Great game(s) for an 8 hour airplane flight.

I'm about to fly tomorrow and wanted a a few ideas for a/some great game(s) to play while I'm in the air. Any recommendations should keep in mind that I will not have the ability to connect to the net while I'm flying. I tend to prefer strategy and puzzles to real-time action.

I've already got Myst!

Hi Rangent,

Welcome to TA
There is a separate games discussion forum to post your question. But nvm,the mods will move your thread there soon.

Anyway, I think you should get a really really light puzzle game (definitely not like Myst ) if you want your iDevice to last 8hrs. In any case, sheepish is my favorite puzzle game. Toki Tori and the Bobby carrot series is also pretty good.

Defender Chronicles takes long time to finish it and it is good at battery life.
