If you want to keep those little grey cells active, then escape room board and card games ate a fantastic option to pay at home. 

Puzzle Books

You might wonder as to the connection between Sudoku and escape rooms? The answer is not that there is any direct correlation between the two. What these types of books do offer is a way of looking at problems. By doing these puzzles and exercises, you're forcing your brain to think in a different manner. Any new puzzle will give you a new perspective. You are encouraging yourself to have a new view of the world, as you begin to see things with a new set of eyes.
