Interesting idea! Let me turn your question around and ask you a few questions: What are some examples of "brain training games?" Where would you find published material on that topic? How would OpenStudy interest at least some of its clients in "brain training games?"

I do not think this would be a good idea... OpenStudy is not another luminosity.com... It's not catering to that type of public who want instant brain training... Rather, OpenStudy could have a question/problem of the day which people who attempt to solve.

We have such questions every now and then @dumbsearch2 The problem is that OS has users in every degree of educations, an advanced math problem would be too difficult for high school students to solve. High school level challenges would be way too easy for university students. If 1 users solves the question, everyone would see it and it's not a challenge anymore. I would say a weekly challenge in several subjects where you'd have to submit the answer. That way others won't be demotivated by already having the answer and we could occasionally give out rewards for the fastest correct solution, the best solution, the most creative solution etc. The next problem is that we would need to find people who would spend time coming up with these challenges weekly and check the answers, for the most popular sections (math, history, biology, chemistry, history, music, computer science, health sciences, physics, english).

Way back in the Old Days there was the Meta-Math group. Maths challenges posted by the geniuses for the other geniuses. Turing also remembers and was far more active there than I - thomaster and mathmale came to OS after that group already closed (along with all the gossip groups the less academically inclined created for their own uses)... From time to time I play challenges in the biology group (in fact, I decided last week that after a year, I want to post another). I think it adds some fun for the really smart tutors who are challenged by teaching the material, but not really challenged by the material itself. It gives some fun for the ambitious and willing students. And I really do them because I like to make the group work together for a change - as they have to solve my problems. :) http://openstudy.com/users/blues#/updates/4f29def6e4b049df4e9df612

I love how older users recount their nostalgia ;)
