OK, well I just made some changes and played the game through twice and it seemed to work fine, so I am going to assume it’s OK unless I hear otherwise. So please let me know if you encounter one of the problems: a) the instructions page comes up blank or b) one of the [...]
so it turns out I had some travel delays and didn’t make it back home as soon as I had planned, meaning that I was not able to get the new season up today. I’ll be back from my travels later today and will have everything ready for tomorrow. C-ya then.
In this game you will be presented with a 4×5 grid of squares, each containing a letter. At any given time, all but two of these pieces will be changing at regular intervals, cycling upwards through the alphabet (from A to B to C and so on). Your job is to pay very careful attention [...]
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, [...]
I am out of town for a wedding and then a week of traveling with family, so if there are problems with any of the daily game I will not be able to address them until next monday. I believe that I have things properly set up so the games will start up properly tomorrow [...]
Just another reminder that we are still in a week-long practice mode, ironing out the kinks before beginning the season in earnest next monday. So don’t put too much stock in your stats for the week, they are not entirely accurate. Thanks to all of you that have provided me with valuable feedback. I am [...]

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 [...]
please take 10 minutes to participate in the trial season of BrainBall. If you experience any difficulties or discover and glitches, please let me know. The first season of BrainBall v2 will begin next Monday, assuming the trial period runs smoothly.
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 [...]
The new season is up & ready. Enjoy, and please let me know if you encounter any problems.
The goal of the game is to group numbers together such that they add up to 100 – or as close as possible. Move pieces from the game board to the adding queue by clicking on them. Once you’ve added a piece you may not remove it. Add as many numbers as you want to [...]
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 [...]
