Yes, laughter is nice but unfortunately, I don't find many things that are too funny nowadays.  Be glad that you can.

CHESS AND CROSSWORDS ON A HOYLE GAMES DOWNLOAD.

I ALSO USED TO PLAY BRIDGE AND HAND AND FOOT CANASTA AT THE 2 SENIOR CENTERS

IN MY AREA.

I BELIEVE THAT LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE FOR THE BRAIN AND THE WHOLE

BODY - TELL SOME A JOKE TODAY AND LAUGH AT YOUR OWN JOKE. IT WILL DO WONDERS FOR YOU.

I enjoy Scramble with Friends, or Boggle, 7 Words, Jumble and word searches.I also play a mean game of Solitaire. I read a lot of non fiction, mainly medieval history, and knit and crochet.I enjoy the articles in the AARP magazines and online, and play some of the AARP brain games as well. Keeping the brain and body occupied!

We are never too old to learn new things or brush up on "old" things that our grandparents and great-grandparents knew.  I am someone who is forever curious and always looking for answers.  When I grew up, there were no computers, no cell phones, if you wanted to look something up, you went to the library and searched through books, sometimes for hours at a time.  If you wanted to make a phone call while out and about, you had to locate a phone booth.  Young people now, way too spoiled and that is not just the fault of technology, but the fault of the parents for giving them too much and not forcing them to work for a little knowledge they way the old folks had to when they were young.  Learning how to make soap and buttons, syrups, growing your own vegetables, learning about medical problems and ways to solve them and stay well, learning how to fix things in your own home instead of hiring a plumber at outrageous prices and so many other things ......all good.  We as humans, waste a great deal of time doing little to nothing and could be doing so much more than sitting in front of computers playing games and yakking on the phone.  How about taking some of that time and starting a letter writing campaign to our President to plead for harsher laws for violent criminals, or longer sentences and huge fines for people who abuse animals, make it a serious crime to run a puppy mill,  ask for lower insurance rates for senior citizens, higher Social Security payments to deserving senior citizens and dump the young welfare bums off of the rolls who keep having illegitimate kids and are getting paid for it with taxpayer's money!!

Yes, I play a few games, I read a few books, and I read the news article by article every single day and the majority of the time, it makes me sick and furious.  It's disgusting the amount of sick, twisted, mentally deficient people who we are surrounded with whether you realize it or not and something, more....should be done about it.   There's more to life than "us" and our games and books.

I love playing solitaire, bubble witch, and scrabble.  I also love taking free courses on Coursera, I have learned a lot lately about our microbiome! Also love to learn new skills and enjoy doing crafts.  I took a class from the community college to learn how to make soaps.  Then another to learn how to can jam and jellies.  There is a meetup group which learns one "old" or "forgotten" skill each month, like how to make buttons, or an herbal syrup for coughs. People may not understand the Preppers, but the prepper websites have lots of information on how to do things the old way.  I don't have a lot of time to do all the things I want to do and work full time but I do find lots to keep my mind working when I want to. I love all the suggestions everyone has submitted.

I love to play Scrabble too and have no one local to play with. I play on Facebook with 'random opponents'. It is not a back and forth way to play. I often have to wait for my opponent to come back online, so I usually keep 4 or 5 games going at once. But it meets my need!

I started playing Checkers on POGO about 10 years ago.  When you are playing with other people you can also chat back and forth.  What I found is that you end up playing with some real jerks sometimes and they write some really nasty comments.  The Checkers board in my opinion is very small and if you have any problems with your eyes as I do, you're kind of straining to see the darn thing.  I started playing Checkers with other people on MSN Games.  It's free and doesn't seem to have the connection problems that POGO has.  I haven't been back to POGO since.

I like the online game site Pogo.  It's free, as long as you don't mind ads, or you can join Club Pogo for a fee & play ad-free.  They have Scrabble, Mahjong, Bingo, Bejeweled, Crosswords, Slots, Hidden objects, Word Whomp, Tumble Bees & so much more.
