Memory games to boost your brain…  | November 9, 2021

The problem I had writing this article was that I was having too much fun! I kept on getting detained playing games, but it was worth it. Some I did o.k. on, others I flunked miserably. They’re fun, they’re challenging, and I think you’ll really like them.

  1. I use ‘brain’ games with my students who have educational needs. It is excellent for dyslexia, processing issues and other challenges a quarter of the population have! The bonus is… they are fun to do. We also like the games that use words and vocabulary so we started a league and make it more competitive. The children love it!

  3. Thanks so much for this link! I do crosswords and Sudoko daily, but this gives me new challenges and some more fun, instead of what’s beginning to feel like a daily “must do” to check off my list. 🙂

  7. Im a huge video gamer! Been playing online games since the wheel was invented! Okay well maybe not that far back…. but definitely as far back as the internet! Made me better at resource allocation and efficiency, saving, budgeting, math in general…. even stock trading! Many of the games I play involve thousands of other players and a ton of teamwork and group communication! Love my gaming, always have since I was very young! Thanks again for all you do Phyllis! 😀

  8. I don’t think I could do it. Don’t have the attention span, or the memory to play with thousands.

    I even turned down a prestigious international advocacy opportunity because I couldn’t picture working with people all across the globe.

    Maybe that’s why I’ve been a freelancer for 35 years! (Doesn’t play well with others?)
