much better.
