No Brainer is a fast-paced quiz game that asks what seems to be a never-ending string of questions, all of which require a simple yes or no answer. Hosted on Shockwave.com, it's a fun and hilarious game that is sure to put a smile on your face.
While playing, the game presents a category such as: Things with a Brain, and then begins to list nouns (person, place or thing) that either do or don't fit that category—ice cream, babies, Britney Spears, and so on. Answer "Yes" by giving the mouse a simple forward and back motion as you would nod your head in the affirmative; answer "No" by giving the mouse a simple side-to-side motion as if you were shaking your head.
You have but a second to answer correctly or get penalized with a wrong answer. Three (3) wrong answers and it's game over.
What makes this game work is that it scrambles the order that the categories are presented in, as well as the order of the nouns, and yet it uses the same list of nouns for all of the categories. There's little time to think of whether a noun fits the category, and then translate that into the proper hand movement to answer the question.
This game is a delight to play, and even more fun when playing with some friends. And if you get bored with the main game, there are two (2) variations that throw additional rules into play that are designed to trip you up. Excellent fun. Click.
