2015 Mind Sports Olympiad

I’m delighted to be organizing the 2015 Mind Sports Olympiad from August 23 to 31, which features over 60 different board game competitions ranging from classics like Chess, Scrabble and Go to newer games, including Settlers of Catan, 7 Wonders, Dominion, Magic the Gathering and Carcassonne. Card games figure too, with an amateur poker world championship and bridge, along with a general knowledge quiz, stratego, shogi, and dominoes. Unique events include Tetris (video game) and a Computer Programming Championship, in addition to over a dozen world championships such as Memory, Mental Calculations and Creative Thinking. The most prestigious title is the Pentamind World Championship, which is awarded to the competitor who has the best results from five different competitions. There are also opportunities to learn games and play uncompetitively for free. Single session tournaments are £10 per entry. For more info, visit: http://www.msoworld.com/

In addition, the 2015 Diving Chess World Championship will take place on August 9 from 3pm to 6pm at the Third Space gym, 67 Brewer Street, W1F London. You can register at by emailing mindsportsolympiad@gmail.com
