Online Games that You Love!
There's a lot out there about mindful wellness and how important it is for your health. Keeping your mind sharp is a necessity and requires daily work. Play these online games to give your brain a workout and enjoy beating the computer or the person on the other end! One great resource to a variety of games is the AARP website. See below for other great options for games to keep your mind spry!
Card games are universally loved and a great time when getting together with your friends. Play some of your favorite games online with the AI or with other players at cardgames.io (to play against other people, make sure you select a game and then click multiplayer)!
A tile game that originated in China, Mahjong is a fantastic way to keep you thinking and on your toes. While the original game is different from the one most people play online, the matching aspect of the various symbols and marks can be a great time!

Chess is a game for all ages and skills! From beginners to grandmasters, you will find a good challenge at the website above. With the longest game possible being 5,949 moves, it's doubtful that you'll ever play the same game twice.

Scrabble is another classic game that you have likely played at some point in your life. For those of you have a strong grasp of the English language, Scrabble is a fantastic way to flex those muscles, but make sure you utilize the bonus tiles on the board as well! Play against live players on Pogo.com or use the link above to play against AI.
