8. Mental Fitness > 67. Play Board Games

Play Board Games

Increase knowledge and hone a wide range of mental skills, painlessly and effectively, by exploring the fast-growing world of modern board gaming.

Maybe you think you know about board games, but if you’re thinking of that Christmas present from your uncle with the pictures from your favorite cartoon on it that you had as a kid, stop right now. This is not your mom’s Monopoly; board games are enjoying a worldwide renaissance in recent years, emerging in an ever-increasing array of sophistication, complexity, and ingenuity. In Germany, the nexus of modern “designer gaming,” board gaming is so popular that a “game of the year” prize, the Spiel des Jahres, is awarded with great public interest. People everywhere and of all ages are getting hip to the fun, challenge, satisfaction, and intellectual development available for the taking by sitting down at a game table.
