Brain Games come in many forms., as we have pointed throughout this book. Each game form is designed to interact with your brain in its unique way. The crossword puzzle is fashioned to get you to open your mind to various suggestions. Rather than using the right or the left side of the brain, the Brain Games use tactics to inspire both sides of the brain. You can enjoy Brain Games most times, but the problems crossword puzzles throw up at times can be frustrating to some people.
Since many people want to avoid problems, thus Brain Games encourage you to face the problems head on and to look at all sides of the problem so that you can find ways to solve it.
To help you understand Brain Games we can review a few types of mind busters to see how well you do. In the article, you will have answers, but we encourage you to avoid peeking.
Rather, try to solve the puzzle on your own.

The puzzle has a statement unrevealed. Look at the puzzle from the ‘T’ in the center of the puzzle. Work diagonally, then from left to the right of the puzzle until you see the “O’ at the left of the puzzle. Then move right up to the B. This is one of the easier puzzles, yet the point is driven home with the example. The answer is “good boys.” Now, look at the puzzle closer and see if you can create new vocabulary. We can work together. Sea – God – Good -Boys – so – cot – said – do – woo- to – sot – Dias’ (Spanish ; 10) doc – tow – tog – toy – cod – boys
As you can see, you can finish these puzzles and expand on them to build your vocabulary and observational skills. The best way to build a vocabulary from the puzzle is to start at the bottom. If you see some word right off, then start with the word you see and work bottom, diagonally, up, down, right, left until you build a new vocabulary from the puzzle.

Like the first puzzle start in the center and work diagonally, right, left, and to you see what the puzzle is saying. The answer is “mice don’t really bite.” Once you solve the puzzle start building your vocabulary. Relay – mice – red – way – tot – really – bite – do – lea – eat – so – boa – ice – saw – lot –
