Last weekend, 300 judges, 54 competing games, and forty-eight hours of nonstop board game action came together at the annual Mensa Mind Games. Members of American Mensa, the high IQ association, selected five Mensa Select winners, which were announced Sunday, April 21, 2013.

Ghooost!: Play your cards wisely to get rid of all the ghosts, undead, vampires, zombies and other spooky creatures haunting your manor. (IELLO)

KerFlip!: Fast anagram fun! Shout your word first to earn more points for tiles you use. Used tiles are then flipped and worthless. Ingenious cleanup built right into the box. (Creative Foundry Games)
