My dad has had an iPad(1st generation) for about a year and a half now and is just starting to take advantage of a lot of the capabilities. He has discovered youtube and I believe he is attempting to teach himself how to fly an airplane, a couple of his close friends are pilots.

Does anyone have any fun games, perhaps puzzle games, that do not require quick reflexes or too much precision to play? He has MS so his fingers are not as delicate as they used to be. I'm wanting a game that is still complex enough to make it difficult but easy to play.

Thanks guys!

The iPad game Carcassonne is an awesome version of a great board game that can be played against the AI or other people, both locally or over the internet.

There's a game "Dungeon Solitaire", a simple fantasy card game that can get addictive (fair warning: I worked on this game). Similar to the original Solitaire, not every game can be beaten.

Zen Bound 2 is an iPhone/iPad classic, a unique puzzle game where you move and rotate a wooden object in 3D to wrap a rope around it, trying to cover a certain percentage of the object with rope. This one is slow paced, but might require some complicated movements that could be difficult (it uses pinch zooms/rotations and even system rotations to manipulate the objects).

Great suggestions, thanks everyone. I always seem to post in the wrong section so I'm going to "resolve" this thread one put it up under the apps section.

I don't know if there's an iPad version but I was thoroughly addicted to it when I got my first iPhone.
