American Mensa
America's premier high-IQ organization plays newest table games to find the best

HURST, Texas - Marylandian -- Mensa members are congregating this week in Charlotte, N.C., making it the center of the board game-playing universe as they participate in one of the nation's most respected tabletop games competitions: American Mensa's Mind Games®.

The four-day board-game-judging marathon, at the Sonesta Charlotte Executive Park Hotel April 18-21, draws Mensans and their guests from across the country where they vote on the year's five best new-to-market games to be awarded the coveted Mensa Select® seal. Past winners include Scattergories™, Trivial Pursuit™, and Taboo™.

While round-the-clock fun and games for the 400 Mind Games participants, it's also serious business. The competition, founded in 1990, offers games manufacturers the chance to have their games reviewed by some of the nation's most avid game-players — members of American Mensa. The global board games market size is projected to grow from $13.06 billion in 2023 to $32.00 billion by 2032, according to Fortune Business Insights.
