CrosswordsOld fashioned they may seem, but modern day crosswords are about much more than just fitting letters into boxes. Crossword Puzzles are fun and exciting. Clues are given to form the words which fit into boxes on a grid. They can be straightforward and simple or cryptic and downright difficult. Quick crosswords, metapuzzles or quantum puzzles will all get the gray matter working. Whether you are a beginner or advanced level genius, a crossword puzzle is never far away. You can download a ton of apps designed specifically for crossword fanatics, or just turn the page of your local newspaper to find a quick quiz to digest during your coffee break.
SudokuIf numbers are your thing, this popular Japanese puzzle game is based on the logical placement of numbers. Despite what you may think, it doesn’t actually require any special math skills but will require some brain power and concentration. The goal of the puzzle is to fill in a 9×9 grid with digits so that each column, row, and 3×3 section contain the numbers between 1 to 9. At the beginning of the game, the 9×9 grid will have some of the squares filled in. Your job is to use logic to fill in the missing digits and complete the grid. Easy, right!
