The more active the mind, the younger it stays. I don’t think that’s an actual quote from anyone so I’m claiming it. (Editor’s Note: Google says “No results found for “The more active the mind, the younger it stays”.” as of publication!) Keeping a sharp mind is done by challenging it. Reading books is a good way to keep an active mind, however, playing games that stretch it a little and games with time limits will help keep the mind on its mental toes.


Unblock Me FREE


Unblock Me is one of my personal favorites. The game is simple in theory but hard after a couple of levels. The goal is to move the red block out of the opening by shifting around the other blocks. Getting the red block out of the playing field takes a lot more planning than most people are used to doing. A helpful hint is to walk away from the game for a little bit when stumped. A fresh eye can make all the difference in solving the puzzle.

Chess Free


Chess is a highly complex game. To say mastering the game of chess is hard would be an extreme understatement. After learning the basic movements of the pieces, chess is all about strategy and thinking ahead. Always planning what the opponent will do next and the retaliation will be.

Alchemy


Starting with nature’s four elements, mix and match them to create the 380 possible combinations. Sure Alchemy starts out pretty easy. Having combinations like water and earth to make mud. Or air and earth to make dust. once the easy combos are made, it takes a lot of brain power to make combinations. Start mixing previously combined elements to make something totally different just like a medieval alchemist.

Reversi Free


Reversi Free was a game I tried because I was looking for something a little bit different. The idea of the game is to get as many of the discs to be one color. While making attempts to flip the discs, the computer is doing the same thing. Reversi Free is a turn based strategy game with the ability to really frustrate anyone who plays it. Just as the discs seem to turning as planned, the computer has a good combo and really turns the table in its favor.

Memory Trainer


Memory Trainer is like the game Concentration on steroids. Different brain teasers are given ranging from matching items to timed reaction tests. Memory Trainer works on different parts of the memory system; spatial memory, focus, concentration and others are put to the test. Later levels use many of the same games as earlier levels. However, challenges are added to increase the difficulty and stretch the brain muscle a little more.
