Roger that JessicaB! They are pretty good with numbers. Unfortunately, its bogus numbers that they really seem to excel at. I'm like you on the words / numbers thing tho. I would rather sit down with a Sunday crossword than a sudoku. I do like number games but if I had my druthers, crosswords win every time.

I'm decent with numbers but words are my strong suit, so I naturally gravitate toward the word games. But the thing is, because I use words way more than I use numbers, I can 'feel' my brain 'stretching' more when I play word games. I'm guessing that feeling of stimulation is because I'm using my brain in a way I don't usually use it, whereas I use words all the time (talking, e-mail, reading, which is how I spend most of my leisure time). 

 

OK, fine, maybe I'll start playing Soduku!

They're baaaaaack! Hacker-1 and Hacker-2 running up impossible scores again. If you've ever played Scramble Words, you'll know what I'm talking about when you see these bogus scores. Have a look see!Bogus scores 2.png

I like word and math based games. Especially if you are running against the clock. Also like games that involve timing / speed / accuracy. Love a good challenge!

Regan C., one of the Behind the Leaderboard gamers, plays AARP games to help in her recovery process from a brain aneurysm. She tends to play several different games in a session, so she can give her brain a workout.

 

Gamers, do you prefer to play word or math games? Tell us which ones!

 

And you can read her story here:

That's great! Math was never my strong suit, but I could manage it just fine. It comes in handy when playing card and casino-style games!

I have always been at ease with numbers for as long as I can remember.

Hi, Gamers!

 

Do we have any card counters in our midst? For you BlackJack players, tell us about a time you played the real thing in a casino.

 

And don't forget that you can read all of our Behind the Leaderboard profiles here. Like you, they play games to keep their brains active and pass the time. And like you, they have lives beyond their screen time.
