Flash Games Status Update

OVERALL STATUS (9/20/18): The Flash-based brain games like Scrabble Sprint are still working. As of today, I was able to open them in the latest versions of Google Chrome, Firefox Quantum, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer on PC. On a Mac, I was able to open them in Google Chrome but not in Safari.

*GOOGLE CHROME (9/20/18): As of version 69 of Google Chrome, to play the Flash games you must re-allow the Adobe Flash player every time you close and re-open the browser. The "always allow" feature is gone.

The screen image above shows how to quickly re-allow Adobe Flash for my site in Google Chrome.

This is a true story about life after epilepsy and two brain surgeries, submitted by a visitor named Pam.

New HTML5-Based Brain Games

I've added an entirely new type of game category to my site. HTML5 games!

Why is this exciting, you ask? Well, Flash-based games are on the decline. It's hard to get them to run in some browsers. HTML5-based games run in any browser and are the wave of the future.

HTML5 is a game format that does not require any browser plug-in to run. These games don't need the Adobe Flash Player plug-in, for example.

Also, these games work great on mobile devices including tablets and even phones. That's not the case with Flash-based games.

Check out the new HTML5 games when you have a chance. They should run in your browser right away and without the need to install any plug-ins.

You can find a link to the HTML5 games section in the right column of every page. It's also in the FREE BRAIN GAMES pull-down menu at the top of the site.

I'll be adding many more HTML5-based brain games in the future. Enjoy!

FYI: Games Links Are Being Worked On

Hi Everyone. As you may have noticed, the game links on my site have been changing.

The old Small, Medium, and Large links have disappeared. You may now see a Play Game link and a PLAY GAME button.

I'll keep the new PLAY GAME button, too, for those who prefer to use that.

I had to take down the Small, Medium, and Large links due to technical issues. It will take me several days to put them all back the way they were.

Please bear with me. I'll need to update the code on hundreds of page, and this takes awhile Smilie

If you'd like to see what this update will look like when done, please see the Majhong Solitaire, Bubble Hit, or Scrabble Sprint games. I've already converted those.

This last Thanksgiving I knew I'd have to make a toast before the meal. To make sure I had a great toast to give, and that I delivered it perfectly, I memorized it the day before.

You can do this, too. Public speaking is my least favorite thing, but I managed to give a flawless toast in front of the group.

Check out my latest article, How to Memorize a Toast for memorization tricks that can help you deliver an awesome toast at your next event.

Play Working Memory Card Games to Boost Reading, Math Skills

working memory
Have trouble with math or reading comprehension? Can't seem to finish the projects you start? Try playing working memory card games.

I've just added a page that explains how to play three solitaire card games that strengthen your working memory. These are offline games, so you don't need a computer to play them.

Just keep a deck of regular playing cards or Blink cards handy. To strengthen your working memory, play games like "Number, Color, Suit" and "Plus One, Minus One" a few minutes each day.

I learned of these games through the work of a cognitive training expert. You might benefit from playing them, especially if you (or your kids) struggle with tasks that rely heavily on working memory, such as reading, math, and project planning.

How I Memorized Darth Vader Quotes for Halloween

darth vader
I doubled my enjoyment of Halloween this year by not only dressing up in costume, but memorizing the famous lines of my costumed character, Darth Vader. It was a blast!

Take trick-or-treating or Halloween parties to the next level by memorizing your character's lines. As I explain in my latest article, memory techniques make this easy to do.

Don't just look the part. Blow everyone away by quoting your characters actual lines. How much fun, and how unexpected, to say, "You have failed me for the last time, Admiral" rather than just looking the part.

To learn how you can memorize quotes for Halloween (or any occasion), check out my latest article by clicking the link below.

Flowers Mahjong - Free Online Brain Game

Flowers Mahjong
Mahjong lovers, I've got another one for you. It's Flowers Mahjong, the latest free online brain game I've added to Memory-Improvement-Tips.com.

Flowers Mahjong is a mahjong tile game. But it works a bit differently than the typical mahjong game.

In this game, a tile is playable only if two adjacent sides are free. That's in contrast to regular mahjong, where a tile is free if the left side or right side is unobstructed.

So this is a nice change from the usual. I find this game relaxing and challenging at the same time. I hope you like it.

Mahjong games like Flowers Mahjong train important brain skills including attention, short-term memory, and mental flexibility.

Like all the brain games on my site, this online game is free to play anytime. No logging in, no registering. Just go to the game page and start playing.

Solutions Added for Printable Bible Word Searches

word search
By popular demand, I've added solution pages for the free printable Bible word searches.

Many people enjoy the challenge of solving word search puzzles. On my site you'll find free printable word searches in a number of categories, including Bible word searches.

Previously, though, I didn't have answer pages for the Bible word searches, which a few people found inconvenient.

This was especially true for those who publish my word searches in magazines, newsletters, or church bulletins (a free practice, which I allow). Publications are often expected to provide the answers in the next issue.

Well, this should now be less of a problem. To view the list of answer pages, simply scroll down the Bible word searches page to the new "Solutions" section. The solutions can be printed out free just like the word searches themselves.
