Train your brain with Jigidi

Your Jigidi-time can give you a great brain workout because our environment cultivates positive and edifying interaction combined with scalable cognitive training.

This means that the more you spread out your participation on Jigidi (solving puzzles, creating puzzles, participating in social), the more brain training you'll get.

Add to that a scaling in depth, and you're reinforcing your brain training.

Scaling in depth could involve solving puzzles with more pieces than you're used to, delving into specific genres of puzzles and working on their descriptions, socializing more deeply with other users, etc.
