    Oh yeah, Crazy machines. And Cogs. Verry nice! Cogs is for the Ipad though, so the graphics come out better (on the Ipad).

    just thought I would add a couple more as the holidays approach... A few others that DS6 likes that are more solitare type games include: Hoppers, Block by block, Kanoodle, Amaze, and chocolate fix. Also, really likes cosmic catch...but not sure what category that game would go in. Nice to get some energy out on a day (or months) when you can't go outside. Also if anyone likes Archtecto or Equilibrio let me know...we are thinking of putting that on the request list for DS for the holidays but didn't want it to be just another one just like what he already has.

    My DS has been enjoying Spellbound and Tableland by Australian Company (now closed down I believe) Jigsaw Educational Products. I've recently taught him to play Backgammon which has been a huge hit.

    Wow great thread, just made my xmas shopping a matter of copy and paste into amazon smile

    I am way late on this but I have experience with one of the games feedback was requested on so here goes. We purchased Meta-Forms for DS then 5 last xmas, I would say it has been a hit, definitely something that offers a challenge for the entire family but it is single player

    You have three shapes in three colors and you have to place them on the board in a way that conforms to the rules listed for each of the 80 puzzles. So for example they will say a blue triangle has to go next to a yellow square but not below a red square. As the game advances your asked to place a blue shape next to a square not below a yellow shape, that type of thing

    Happy Holidays

    PS. I would also recommend Castle Logix/Royal Rescue for younger kids (3+), my son loved both of these (single player).

    I have no feedback to offer (more than what was given here). My DC love the "regulars" - Scrabble, Boggle, Chess, Uno, Battleship, etc...

    My favorite game as a kid, besides Boggle, was Simon. It really stinks that they don't make it anymore and Simon 2 wasn't as good and is now really expensive!!! wink

    Unfortunately, it looks like I can't edit the original post any more. There must be a time limit. Sorry. frown
