No, I haven’t abandoned BrainBall again … I just got sidetracked. It has been hard to gather momentum as I have a lot of other things I need to work on and it’s tough to churn out a new season every month right now since all my previous work has been rendered useless by the [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
For whatever it’s worth, I have made a slight change to the way BrainBall works that will be in effect from here on out. Up to this point, the content for all players has been exactly the same. This made it easy to compare player performance, but it also left the door open for cheating. [...]
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 [...]
For those of you who were having a problem logging into BrainBall, this should now be resolved, so give it another go. If you still have the same issue, try clearing your cache to make sure you are loading the updated page. If the problem persists, please let me know.
The object of this task is to locate the group of colors within the grid. The colors must appear just as they do in the target piece. Each target piece is a 3×3 grid of colored squares. As you mouse over an individual square within the target grid, its associated 3×3 group becomes highlighed. When [...]
Oops, BrainBall didn’t change days properly on tuesday morning. I think I have the glitch in the script all sorted out so hopefully that wont happen again. Anyway, if you tried to login and play before 11:30 and were unable to do so, come on back and give it another shot.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
