Growing up I had this game called "MasterMind" that I often played with my Dad. It is a game of logic that at first frustrated me but as time went on, I learned through the power of deduction to break the "codes" my Dad set up for me. Sometimes, I even stumped him.
Logic games have always been a bit of fun for my mind. Do you play Luminosity? I have on occasion. Believe it or not though the one I hate the most is Soduko. Oh, I have bought a game magazine or two but they simply just drive me loopy and I get impatient working on them. My daughter, loves them!
As a child, I watched my Grandparents play different mind games. My Grandpa loved crossword puzzles. The harder the better but he could do them in nothing flat. He always mesmerized me when he did them.
My Grandma's games of choice were word seek and find puzzles. She had tons of magazines with these puzzles in them. She often took them on vacation with her. If I was around, she let me play the games with her. She would even buy me my own sometimes. I love them to this day and have a book in my purse.
