Game on: Mensa members will be hard at work in San Diego this weekend (Apr. 16-18) testing out new board games.
Thursday, April 15, 2010 17:21 GMTSAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Being a Mensa member isnt all serious in fact, sometimes its all fun and games.
This weekend (Apr. 16-18), Mensa members will gather in San Diego for the 21st Annual Mind Games, where theyll play newly-developed board games for 40 hours straight and rate them on appeal.
In the end, five games will be chosen to receive the coveted Mensa Select seal, given to games that are both fun and challenging.
Event chair LaRae Bakerink says Mensa members dont just take to tough brainteasers. The games they enjoy most are the ones with lots of action and strategizing like the previously seal-approved Scattergories and TriBond.
Bakerink says each member will test at least 30 board games and make suggestions for improvements to manufacturers.
Since Mensans are huge gamers, theyre full of creative ideas but are especially good at catching spelling and grammar errors on game cards and directions.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
