The college Mind Games is a prime time television program that made it's debut on KSBI TV in the fall of 2011. The program brings together teams of students from Oklahoma colleges and universities in a weekly battle of the brains.
During the the competition students will be competing for thousands of dollars in scholarship money! The format is similar to athletic tournament brackets with teams competing over the fall and spring semester. The team winning the fall competition will compete against the team winning the spring competition for the title Grand Champion and honor of being the best Mind Games school of the year.
The Chickasaw Nation is the title sponsor for the college Mind Games. Mind Games is produced at the KSBI studios and airs Sunday night at 6:00 pm. All teams will receive scholarship awards either as a consolation prize or as the weeks winning team. Taping begins the first week of September. The field for each semester is limited to the first 16 teams who return their team registration.
Mind Games utilizes a toss-up/bonus format with the bonus question being from the same subject area as the toss-up question. Competition questions come from all subject areas. The bulk of the questions are from the areas of science, history and literature. Fine arts and humanities are the next emphasis area followed by geography, current events and pop culture. Each category has a full range of subcategories to assure the questions are varied and current. Teams are made-up of three competitors and up to three alternates who may be substituted in during the games.
