What it is: Who new AARP – the American Association of Retired Persons has a section of games on its website? If you like fun brain-building games like Mahjongg, Solitaire, Backgammon, crosswords and sudoku, this site is a goldmine!
Brain Benefits: memory, auditory and visual processing, logic & reasoning, attention, processing speed
What I love: I love sites that let you find a ton of games in one spot! There are few things more frustrating than having to download 100 apps to switch back and forth between word search, cryptograms and jigsaw puzzles. AARP’s site lets you access all these sites in one place! And they go beyond word and memory games. There are sports games (e.g., golf, pool, baseball and mini golf), arcade games, card games and more.
What I’d change: I hate when sites require you to download Flash player.
