Hey kids, it's time for the first Brainy Gamer Quiz. Send the correct answer to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will earn the grudging respect of brainy gamers worldwide (I have yet to receive a visitor or subscriber from Antarctica--all other continents are represented!). I will announce the winner's name on the blog...and I may even send you a little something for your efforts.
Explain the connection between these 3 men:
I'm starting with a tough one to see what you're made of. If no one gets it right, I'll post a clue or two to help you. Good luck!
Update: After several wild guess submissions (including one by Jacobus that was way wrong, but way funny) we have a winner! Steve from East Schodack NY got it right, and even drew my attention to the fact that the photo of Eugene Jarvis in the center contains two hands that do not belong to Jarvis. Brainy Gamer salute!
Watch for my next post, which will explain how Steve connected all the dots in this crazy lineage of synaesthesia.

NEWS - One of the really fun things about PAX was trying new things, especially things that we wouldn't probably try under normal cicrumstances. One of those things was WhizKids Halo ActionClix. The game follows the same general premise as the HeroClix line but with rules that were revised to bring about a more uptempo style of play. One of the most interesting ideas was that of bringing about fast respawns similar to that of the multiplayer mode of Halo. You can build your team of 5 combatants any way you want, including facing your opponent with 5 Master Chiefs.
