Where Chess Meets Scrabble!
Possibly the most challenging word game on the planet!

Brain Swaggle is a revolutionary word game that is truly in a class of its own! Designed originally as a tool to increase brain activity and help stave off early age onset Alzheimer’s, Brain Swaggle has developed into a unique, challenging game of skill for people of all ages looking to enhance brain function while having fun at the same time!

Dr. Dave Rickson, MD says “Brain Swaggle is very strategic and loads of fun! It uses broad areas of the brain. Just spelling itself uses four areas of the brain, and you combine that with strategy and planning.”

When selecting a game to challenge your brain, noted Neurologist Dr. Eduardo R. Locatelli recommends that multiple thought processes are engaged all at once. Brain Swaggle™ effectively combines the strategies of Chess and Scrabble to engage these neural thought processes and help achieve stronger, healthier brain performance. (No worries, no need to know how to play Chess :) )

Remember More. Faster. Longer.

Chief Brain Swaggler

Understanding the importance and benefits of true total body fitness - mind, body and soul - Gary Downing was the owner operator of Total Fitness in Medina Ohio for over 9 years, is a nationally recognized fitness expert, and also a muscular therapist licensed by the Ohio State Medical Board.

Brain Swaggle was initially developed as an educational tool that would increase brain activity and help stave off early age onset Alzheimers. People who inherit these genes tend to develop symptoms in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. However, it wasn’t long before it was apparent that not only did people of all ages enjoy playing Brain Swaggle, but there was also tremendous benefit to everyone in terms of increased brain function and other benefits. So, Gary began to take the game on the road visiting schools, senior centers, assisted living, and memory care facilities. All of this began in 2011 and fast forward to 2018 and the Brain Swaggle mobile app is about to Go Live!
