I'd give a Brain Trainer a try, what the heck. I love doing the trivia challenge every day since even if my score isn't the greatest I am always learning something new. Any time you can add to your knowledge and retain all that information is a good thing. I pass on my little bits of knowledge to my son as random health info which he then pass along to his friends. Bring on the Brain Trainer since its a muscle that needs to be worked daily too. emoticon

I don't have great success with the trivia every day, but I am game for this one!

Go beyond success...
be significant.

I vote a big YES to this suggestion! And you should earn 5 - 10 points for doing it daily as well!

Great Idea!!! It would also be great to have questions beginning from kindergarten level up to graduate level.

I get mental blocks sometimes with simple questions such as "1x1" or "What are the primary colors?". I guess we're just so used to dealing with more complicated problems at home or at work that we tend to forget the basics.

I hope to see this feature soon.

Take care everyone. Have a great week!

There are already so many daily challenges on the SparkPoints page that I hesitate to suggest another one.
However, would it be possible to put in a wee brain trainer, along the lines of the Trivia questions.
Spark Points concentrates on Nutrition and Fitness but I think that fitness of the brain ( see is also important - especially for Seniors and retired folk.
Just a suggestion - I'd be interested to hear other views.
