      wow so many pandering people - dont beg for it, its a random draw and one person will get it. i have entered even though i have a ds lite and 3ds, but wont say no to a free one :) would have been wise to at least include a 3ds game with it instead of 2 cheap ds titles, but again its free.

      My little brother would love this, he can't play the new pokemon game on his old ds! And brain training wouldn't be that bad for me.
