 It's baa-aaack... the Equations Game! Many of you have enjoyed this in the past, so it seemed like a logical thing to put it here on our website for those times when you may want to tease your brain. ******************************************** This game doesn't measure your intelligence, your vocabulary, and certainly not your mathematical ability. It WILL give you the opportunity for a little mental exercise. In the years since this equations game was developed, no one we know of has ever been able to correctly solve all the equations on the first try. Lots of people, however, do report the answers coming to them long after they've quit the game, especially at unexpected moments when their minds were relaxed. In fact, that's a lot of the fun. The answers are available too, but before you give up, go away from the game and forget about it for a while...you might be surprised at how many you can solve if you give yourself a little time. INSTRUCTIONS: Each equation contains a number and the initials of words that will make the equation "true" -- you figure out the missing words. For example, "365 = D in a Y" would be "365 = Days in a Year". Remember that anything is fair game...everyday facts, current or past commercial jingles, historical events, common phrases, titles  of songs/books/movies, and so on. Some of the equations will be easy for you, some are real groaners, and a few you may never have heard of, but overall they should be just enough of a challenge to be fun. Here are the equations!
