Top 10 Brain-Teaser Games
A Brain Teaser is a puzzle that often requires unconventional problem solving and lateral thinking. Often including but not limited to logic puzzles and riddles. Collected here today are a group of well-received brain-teaser titles and series that are more than worth-while.
Note: In the case a developer would have multiple games qualify for the list, we have opted to include only one title or series to avoid any one particular person or team from dominating the entries.
Some top-performing games of past lists have been omitted in the interest of showcasing a wider breadth of our available game-play selection. For further entries please check out our Top 10 Puzzle Games, and our Top 10 Games of 2018 articles; or dive directly into the source with our Brain-Teaser, Puzzle-Skill, and Strategy Games.
