Give your brain a workout on the type of brainteasers that challenge the best solvers at the World Puzzle Championships. They're tough, but fun, and the feeling of satisfaction you get when you succeed is simply unbeatable. Some of the puzzles are oldies but goodies, like battleships--and its many variants--where you search for a fleet hidden within a grid. In "Eminent Domain," try to determine which blanks cells are owned by the numbered ones. For "Hex Loops," locate a path that travels through adjacent hexagons: the trick is, it has to end where it started, and the lines can't touch or cross. From Snaky Tiles to Spiral Galaxies, these Mensa-level conundrums will get your mind in shape.

The Benefits of Doing Brain Teasers

It's healthy!

A recent study has shown that doing brain teasers actually helps to slow mental decline. To read more:

Short Men­tal Work­outs May Slow Decline of Aging Minds.

"Ten ses­sions of exer­cises to boost rea­son­ing skills, mem­ory and men­tal pro­cess­ing speed staved off men­tal decline in middle-aged and elderly peo­ple in the first defin­i­tive study to show that hon­ing intel­lec­tual skills can bol­ster the mind in the same way that phys­i­cal exer­cise pro­tects and strength­ens the body. The researchers also showed that the ben­e­fits of the brain exer­cises extended well beyond the spe­cific skills the vol­un­teers learned."
