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 [...]
I have decided to begin the BrainBall season a little early as I will not be around later tonight to do it then. So this first day will actually run a day and a half, beginning Sunday afternoon and running until day #2 begins at 2am EDT. Please let me know ASAP if you encounter [...]
This is a interesting game of memory. You will be presented with a series of pieces, each of which is labeled with a number. This number indicates how long the piece will remain active, in seconds. When you are presented with a piece, you can drag it and place it into any one of the [...]
The goal of this task is to eliminate the pieces from the board by making connections between similar pieces. Each piece has three properties, color, shape and number. In order to match pieces, they need to have at least one element in common. The pieces are arranged into rows. You need to move from row [...]

As you mouse over an individual square within the target grid, its associated 3×3 group becomes highlighed. When [...]
The goal of this game is to reduce the board of tiles so that only one tile remains. Sometimes this is difficult or even impossible but try to leave as few pieces as you can. Eliminate the pieces by dragging tiles onto one another. You may only combine tiles that have consecutive numbers, for instance [...]
