Zen and the Art of DS Puzzle Games

Zen and the Art of DS Puzzle Games

Disclosure

Several months ago, my mother-in-law went to visit a friend in the hospital.  He proudly showed off his new game and how it was helping keep his brain active.  When she came to visit us, she told us all about it and said it sounded interesting.

We set out to find out what the game was and eventually figured out she was referring to the Nintendo DS and the game was Brain Age.  I was intrigued that this gaming system was becoming such a hit with Baby Boomers.

While researching, we found that the DS isn’t just a system for kids.  Many of its games focus on non-traditional gamers.  As an example, The Game Factory created the Zenses games specifically targeted at womenZenses: Ocean and Zenses: Rainforest are puzzle games with relaxing ambient sounds and rainforest or ocean graphics to help women escape the stresses of everyday life.

Once again, here’s your chance to participate in an awesome giveaway!

The Prize

One Zenses Ocean and one Zenses Rainforest – for the DS (approx value $60).
