Learning is an intense and engaging process. Therefore, it doesn’t hurt to inject some fun by incorporating classic games. Studies have shown that playing games eases any tension by helping learners relax, and it also improves retention rates. Here are reasons to include classic games in class.
Many games have specific content to help improve the memory of learners. Playing involves a lot of thinking and memorizing, which in the end helps them to remember a lot of information on a subject.
Games give students the motivation to learn more and pay more attention to their studies. Since most games are done in groups, students are motivated to work as a team for better results. Most often, winners are rewarded for their excellent work, which goes a long way in encouraging them to do better.
Games always require a high level of attention. Missing out on details can make you lose the prize. If this kind of attention can be transferred to studies, it will help learners to be more attentive in class.

Some games challenge students to provide solutions to various problems. The learners strategize on how to solve the issues by brainstorming on possible solutions. This is an excellent work-out for the brain and is applicable in everyday life.
