The free online games above do not require the Adobe Flash Player or any other plug in. The games should work automatically in your browser.
Examples of popular browsers include Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Opera. These games work best on desktop computers. Some of them run on tablets, too.
To launch a game, such as Wordmeister Scrabble, first go to the game page. You can reach a game's page by clicking the game image or link in the game list above. Or, search for your favorite game using the site search page. The search tool is also available at the top of every page of this site.
Once you're on the game page, click the Small, Medium, or Large button under the picture of the game, or the HTML5/Mobile link (as shown in the following images). This opens the game in a pop-up window.
In general, these games do not work well on smart phones. Many of the games appear too small on a phone screen. So play them on your desktop computer if you can.
NOTE ABOUT THE ADS: These online games are free to play, so most of them are supported by advertising. This revenue goes mostly to the game developer and the game distribution company. Memory-Improvement-Tips.com also receives a share. Thanks for your patience and support!
You'll also find printable Balance Quest puzzles, a unique type of math puzzle invented by my friend Whit McMahan.
For those who love sudoku, there are hundreds of printable sudoku puzzles here, including solutions. There's even a free, detailed three-part lesson on How to Play Sudoku and Win, written for this site by sudoku guru Ken Rush.
Free free to print out and solve any of these puzzles whenever you like. Solving puzzles on paper is yet another useful way to help keep your brain sharp.
Some of the free online brain games have both an HTML5 version and an Adobe Flash version. You may see this on the game page. Simply choose which version you want to play. The majority of the Flash games no longer work, however. Support for Adobe Flash was removed from the web by the major browser companies at the beginning of 2021.
A few of the free Flash games can still be played. The Flash games marked as "Ruffle Flash" are currently playable. Following is a list of the games that have an Adoble Flash version compatible with the Ruffle Flash player. These are playable in your browser: 3D Logic • Air Typer • Brain Follow • Glitter Memory • Lightning Librarian • Mario Memory • QuickPic Memory • School Supply SNAP • Spider Solitaire • Tom & Jerry Snack.
Adobe Flash games are old technology. In 2020 they were phased out by the major tech companies. As mentioned above, the new Ruffle Flash player allows some of the old Flash games to be played. You don't need to download the Ruffle Flash player, though. The player is embedded on my site and runs the compatible Flash games automatically.
I hope you enjoy the free online brain games on this site. Play them often to give your brain a boost. There's no logging in, no registering. Just go to the game page and start playing!
