Brain Game: With Apologies


You may or may not have seen today's Brain Game elsewhere. Even if you have, it's still a fun challenge and a good mental exercise.

The goal here is fairly simple: you attempt to speak aloud the names of the colors of each word in succession. Not the words, but the color of the words. The first word, for instance, is in pink text, so you'd say "pink" (even though the word printed in pink is "blue"). The challenge is best done with a partner also looking at the screen, to either recite along with you or to check your answers as you go along. Otherwise, you might not realize if and when you've made a mistake. Enjoy!

Those of you who are colorblind, please remain quietly at your desks until everyone else has completed the task. Thank you.
