This is a game of math and strategy. The game board consists of a grid of (blue) numbers and a bunch of (yellow) numbers. The object of the game is to use the yellow numbers to eliminate the blue numbers from the board. To play, drag a yellow piece onto the boundary between two of [...]

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 [...]

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.

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 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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.

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 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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
