I feel that my brain is not as sharp as it should be so I'm hoping I can help improve that w brain games.   I'm only 66 today

That is funny. I suspect that my game playing just before bedtime keeps me awake.

Hi Everyone My story goes back a long long time. It started out west when I first laid eyes on him a young crooked player who never seemed to lose. We played poker, 3 card monte but his really suspicious playing was black jack. That he could never lose and kept fleecing everyone he played made him a wanted man.  I knew someday our paths would cross. So one day in DeadWood  we were playing in the number 10 saloon and it happened .....we met. At first things were going relatively simple  I won quite a few times and then it happened I couldn't win if I put the cards in my own hand so another player called him out he took all the money and iou's and split town. I vowed that I would get back all the money he took from me. A group of us got together searching all the big towns Abilene, Santa Fe and Dodge only to find out he was run out of town and other groups were searching for him. This maniac needed to be captured.  Time passed   and the trail grew cold it was beginning to look like we were out of luck when I read something about a black jack dealer at a website  it was him the greedy thief  that I was searching for.  I signed up to play watching his every move he hadn't changed just got more people from allot more communities across the U.S. to fall into his trap.  I know I will never find him he could be operating anywhere  I can only hope that some day I am lucky enough to break even

Good day, bad day, in-between day. All good! Any day you have a few spare minutes to burn, might as well get in a game or two.

Sounds like a lot of you agree with @mlou58 that games can help distract us from our surroundings at least for time. Thanks so much to @sc19114831@suttonnh, @Dinata and  @ps81339067 for weighing in!

 

And here's another question for the group. 

Does gaming ever give you a sense of accomplishment?

It's a way of try to think of something other than what's going on. I like brain games and puzzles .

It transports me through time!  I decide to play a game or two at eight o'clock and the next thing I know it's a quarter after ten.  This might not be a good thing.

I have always enjoyed the games but only competing against myself.  I have had several severe head injuries and my neurologist encourages me to play these.  Depending on my stage of recovery depends what I'll take on.

Hello! Here's a question for the group: 

 

Do you play different games depending on whether you're having a good day or a bad day?
