There are a lot of games that exercise different mental skills that will help you boost your brain power. Also, a lot of studies have shown that adults who engage in mentally stimulating activities are 63% less likely to develop dementia than those who rarely practice those activities. Here are 7 fun games that will make you more intelligent that you should consider:

1. Scrabble

If you are competitive at playing Scrabble, you should be quite proud of yourself. There are studies which show that Scrabble experts are better at vertical fluency (this is a skill which allows you to handle words presented in a vertical fashion) and semantic deemphasis (this is a skill which improves your ability to handle word responses). These skills lead to better word recognition in adults so in the long term, Scrabble can make you smarter.
