6 Mind Puzzles That Can Increase Your Brain Power

According to a scientific study published in 2012, the risk of Alzheimer’s disease is significantly reduced in those who regularly engage in mind-stimulating activities. This means that people who actively play games like chess or who solve puzzles are not affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia until much later in life!

1. Who is married?



2. Pursuit

A detective was chasing a criminal who ran into a lonely house. The owner of the house invited the detective to drop by.

The detective asked, “Did anyone come here?”

The owner replied, “No, and no one left the house.”

The detective asked, “Do you live with your family?”

The owner said, “No I’m alone.”

The detective asked, “Thank you. Want a cigarette?”

The owner replied, “No, thanks! I don’t smoke.”

The detective concluded, “I have three pieces of evidence that prove you are lying.”

What did the detective notice in the room?



3. Escape

Long long ago in a kingdom far, far away, there was a king who didn’t allow anybody to leave his empire and didn’t let any foreigners in. There was only one bridge that connected his kingdom with the outside world. Royal orders stated that anyone moving outside should be killed. And anyone coming into his kingdom should be sent back.

To take a rest, the guard sits inside his hut for 5 minutes and returns back to the lookout. It takes 8 minutes to pass the bridge.

Only one woman managed to escape. HOW?


When the guard was inside the hut, the woman started her walk across the bridge. She walked for 5 minutes while he was inside, and then turned and moved back toward the kingdom. When approaching the kingdom she was asked for papers. And since she didn’t have any, she wasn’t allowed in.


4. Diving

A boy decided to become a scuba diver. On his first dive, he was dazed and got completely lost under the water. He didn’t know the way back to the surface. And on top of all this, he was running out of oxygen.

How did he find his way back up?


The way to the surface is where the bubbles go.
