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.
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 [...]
This task is very simple. Every couple seconds, a colored square will appear on the screen. If it is orange or blue, click your mouse. If it is green or purple, hit the spacebar. If it is red, do nothing. Your score is based on how quickly you react versus how many mistakes (choosing 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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]

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.
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 [...]
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.
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 [...]

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 [...]
