Wanted: Brain Gamers

You heard that right.

[1]

Could just playing a game for 15 minutes a day keep you sharp? What if you treated it like an actual sweaty workout? You’d start with a warmup, get into a “workout”, and “cool down” when you’re done. After all, your brain is a muscle too.

The folks over at ThinkFun [2] are looking for people who’d be up to test this theory out. They’ll send you the games (one involves chocolate! [3]) and ask you to spend 15 minutes a day at play. Next, they’ll ask you for a little bit of feedback in your email.

Judging by how many of you enjoy ourĀ games section [4], we figure this might be the right group to ask. If you or a friend would be up for a little home gaming, fill out this survey [5] by next Wednesday, August 23.

Tell us if you try it out!
