Websites for Mind Games
These games have the profile of puzzles and some games are played against the computer. They are real MINDGAMES and are meant for both children and adults. There is something about a puzzle which appeals to almost everyone, young and old. It trains young minds at the same time it is Fun. For men it can sharpen their wits and increase their logical thinking processes. It is true Edutainment. These games will not satisfy those who want to shoot, bomb and see blood, nor will it satisfy people who want games of  dexterity and chance. The selection of the games rank from those devised from ancient times or found in some books of Mathematical recreations, and some are original. 

Reading provides knowledge and is also a source of recreation. Therefore it is strongly suggested you read the rules for the puzzles carefully before you PLAY them as otherwise you may get frustrated and condemn the game itself which is self defeating. Reading the rules itself is a part of the process to logically tackle the puzzle or game.
