What better way to start each day than with a few fun, mental warm-ups. Word puzzles are a fun way to activate the brain and a great way to increase mental flexibility ... and they’re fun.
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) November 29, 2010
A new 2011 calendar featuring the popular FRAME GAMES word puzzles is now available in the form of a daily page calendar. Created by puzzle expert Terry Stickels, FRAME GAMES are a form of mental exercise where letters, shapes, fonts and shading are juxtaposed in a frame in such a way as to represent a common, well known phrase, movie, song, city, etc. An example would be: paratroubledise ... ''trouble in paradise.''
“What better way to start each day than with a few fun, mental warm-ups,” Stickels said. “Word puzzles are a fun way to activate the brain and a great way to increase mental flexibility ... and they’re fun.”
Since 2000, the puzzles have been a regular feature in USA WEEKEND Magazine, which is carried by more than 600 newspapers with an estimated readership of 48 million people. Stickels’ Frame Games have also appeared on the back on cereal boxes, have been used to promote major motion pictures and have been adopted by the national Alzheimer's Association as its ''puzzle of choice'' for dissemination in its local chapters.
The calendars can be purchased at USAWEEKEND.com and Amazon.com.
