Welcome to Brain Game Product Reviews
In this blog you will find games, books, and other resources, most of which are divided into logical left brain exercises and more whimsical, creative right brain exercises. Others defy such easy categorization, but all are meant to help older adults learn about products that will help them keep their minds active. And as I frequently point out, that often means changing or adapting the rules of the game. My goal is to help you have fun learning, because relaxed learners learn more. Innovation always comes from maintaining a playful mind.
Enjoy and share.

Q-bitz is another Mindware game that physically bears a resemblance to two of the block products we mentioned in the previous blog, ArtBlocks™ and Nuevo. Like them, the basic element of the game is a wooden frame containing cubes, each … Continue reading
One relatively recent area of brain research I find fascinating is the connection of movement to learning. For example, “A report in the journal ‘Applied Cognitive Psychology’ demonstrated that volunteers who doodled during a dull verbal message were 29 percent … Continue reading
