I don't get the newspaper every day, but I enjoy doing the Jumble when I do. Every night before going to bed I play games on my tablet until I'm sleepy. I play Spades, Hearts, Solitaire, 7 Words and Scrabble against the computer. I occasionally play Backgammon and Word Search on it, too. I also bring my tablet to the doctor's office and other appointments to entertain myself while waiting. I have these games on my smart phone, too, and I play them in restaurants and such while waiting for my friends to join me. I'm heavily into genealogy research, too. I research almost daily, and it keeps my mind ticking while searching for those elusive new clues! : )
I enjoy crossword puzzles as well as online solitaire. I too watch and play along with Jeopardy. Locally in the Washington DC TV viewing area, we have a high school quiz show, "It's Academic" on Saturday mornings which covers literature, history, art, mathematics and sciences.
I solve the Jumble and Cryptoquote daily. Occasionally, I do the crossword puzzle. And, I play both Solitaire and Mahjong online. I play Trivia Crack on my phone. Occasionally, I play HQ Trivia, but there's too much hipster clowning around, and they're not truthful about the questions being "progressively" harder. There's three simple questions, then one bizzare question that about half the players get wrong . . . and get eliminated, then there are eight questions of varying difficulty, but by then you're just a spectator. I also play along while watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune!
I do online games. I also love word search, Finding words on my game site. They give you clues and you put the letters where they belong. I play Bingo also. I read magazines and lots of emails. I do feel like the email keeps my mind going

I do like games, but I'm a big believer in sports - not only for your brain, but for providing other benefits as well.
I took up tennis in my late 40s, and it does a number of wonderful things: it's very social (have met a number of good friends through organized tennis); it keeps you moving; every point is a little different so you have to strategize the entire time you're playing (the brain part); it keeps you committed (you can't let down your partner by deciding it's "too cold" or you're "too tired").
I’ve played all the games on this website. Mah Jongg and Sudoku probably are the most mentally stimulating to me. Although I like Monkey Gems and helping BenBen the monkey fend off snakes, him and me make a pretty good team.
