I have been tasked with finding some pc games for an adult who is rather intelligent. The type of games would be puzzles, sudoku or games that work your brain.

any help is appreciated.

Mensa games;

The Mensa Mind Games® competition provides an opportunity for game manufacturers to compete in one of the most respected and recognizable national games competitions, while having their games reviewed by some of the nation's most avid game-players — members of American Mensa. Each year, 200 Mensan participants, or "judges," play and critique games released in the past year and award the coveted Mensa Select® seal to the top five vote-getters. Past winners include ScattergoriesTM, Trivial PursuitTM and TabooTM.

Mind Games begins on Friday afternoon and ends Sunday morning. Judges tend to play around the clock, breaking only for food, drink and sleep. Hospitality is open 24 hours, but unlike the Hospitality experienced at gatherings, it is intended only for quick refreshment between games.

Board games, card games and other types of table and party games are eligible; games may be designed for one or more players. Games are judged on aesthetics, instructions, originality, play appeal and play value. Judges fill out comment cards for each game. After the competition, each manufacturer receives the comment cards, which show the age and gender of players and include their ratings and comments regarding the game.

The competition is not open to games that are incomplete or not yet in production. Video, electronic, computer games or any games that take an inordinately long time to set up and play cannot be accommodated.

Can't it be pretty to look at to? Kings Quest and Space Quest are puzzle type games. You have to explore the world and find different items and solve different puzzles to progress. I have a Kings Quest V guide from back in the day that's about a inch and a half thick...

Parts of spacequest were unfair and involved luck of learning what it wanted.

I'm still irritated at one part of SQII .. took me 2 months and a phone call to figure that one piece out.

v6 is free btw..... http://www.spacequest.net/sq6/thegame/
