The arithmetic one doesnt work for me. Oh well. I thought it was kind of neat until then.

Tnanks for posting this to the blue!.

For those register-phobic among you, check out the LumosIQ test. You get to play 3 of our best games and get a percentile-based "iq" score at the end of it. I'd setup a special account for all the mefites, but part of the point of signing up is that you get to track your own scores over time to see how you are improving.

I'm guessing you are on a mac? We've gotten reports of keyboard input not working on some macs, unfortunately I haven't been able to reproduce this anywhere. Email me,, if you care to help us debug (fun!).

I was unable to make it work on Safari, but Firefox on my MacBook Pro worked fine.

Works fine on my Powerbook. Mostly, anyway - it seems like sometimes the buttons come up before they're clickable, so I end up clicking two or three times to get a response (this is mostly in the birdwatching one).

Sixtoes this is great.

And it works great on my rig, but I do have a bad ass 500 Mhz PIII.

133 on the LumosIQ test first time; is everyone else too scared to post their score?

116 :( I think I need to work on my typing accuracy for the speed maths
Have to say - great job, was thinking of doing something like this myself but I dont think I could have done better.

This game is biased towards ornithologists.
