Upon checking it at the party, each of us were given a charm bracelet and we recieved a charm after completing each station and trying out a different game. Below is the completed bracelet.

I had never played a Nintendo DS before and actually had a LOT of fun doing so. My favorite was Mario Kart and playing against the different girls. It took me awhile to do okay on it, but eventually I managed to finish in 2nd place for one game. I was racing that fake kart for dear life and was hurting my thumbs in the process though, but it was worth it. I also embarrased myself at Guitar Hero, but again it was still a lot of fun. Raphael would enjoy that game more since he alerady loves it for the Wii.
With each new game played I started wanting a console for myself and was thinking if I could afford the $125 price tag and if so what color I'd get it in, lol. Alas, I lucked out because we were each given our own DS Lite system and the game brain age before we left. Score! I've since been bidding on eBay for Mario Kart, Guitar Hero and other games since. Should be fun for when I travel.
