DS Fanswag: Brain builder blowout

Are you feeling mentally down? Does calculating the cost of your groceries at your local supermarket taking you longer than usual? Well, we might just have something that can help you get mentally fit again. Whether you're 88 or 18 (sorry, if you're under 18 years of age or live outside the United States, you are not eligible), everyone can always use some extra mental exercises to help them get fit again.

What will you win? Well, that's simple. One grand prize winner will receive a copy of Brain Age 2 (valued at $20), Picross DS (valued at $20) and Brain Buster Puzzle Pak (valued at $20). With all those puzzle titles, you should be as mentally fit as a young Albert Einstein.

So, do your brain a favor and make a comment below. All we're asking is that you tell us the last time you were feeling mentally sluggish. Hey, we're all friends here, no need to feel embarrassed when you had some difficulty adding and subtracting with The Count.

Before you do that, though, make sure that you read the official rules before entering. The contest will be open from Wednesday October 10th, 2007 9:45am EST until Sunday October 14th, 2007 11:59PM EST.

21. Last time I felt sluggish? That was the other day when I did the "all you can eat pasta bowl" for lunch. Baaaaaad idea!

25. I was feeling mentally sluggish yesterday, after coming off a three day weekend. Some Sudoku in Brain Age 2 might be the answer to perk up the mind!

26. yeah, I'm at work and signing up for a contest...I'm pretty sure mentally sluggish would be a polite way of saying I'm feeling dumb today ;)

27. I feel sluggish, tired AND stupid.

28. Felt mentally sluggish yesterday midday, especially, when I tried to do my calculus homework.

29. Last time I felt mentally sluggish would be when I saw the updates for Sonic in SSBB! ;)

30. I'm feeling mentally sluggish right now, too. Time to study for a Calculus II exam - and I lost my book! Oh, boy.

31. Sluggish brain? After a day of staring at excel spreadsheets, building boxes, and dealing with micro management my brain is pretty worn. Also playing DS till 2am might have a minute influence on this problem but nothing is yet scientifically proven on that one!

32. My toddler woke me up early this morning, saying "ga" and grabbing my face. I was soooo sleep deprived from taking care of him last night (he kept waking up hungry!) I couldn't believe he was wide awake at 7:00 a.m.! Needless to say, it took my brain until after breakfast to fully kick in :)

33. The last time I felt sluggish was probably yesterday morning, in my Spanish class, when my professor got mad that I kept accidentally answering in French. :[

34. this morning... ugh. every morning.

Posted at 11:42AM on Oct 10th 2007 by Bukinara

35. i was sluggish today in the morning cause i had to go to class 5 minutes after waking up and it was math class so for like the first hour, i just sat there until i got a hold of my surroundings

36. Last time I felt mentally sluggish was the other day...I stayed up waaay to late the night before and found myself daydreaming all day long not able to focus on a single thing at work. Ugh.

37. Monday. Our 17 month old had been sick since Thursday and sleep apparently wasn't one of things he felt like doing. He kept waking up every 15 minutes or so. My daughter spent the night with my parents Saturday but came home Sunday with a case of the up chucking. Yay. Was too tired Monday to think. Thinking would hurt.

38. Mentally sluggish?! Always!

Posted at 11:54AM on Oct 10th 2007 by Chris

39. Just mentally sluggish at work.

Posted at 11:55AM on Oct 10th 2007 by Chris

40. Like so many others, right now I'm in my 300-level software engineering class, and feeling pretty sluggish because it's at freaking 8 in the morning. I waited several semesters just to see if it would be offered at a different time, but no... =_=

At least Picross DS would give me something to get my brain in gear on the bus :D
