Enthusiastic agreement about playing with younger people! It's a great way to connect with my nieces and nephews. I prefer playing 'IRL' games with other people as opposed to computer games. Levels out the playing field.

 

I also think that playing with other people helps with staying sharp. It involves more than just the game. You've got to mind your social set of skills as well as pay attention to the game. Given that multi-tasking is something I've noticed slipping with age, this helps...

@CarmenmC98799 I love these suggestions! I'm going to go play a word game now. Have you tried Wander Words? https://games.aarp.org/games/wander-words

Hi Concierge! I saw you mentioned the staying sharp program. I tried some of those games and they were pretty awesome. Would be cool if those games could be integrated with the games section and see what kind of high scores could be attained. Would that be possible?

Don't know how it would be with everyone else, but I REALLY like Match 3 Games. If you havn't tried them and care to do so, just google something like "fun free match3 games" and you will certainly find some if interested. There are hundreds of them on the internet. I also enjoy BTD games.  BTD means "Bloons Tower Defense" and there are all kinds. I'm having some issues right now due to some "Log In" issues, but I watched my Grandson  play BTD5, 6 or 7 years ago and have been playing every since at least. You have to think !!!!!!

Regards, Dan

I play Wordament and word and hidden clues games to sharpen recall skills,and maintain grammar and English/Spanish skills. I also play Yahtzee,Monopoly,etc. for maintaining decision-making skills.The best challenges come from playing with young people between 12-30 years of age!
