Guys… It’s been 19 years!!! I’m tired of waiting!!!
Where is MindGame?; The intellectual Othello-based Science-trivia sports game from the fictional TV show Sliders?
I thought by now that M.I.T., or the University of California, or Harvard, or other top universities would have made this a thing. Come on! Sports are so boring and Jeopardy doesn’t give anyone that adrenaline rush that we need, that’s why MindGame needs to exist!
Can I get Neil DeGrasse Tyson or Michio Kaku to back me up on this?
Look at this action about to take place! That blue guy in the back is SO ready to knock down those other guys’ theories of Quantum Entanglement. Heck, he’s thinking about adding this win into his thesis right now!
In all seriousness, I really want this game to come about, but I can’t do it alone. I need everyone to share this page and hope it gets to the top men and women at those universities so that we can finally have an intelligence-based sports game. Why do we only have sports with athletic ability at its focus? Why not combine both athleticism and brainpower?
Who knows? Maybe this could spawn a generation of kids that aspire to learning and look up to brilliant minds like celebrities. But it all starts with MindGame.
Maybe we could live in a world where this is the norm:
And maybe one more (He’s saying Love in ASL by the way):
