List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Nintendo DS at some point.

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.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling puzzle games that were released for Nintendo DS. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future and Scribblenauts are included on this poll, along with many more.
