CLASSIC COMPUTER GAMES

These computer games are fun and educational. I think of them as mental calisthenics. They all require logical thinking and strategy.

Play them. They will make you smarter.

Please read ”How To Play Minesweeper” at https://bit.ly/2NzKtrm before the class.

Strongly Recommend Before the Class

These games are all available online (with annoying ads, but I prefer the classic Windows 7 versions, and I will be using them in this class. I recommend that before the class, you download them to your computer by going to https://bit.ly/2N6rFRp  and clicking on Download Windows 7 Games for Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

Time permitting, I will demonstrate two additional games: Tetris – game of logic AND dexterity – and The Oregon Trail – https://bit.ly/2qoCIIv) – a very nice simulation game.
