Brain training

Who has brought the Nintendo DS brain training .
Do you still do it everyday & has it made a difference.
I've got both the brain training & big brain academy.
The big brain academy i haven't done for ages , the first brain training i do now & again , but have to admit to doing the more brain training everyday
I don't think it's made alot of difference to me as i'm still just as scatty as ever
Has this been a five minute wonder with most poeple or do up try to keep going with it ?

When I first got the game I did it everyday, but the novelty has worn off, now I am lucky if I play it once a week.

We only bought ours on the last trip to WDW in Aug. We have brain age 1 and 2 and all three of us are still doing everyday. Can't say that i have noticed any difference though.

I bought mine about 6 weeks ago so I've not got bored with it yet. I do both Brain training and more brain training. I faithfully do it everyday and my brain age has got better as time goes on. I do feel though it has helped with the brain rot I have since having DS1 (I had 3 kids in less than 3 years, youngest turning 2 in Dec). I don't forget as much as I used to. Although DH gets really frustrated as I nearly always get a better brain age than him and has been devastated by a brain age of 66 even though he is 30! He just can't accept that I'm better at it than him.
Maybe its just because you get better at the puzzles as you practice and it gives you a bit of stimulation. I don't know.

i bought it, did it everyday for the first 3 weeks or so, til i unlocked all the training routines, and then i got a bit bored of it. havent done in a month or so. did get better at it as time went on, but dont really think it's made a huge difference. it gets boring pretty quickly

I can't stand the guilt when you turn it on after a while away and he looks at you reproachfully and says, "I haven't seen you for a while, Karen"
