New: 5 Fun "Brain" Games on SparkPeople

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Physical exercise, good nutrition, social connection, and mental stimulation all help ensure that your brain remains sharp and agile, no matter what your age. We've partnered with Happy Neuron to bring you 5 interactive games that you can play here at SparkPeople to help keep your mind sharp! As incentive, you can earn 3 SparkPoints (max 3 points/day) for playing a Brain Game—just look for the "Get SparkPoints" button below the game screen when you've finished.

Click here to check out the games, which are located in the Wellness section (under the Healthy Lifestyle Tab).

We hope you enjoy this new feature!

    Hi, I have a freind who is coming to this site as well and she told me about the brain games but I cannot find where they are. I looked under the wellness section but I could not find them.
Could you help me please?

    Where have the Brain Games gone?

I looked forward to challenging myself every morning but they seem to have vanished after only a couple of weeks. Are they going to return?

    Actually, I am finding all of these new spark domains (recipes, blogs, daily spark, location specific, etc. are just becoming unnecessairly complex and unmanagable. It would sure be more convenient to have one single home page to log on to and be able to navigate to everything from. It seems as though in some cases you can do that (like adding a link to sparkrecipes in my customized side bar) but in other cases (like the SP expert blogs and the daily spark site, it seems to require browsing to a different site and logging on again. I either ened up with aq dozen browser windows open or get totally lost trying to back up to the site/paqe I came from.

Ooops, sorry, case in point. I meant to post my comment to another blog entry, but since I had to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to get to the comment window, it got posted to what happened to be the last blog on this page.l

    I was delighted to find this addition to SparkFun! Realizing the importance of fun for the brain to stimulate and make new neurons as I age, I have been tracking as another goal, the number of times I play games throughout the week! You guys just made my day by emphasizing the importance in this way!!!

  The games are a great idea and I appreciate the chance to increase my mental fitness as well as my physical fitness on Spark, but it is rather frustrating that the points are not being awarded

    Love it, I've played the last couple of days, but I don't have the "Get SparkPoints" button anywhere on the page. The only thing I see are the Restart, Results, Compare, and Comments buttons. I've looked everywhere and yes I've successfully completed the game(s).

I'm not too concerned though as I know this is a new feature and there may be some bugs that need to be worked out. I'll just keep trying and hopefully I'll see the elusive sparkpoints button! =)

    Yup, I saw them last night ... at an hour when I decided I was definitely NOT very awake, so will play them when I at least have a chance (lol) ... was thinking of starting a little mini-challenge on my team once in a while -- got munchies? play a brain game instead!
