Nintendo DS WIN ONE HERE!!!!


I recently got to try out the Nintendo DS and the new crosswords game that was just released on May 5th. Nintendo DS revolutionizes handheld game play. With two ultra bright screens, 3D graphics, touch-screen technology and wireless communication, you can challenge yourself or your friends anywhere, anytime.

Nintendo DS brings multiple features together to deliver cutting-edge games for fans of every genre. Pit your wits and test your skills against other players everywhere – from the other side of the room to the other side of the world. With a great library of games means there’s something for everyone.

Buy it online at amazon ($129.99)

The Crosswords Game is a lot of fun! In Crosswords DS, you’ll find puzzles perfect for everyone regardless of age or experience. Exercise your word skills in more than a thousand touch-control word puzzles to challenge every skill level.

Crosswords DS offers crossword puzzles at multiple skill levels to engage any player, all controlled with the Nintendo DS stylus. Simply use the stylus to write your answers on the touch screen. Erase your mistakes with a quick tap on the screen, or write new answers directly over old ones.

An interactive hint system helps you move along at your own pace. For particularly puzzling problems, tap the “Hint” button to receive an additional clue, reveal a letter or have the word solved for youβ€”the choice is yours.

The wordplay doesn’t stop with crosswords. “Word search” challenges you to find words hidden among random letters, while “Anagrams” will stretch your imagination to see how many words you can assemble from a group of letters.

Would you like a chance to win your own Nintendo DS game system AND a Crosswords DS game? (retail value is $149.98)

  1. I would love to win this for my Mother in law. She would have so much fun with the cross word puzzle.

  2. Wow! Awesome prize!

    I would love to win this system and game to replace my daughters that she gave away last Christmas to a neighbor boy who wasn’t getting much for Christmas.

    Thank you for the great giveaway!

    mommy mandy rocks!


  3. I’d love to win one of these game systems for my grandsons. These two boys love video games and I could show them how much I love them even I’m far away from them.

  4. A Nintendo DS is the #1 thing on our family wishlist! My 7 and 9-year-old boys have been asking for one (or preferably two!) for months & months & months now, but we haven’t been able to afford one, especially considering the cost of getting several games for it, too. But I did tell them if I could win one, I could use the money we saved to afford a few games!

    My 9-year-old likes crossword puzzles & any kind of brain games, so if it’s at his level he would definitely use it. But I guarantee my husband, who is a big crossword fan, would be using that game, too!

  5. What a wonderful giveaway. Both my sons want a ds so badly and I would love to try this crosswords game. I love crosswords so much. Thank you so much for offering this giveaway.
    I do have the answers to the crossword puzzle, but can’t figure out if we are to send the answers to you.
    Thank you again and please enter me.

  6. My daughter has been begging for a Nintendo DS. I’d love to win this. I love crossword puzzles. Thanks!

    This is a FANTASTIC prize!

  19. My son is currently staying with his dad in another state. I got him a DS last year for his birthday and when he is here, so is his DS. He begs and begs for me to get my own DS so we can play while he is away. We could even “picto” something or other…LOL

  22. When I was PG, my DH got me one of these as a gift for labor..the whole deal was that I would play it while I was waiting to dialate. Yeah. Right. I totally forgot it existed!! LMAO! The poor thing went neglected as I went from ignoring it during labor, then having a newborn, then having a i have a three year old. I cant say I have TONS of time, but this would be a great gift for long car rides..she is just getting at the age where she can play games in the car and i would love to give her something to keep from dropping apple slices on the backseat.

  32. I’d love to win one for my nephew since his 18th birthday is coming up soon.

    lilacbutterfly [at]

  33. My aon wants one in the worst way. His broke about a year ago and he has been asking for another since.

  36. I think this would be great for my nieces and nephews. they are into video games. I might try it out myself too. I love crossword puzzles!

  37. Liz has been wanting a handheld video system and the Nintendo DS is the one she wants most. I would be the one playing the crosswords game because I love all word puzzles.

  38. I would like to win this for my daughter. She could play with it on the long car trips to Nana and Pap’s.

  39. My sons and I spend 12 – 15 hours a week driving in the car. I’d love to win this to give them something else do while we drive. After 4 years of the massive round trip to school and back, the usual ‘car games’ are wearing very thin and with gas prices being what they are … well, I’d have to win because I can’t buy one. Thanks for the chance!

  40. I love crossword puzzles, I do the NY Magazine puzzle all the time. This would be perfect for me.

    tuesdayef (At)aol(dot)com

  41. I would love to win this DS because I am a huge Nintendo fan. My husband took my DS with him on the road and I miss it.

  42. This is one of those items that I have wanted for years, even more so now that they have games like Cross Words and Brain Age out. But I am one of those mom’s where the kids always come first. So I always end up putting my wants and desires behind theirs and end up not getting what I want so the kids can have what they want.

  43. My daughter is dying for a DS, and it would be great to have a game that I would enjoy!

    kelli at pfrog dot net

  44. I would love a DS but times are tight! Thanks for the opportunity.

    peragine (at) gmail (dot) com

  45. I would love to win because I love crosswords. The DS system would be perfect to take on car trips or waiting rooms.

  46. I want to win this game system because I don’t have one and I want to spend lots and lots of money buying games and accessories for it…and I love word games.

  47. This would be perfect! I have been wanting one for awhile now. My son gets jealous that my daughter has one. So I could supervise him and let him use it once awhile. Plus I could kick back and do crossword puzzles! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  48. Crossword answers:
    2. Luigi
    3. June 23
    4. family
    5. game
    6. Mario
    10. Super Nintendo

    7. Nintendo
    9. princess
    11. WII
    12. DS

    And the reason I need to win this (or both actually LOL) is because my middle son has a DS however I have 3 children so 1 ds + 3 children = a very crazy mommy always breaking up fights. Not to mention I like to play it too and being a mom, I should get equal play time should I not, I am all about mom rights. So please pick me for the DS I desperately need them, not to mention the 12 hour car ride i am going on for vacation will go much smoother.

    My email is and i will blog about this contest on my blog
