We all have some monotony on our lives at some points. The word “game” during this time fills us with an undefined joy. Especially the kids love to play games.
Games are not only for kids, but for adults as well. They are a mode of bringing some creativity and recreation in our blank minds. Life turns out to be boring many a times. Then why don’t you opt for an interesting game?

Games can be played inside as well. And, the best part, games can be healthy too.

Fun brain games for adults
Are you an adult? Want to have a break from your busy life? You are not all alone. With increasing age, we have some responsibilities on our heads and we need to fulfil our duties.
But a small break can refresh your exhausted mind. Or maybe in your leisure time you can play some of the brain games to increase your brain capacity. Let me tell you a few ones:
- Colour testing
You must be wondering why I have put the wrong names in wrong colours. But, it is not like that. Here is a challenge for you.
Say out loud the colour names, but do not read the written ones. For example, the first line reads red blue black red. But you do not have to read. You have to speak out their colour name, which is pink green yellow black.
Can you do it? How fast can you do it? Try! And challenge others as well!
- Reverse ABCD:
This is a very simple yet challenging task. The task is that you have to speak out the alphabets in the reverse order. That means, go from Z to A. This long journey is super funny and entertaining.
Also, it shows how much your brain can distinguish between the patterns of your memory.
Once, in an event, I made the ladies who were school teachers, to do this task. They hardly could do it. Not because they were not capable of doing it, but because they had their high stress levels due to which they were not able to focus or concentrate. Are you able to do it?
This game could also be included in some kitty parties or festival family gatherings. Or you may try this when you are unable to sleep at night. A mental exercise would definitely relax you and lower down your stress levels!
- Counting the alphabets!
You must be having some books or magazines by your side. Open any one of it. All we require for this task is a paragraph to read and observe. Are you able to find one?
Now, decide a specific alphabet in your mind. You have to count the number of times your decided alphabet is occurring in that paragraph.
You can also perform this game with your colleagues or friends. Challenge them up and see who wins! The winner is definitely possesses sharp brain!
- Optical illusion game!
Here is a fun task for you. Let us check your observational power. Are you ready?
What do you see in the image? The old aged people or something else?
Do not stare at the centre. Either stare at the orange star at the side or look anywhere but away from the main image screen. Now tell us, in which direction is the central pattern moving? And in which direction is the rest of the pattern moving?
Is this an image or something written? Focus!
How many animals can you observe?
