Playing games in fun, and it is educational most of the time. I have been playing Checkers on the computer, because it is fun, and educational to play it. It is using your mind to figure things out that is so redeeming about this came. I have played checkers for years. I learned while teaching school, that Checkers are wonderful for challenging your mind. It fact it helps to play the game several times in a day. Soon you are thinking brighter, because of the mental stimulation you have gone through with Checkers.
