    Yeah the chess is ok on that, but so easy it's hardly worth playing. I like a game I can spend a long time over, so wi fi isn't too much of an issue for me.

    That said - wi fi scrabble would be great

    What's that chess game for the computer - Chess Grandmaster? Someone should be able to port an older version of that game to the DS, because that is probably harder than clubhouse games...
    And yeah, Scrabble would be cool.

    Scrabble seems like such an obvious choice for the DS - I wonder if there are plans to make it.

    I wouldn't have the technical know how for a port - but I would like a challenge.

    Chessmaster was one of the great chess games, and yet no DS version?

    There's a DSchess homebrew that I am going to try out now, you can find it in GBAtemp's homebrew database thread...But it does not seem like its supported anymore (the author hasn't made an update for many months). I think the source is released so someone can continue it...

    [EDIT]DS chess is pretty cool. No wifi or anything like that sadly, but the computer isn't easy. It has a few bugs (like, it said I was in check when there was no way I was, and wouldn't let me move anything because of it. I had to start a new game). There's no two-player hotseat play, but the touchscreen works perfectly.
    Its a good chess game, it just has no multiplayer (I would think that hotseat would be easy to implement). All it would take is someone to add that stuff in (and they should!).
    There's adustable AI difficulty as well, yay.
