Why play Game of Arms? Why play at all? Isn't that what children do?
Recent neuroscience research has shown us several key things about play that are highly important in staying healthy as we get older. First it has shown that our adult brains are not fixed, they are malleable and a term called 'neuroplasticity' is the finding that we continue to develop our brains after we have become adults and indeed throughout the course of our lives. Second in a recent review of movement research by the prominent neuroscientist Dr. Adele Diamond, she predicted that "improving bimanual coordination and eye-hand coordination, and working on activities that require frequently crossing the midline and/or rhythmic movement, might be particularly valuable" with regards to executive function in the brain.
Playing Game of Arms provides much of those types of movements in all its games, it also provides an excellent opportunity to increase your social circle and the health benefits of continuing to be social are well documented.
