Brain Games Toolkit
Here are some simple tools to help you create and grow your own senior brain games program. Use them as inspiration or feel free to literally download, copy, and change them to suit your own needs.
Spreading the Word
This was a flier from our first year. We've removed the details of that event so that you can download the flier and use it to promote your own games. It's available as a standard JPEG image file or a PowerPoint. Are you wondering, "Why PowerPoint?" When you need to put a flier together quickly and easily, we've found that PowerPoint can be a fair substitute for graphics software if you don't have something like Photoshop, or don't have experience. Many more people have access to PowerPoint. So we're making that suggestion and including that option for ease of use, but you're welcome to use whatever works for you.
Keeping Track and Keeping Score
You won't necessarily need this on Day 1, or when you play with a small group within your own senior center, but a bracket will come in handy once your center becomes more competitive and begins playing against other centers. Again, it's available as a standard JPEG image file or a PowerPoint.
Playing By the Rules
