We have all grown up playing games at some point in our life. As youngsters we would play games of hide and seek or hopscotch in the school playground, as we get a little older we maybe get our first gaming console and as adults a game of pool or darts down at the local pub. However, there is lot more to gaming than just having fun with your mates.
Playing games has all sorts of benefits attached them, these can include learning, creating and even our general wellbeing. This is because when we engage in playing games our brains release endorphins, these happy chemicals help to relieve stress in our hectic life styles. Playing games like chess, crosswords and other puzzle based games challenge the brain leading to improved brain function.
