The Cranium Crunches Story
Cranium Crunches' back story goes way back well before 2011 though, when Ruth Curran, founder, was in a life-changing car accident which resulted in a traumatic brain injury. Today, most people would never know that 8 years ago, Ruth struggled not only to form complete sentences but complete thoughts. Her 18 month fight to return to somewhat normal functioning left her feeling like she was constantly trying to think her way out of a paper bag with no clues from the outside world. As part of her rehab, Ruth got her Master's in cognitive psychology and started down a whole new life path.
Over the next 5 years, a couple other situations arose that drew Ruth's attention back to brain health - both of her parents began to experience cognitive decline. Her mother began to suffer the effects of chemo-brain and, several years later, her father from Parksonian dementia. One form of relief she found for her father was the Find the Difference puzzles in Life Magazine. He had such a positive reaction to the puzzles and they soon became an activity for the two of them to work on together. This experience led Ruth down the path to starting an online website with Find the Difference puzzles and other photo-based cognitive puzzles that could people to regain a bit of control and enjoy themselves at the same time.
What's so unique about the games at Cranium Crunches?
We know that we all learn better when things happen in the context of our lives. Our goal is to create puzzles that mimic life so when you practice these cognitive skills, you are practicing within the context of your life. Many of our games are picture-based because we want you to get more than just a great brain workout from playing. We love to travel and take pictures (also great brain activities!) and felt that by turning those pictures into cognitive puzzles, we would be giving people something more than just a game to play.
