The Mind Sports Olympiad has held over 1000 competitions in over a decade of tournaments. It is a great way to have fun and make friends. It is open to everyone! We have a unique selection of games and tournaments and as well as the glory and the medals, many people come just for the experience of playing against the best in the world or to simply have fun.

Almost all our events use Swiss movements that means that you should end up playing against players of your own ability so you will have the opportunity to play against real people and still have a challenge.

As well as senior (adult) medals there are also junior medals up for grabs. Most of our competitions are open to anyone.

If you have been coming for more than one year you might try to achieve one of the MSO Ranks and Titles which come with an embossed certificate.

The keenest players donít even stop between competitions and there are always people who will play almost any game just for fun.

Some of the most dedicated participants play every single session in the timetable. This is perhaps the ultimate challenge, probably much tougher than running a marathon, as some of the leaner pentamind players can drop half a stone of weight in a week of living off junk food.

The Mind sports Olympiad gives you the opportunity to be able to claim to be the best games player in the World by winning our prestigious Pentamind tournament although it will take you a long time to try and unseat Demis Hassabis from his record number of peantamind wins.
