Thanks so much for sharing some of your favorite games with us, @cn8777! These are great recommendations. I love a game like Bubble Utopia that can put you in a good mood. 

 

Here's the link to the Staying Sharp program for anyone else who'd like to try it out!

It's the  the  Big Gamer again, just found a bunch of good games on AARP staying Sharp and I already found some favorites- Secret Files- all about memory and so challenging.

 Bubble Utopia is a real favorite, will put you in a Good Mood, especially if you play your beautiful music!

 Path finder- get those pipes in order so you can flow better- seems like the path in Life.

 Think Memory, now that's a challenge for me as well.

Split words seems like putting words together can be challenging, just like your day, split and then repaired.

Another one- basketball anyone? Think focus- ha,ha,ha first time I tried it, I was running with it and then oh, darn, concentrate,  imagine yourself actually doing it and then when it happens- I'm doing it,yes, you feel Awesome!

Hurray for change- yes, life changes, go thru hoops in life but it's stepping stones and remember your feet are roots to the ground, less tripping.

Wow! It's so great that you can stick a theme. I feel like I'm just trying to make any word I can. I need to bone up on my words with "x's" A few of the other gamers in this thread also like Word Wipe. Have you tried that one yet?

Hi there - I love playing Outspell to wake up in the mornings. So far I haven't branched out to playing anyone except the computer. I often challenge myself to do all theme words like animal, or romance related words on the board.

I LOVE Outspell. It's such a fun game. I keep learning new words too like "Qi" and "Qats." You have to memorize those Q words that don't have a "u" in them to make the game a little easier. Smiley Happy

 

What have you named the cartoon players?

I used to play Mahjoong until Outspell was introduced and now I am addicted to it.  I have named the three cartoon players and I love playing against them.  At 80, I want to keep my mind working and I find that Outspell gives me the opportunity to learn new words and sometimes I take a chance with adding letters and it turns out to be a word.  Great game AARP.

I'm loving all of your stories about why you started playing games. 

 

@sneekycheeky I just played my first game of Word Wipe. It was harder than I expected. I only made it to level 3. I need more practice! How far have you gotten?

 

@2Papa A wager on games sounds like so much. Adds a little extra excitement to the games.

I'm really enjoying to learn why people play AARP games and what's their favorites. I've been playing for years but can't really remember how I got into it.

@Dinata I believe that's how I discovered the AARP games too. It was just an article, whether the magazine or the Web site I cannot be sure, and it got me thinking that it might be nice to add to my crossword regimen. I find the New York Times crosswords just a little too frustrating, to be honest!! Maybe I should challenge myself a little more.......

Now I want to know what those wagers are, @2Papa!! I'm getting good enough at Outspell that I just might propose a chores wager and get out of dishes every so often......
