Using your brain to solve challenge after challenge, whether it involves numbers, crosswords, and dungeons, is actually one of the most rewarding experiences in gaming. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Nintendo DS puzzle games of all time.
