Plot Synopsis

Six contestants, ages 11 to 14, advance through three levels of challenges, where one wrong answer could mean a trip down the Brain Drain. Or a Face Wall suck. The group is narrowed down to the fastest thinker, who is rewarded with prizes and a thick, green-slime shower. Challenges typically test the contestants' ability to memorize or concentrate -- whether they watch short clips and answer questions or identify the missing number in a series of numbers, these kids enjoy mind-bending play.
