DS Fanboy poll: Where do you play?

We're in a poll mood today and were wondering where the majority of DS Fanboy readers like to play with their Nintendo handheld. Perhaps you are like us and play mostly in your own home, quietly sipping a cup of Early Grey as you scream at snaking bastards when playing Mario Kart DS over Wi-Fi. Or maybe you are a different breed, a rogue maverick who likes to game in the face of authority at the bus stop or at the library? Why not vote and let us know? If it's somewhere not included in the choices for the poll, leave a comment.

Where do you game?
I ride the train (or subway) a lot, so I play there
I play in the quiet comfort of my own home
On the bus, going to and from school
Only on Tuesday nights during Game Night with the DSF staff
Other (leave answer in comment)

Luckily, there are 4 people at my job who have DSes, so we play multiplayer Mariokart/Super Mario Bros/Starfox every day during our lunch's solid.

I mostly play at home, but I also take my DS everywhere so I can play at friend's / family's houses. Also, so I can play in the car on the way to their houses. It will be getting used a lot at the in-laws house this year. I'd rather rip my fingernails off with pliers than be at their house, so at least I'll have the DS to pass the time.

I voted other because I play at home and during slow times at work as well.
Although I have been known to play while waiting in line for stuff too.

The better question is where DON'T I play?

1. At home, pretty much anytime (but especially during dull NFL games).
2. At movie theatres, waiting on the show to start.
3. At work, during breaks or on my lunch hour.
4. On the airplane or on long car rides, when traveling. Obviously not when I'm driving, though!
5. Pretty much anytime I have a few spare minutes to pull the DS out and go.

The reason I love the DS is because I can take a bathroom break at work and head over to the bathroom stall for hours of fun. (Honestly, I probably spend about an hour a day playing the ds in the bathroom.

For awhile there was a wifi signal I could pick up in there. I was having some really great Wifi Tetris matchs until they protected it.

It's funny I am so used to playing the DS sitting on the toilet that if I want to beat a really hard level, like in Elite Beat Agent, I need to be on the toilet to be able to perform at my best.

Anyway, I'm sure there is others out there who do this. I acctually heard some radio DJ talking about playing the DS in the bathroom and it really fired me up.

I sometimes play at home; but I travel a lot, so I play an equal amount in the car. You see, I'm unable to drive, being below the age. So I play in the car, at home, or wherever we end up.

I play at home, mainly cause I work from here and often have little reason to go out. And I believe you mean "Earl" Grey, dear.

I tend to play at home only. I can't exactly play when driving or at work. I'm working full-time as part of my college degree, but I guess I would play between classes. The one place I definitely get a lot of DS action in is the airport because I have absolutely nothing to do in there except read a book and play my DS.

Mostly I play in my house, though when I leave the trusty DS comes with me.

With all due respect,

I don't like that poll, there should an "all of the above" choice in there...I play while waiting for the bus, on the bus, during class brakes, on the way back home, and at home it goes with me almost everywhere. I am pretty obssessed aren't I?

As I work from home (like most of the DS Fanboy staff, I'm assuming), I do most of DS playing here too. As well as at friends' houses and so on. It's always fun to get some DS local multiplayer action going on. Mario Kart, Tetris, Star Fox....
