Easy Sudoku Games Stimulate the Brain

by Gail
(Denver, CO)

Brain exercises or games provide enormous cognitive benefits for seniors, as well as for all age groups, actually. Because I have elderly parents, I often worry about their risk of declining cognitive ability, reasoning, and rational skills.


I've always encouraged games and activities like crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, and so forth, but never really thought too much about math games because they can be quite difficult for some.

When a friend suggested easy Sudoku games, I had to find out more about them. I've never played that game before. It's a number puzzle of sorts. The easy versions provide grids of various sizes so that each column, row, or section of the puzzle contains the number 1 through 9 without being repeated.

After doing more research and playing a few Sudoku puzzles myself, I realized they were an excellent way to improve concentration and focus. You don't have to have specialized math skills.

With easy Sudoku games, some numbers are already provided in the grids, making it easier to solve the puzzles. I have to admit that I am now hooked on Sudoku, and I've taught my parents how to play the game as well.

I was pleased to find that many puzzle books now provide a variety of varying difficult levels of Sudoku, making it easier for them to work different areas of the brain for reasoning, rationale, concentration, and focus.

Easy Sudoku Games - I think it Improved My Mother's Mind
by: Kayla

I was amazed at the improved cognition levels of my mother's abilities after I started encouraging her to do puzzles of all kinds, including Sudoku, crossword puzzles, word searches, and anagrams.

Not only does she have fun doing them, but she has also noticed a difference in her mental acuity.

Easy Sudoku Games
by: Cienna

Easy Sudoku games are fun, but make sure that the level of difficulty matches your loved one's cognitive and reasoning abilities.

Some of them can be pretty tough. I bought my grandmother a book filled with easy Sudoku puzzles, and after a few slow starts, she got the hang of it and now does three or four of them every day.
