Thinking Games

Thinking games, boost brain skills and is a fun method to improve concentration and many other mental functions. Several researches that have been made over the last few decades have shown that thinking games help maintain logical flow of thoughts and short-term memory. This type of games keeps the brain synapses active and create new ones through the stimulation of brain cells.

Our brain works just like our body’s muscular system. That’s why we need the “gym” to keep him alert. Thinking games cause the brain to come out of the autopilot it uses for daily routines. In essence, the brain is forced to use Cerebral Cortex, from which human intelligence also originates. So, when we put ourselves in the face of such toys, the brain evolves mentally, trying to adapt to these difficult conditions.

Thinking games can become a valuable ally for our brain function and at the same time entertain us. Our frequent participation in these activities helps to increase our mental performance by creating new brain synapses. Scientists have named the ability of our nervous system to adapt to cognitively demanding situations, “Neuroplasticity”. Putting ourselves often in such demanding situations is tedious if we do not have fun, at the same time. This is the main reason why we designed some of the most challenging but also entertaining rooms of Athens. In more detail, some extra benefits we can gain from taking part in these games are improving skills such as:


Observation is the key factor in efficient information processing and is the key element of learning. Thinking games help greatly, to improve this ability. They also help us to focus and concentrate under intense pressure.

It is of immense importance and without it, it would be practically impossible to carry out the simplest daily activities. Thinking games can greatly enhance memorization and data management. As a result, we can more easily focus our attention, recall useful information and cope efficiently with everyday life.


Logic is one of the most important brain skills because it is the main pillar of the functioning of a society. Thinking games, enhance our ability to identify patterns. In short, our ability to associate an object with a group of other objects. This ability helps us draw conclusions based on a reasonable set of thoughts and solve difficult problems.
