You might already be using the voice-activated Amazon Alexa, or thinking about using her, to record shopping lists, remind you to take medication and other useful tasks. But did you know that you can play games with her that can actually improve your brain health? Here are 3 games that can help seniors in this area.
- Where In The World. This fascinating geography trivia quiz will teach you more about the world around you and remind you of some of the facts you learned in school. The questions include subject matter like names of countries, capital cities, and the languages spoken in a specific locale. It will be a bit like going back to school but well worth it to improve cognitive skills!
- Memory Match. You probably played this when you were young and might still play it with the grandkids. Well, you don't need cards or an opponent to play it with Alexa. You have to actually imagine the cards in a 3 x 4 grid. You tell Alexa the location of the cards you want to 'flip', for example 'row 2, column 3' and she tells you what is on it.
- The Wayne Investigation. This game will bring out your inner sleuth. Your goal is to solve the mystery of who killed Thomas and Martha Wayne, Bruce Wayne's parents. You will search around Gotham city for clues. While you poke around, you will make choices to help you solve the crime. Maybe when you find the killer, you can write the good folks at DC Comics.
These are just a few of the fun and entertaining brain games you can play with Alexa. Check here for more information about her useful functions.
