In this task, you are presented with a grid of pieces. Each piece has two characteristics: shape and color. After 15 seconds the grid will reset and you have to try and recreate it as best as you can. Click on a piece to rotate through the shapes. Then, once you have selected a shape, [...]
In this game you will complete the same activity 2 times. The first time you will be playing randomly, but the second time you will be working on memory. Eliminate the pieces by dragging like numbers onto each other. Only specific combinations will work. Remember them. You have only a limited time to complete each [...]
Match the line patterns. Each pattern has exactly one match. Click on a pattern to select it, and then click on its match. (Or click a second time on the original piece to deactivate it) Each line pattern is randomly rotated and therefore may not appear in the same orientation as its match.
In an effort to make everything run more smoothly and without errors, I have once again made major changes to the BrainBall system. The latest build is now available and undergoing a week of public testing before the next season begins Apr. 13. I will be making updates and improvements to the system all week [...]
The object of this game is to associate colors with specific strings of characters, and using this information, correctly identify the color for a given string. One by one, you will be provided with a target string. At first, you will have no idea which color it represents, so you will have to guess. When [...]
This is a game of memory where you need to track of the locations of different letters. Each of these letters is located within one of the four windows. You may switch in between these windows using the numbered buttons on top. Your target letter is displayed at top. This is the one you need [...]

Eliminate the pieces by dragging tiles onto one another. You may only combine tiles that have consecutive numbers, for instance [...]
In this game, you need to drag a circle onto a target. The trick is that as soon as you grab the circle and begin to drag, the target will disappear. Essentially, this task is about developing a feel for your mouse or keypad, learning to move it accurately without seeing the cursor. You earn [...]

So I have the next season of BrainBall games all ready to go but I don’t want to start a new season when I am going to be away… so the game is going to take a week off and resume Tuesday May 26 (monday is memorial day). Meanwhile, the new games are available for [...]
I had a little bit of a disaster over the weekend and had to change my webhost. While the transfer seems to have gone smoothly in general, BrainBall now seems to be a little buggy.. so today’s data will likely be tossed. I hope to get this figured out today and have things back on [...]
BrainBall v2 is live and beginning it’s inaugural season. Everything seems to be working properly, let’s hope it continues that way. Enjoy the game and please let me know if you encounter any problems. One other thing, I have shortened the game from 10 tasks to 8 tasks to make it a little less of [...]
Seek out the target picture in the grid and click on it. If you are correct you will get a new target and a new grid. Otherwise your incorrect guess will disappear and you need to continue looking.
This is a game of focus and visual processing. You need to pay attention to two different grids of numbers and determine their similarity. Every few seconds, a set of 5 numbers within the right and left grids will light up. Look for the one number that is highlighted in both grids. When you determine [...]
