The Lumosity Thread
« on: February 07, 2016, 02:55:34 PM »
Do you guys play Lumosity?

It's a series of games designed to exercise our brains. I like to compete with people and thought some of you guys would like to get in on it. I started with the iPhone app, and that's still my favorite way to play.

I recommend it! Post some scores?
Some of my good ones are...
Ebb and Flow(leaves) - 123
Trouble Brewing - 58 orders
Lost in Migration - 63 flocks
Disillusion - 96 tiles
Color Match - 74 cars
Train of Thought - 47 trains

Lumosity and other similar brain training games provoke instant skepticism. Not saying that they are inherently bad, but I would recommend puzzle games / games which make you think by better designers.

If you really want to work your brain hard in a rich, generous and rewarding world, play The Witness instead.

You can get it on Steam, a lot of eliters have been playing / thoroughly enjoying it over the past few weeks.

I've also heard that "Snakebird" is another great, challenging puzzle game which I'm looking at getting Next.

I would recommend playing social puzzle games like chess because they do exactly the same thing (perhaps even better) for your brain but they also allow you to connect with other people while doing it (knobbing two birds with one connie).

When I was younger I totally loved the Myst series and Zork: Nemesis.

Word Karl.

You should definitely check out The Witness Karl, if you were a Myst fan!
