The Activities: In each of the 5 mental categories you have 3 activities to flex your brain. Identify Whack Match - you'll be shown objects and you you have to whack the mole with the matching object Fast Focus - you'll get a scrambled picture that'll come into focus and you have to decide which object it is Species Spotlight - use the Wiimote like a flashlight to identify the animals you see Memorize Covered Cage - you'll get some birds in cages and you'll have to find where they are ala the shell game Face Case - remember the face(s) you see and match with the question you're given Reverse Retention - given a set of sounds, you have to play them back in reverse Analyze Match Blast - given a key at the top you have to make your picture look the same by blasting what needs to be removed Speed Sorting - read the statement and answer by clicking the right picture Block Spot - given a key block you have to choose which one matches it Compute Balloon Burst - read the statement and pop the balloons in the order called for Mallet Math - given a number, you have to knock the blocks to make the numbers match it Color Count - count the balls going in to determine the score Visualize Art Parts - given a key, you have to place objects to match Train Turn - place your turn pieces to get the train to the end Odd One Out - given a set of pictures you have to determine which is different Modes of play: You can test and increase your skills in the solo mode of the game and when you're ready to take on your friends you can go to the group mode.

At the end of the testing you'll be given your total brain weight, a letter grade and a career in which fits the brian weight you reached. The practice portion let's you practice each of the activities within each of the 5 mental categories. For each activity you can practice at the easy, medium, and hard levels. There are four medal classes you can reach that is dependant on the weight of your brain for that activity.
