    It's quite a conundrum. The only way to prove your intelligence is to not buy the game at all.

    I can't help but think that buying this will automatically disqualify you from joining mensa.

    Why do you have an American flag for your profile, if you don't live in America? Anyways, back on topic, this game is good for those who like to challenge themselves, and make a change for the better. I'm glad to see games like these made. I hope some people give this one a try.....I am. ;)

    That comment, and the view on intelligence that it represents, is the exact reason why organizations like Mensa are needed.

    I am some one who usually enjoys testing, (probably because I test above average.) but this going by the name alone just seems like it would be very dry. Most Mensa tests I have taken are so tedious that I get bored half way through them...

    Edit: After looking this game up on youtube, I retract part of my statement! The game still doesn't look awesome or anything but at least it doesn't look like you would fall asleep after 10 minutes of it either.

    He comes from America alright, just not the US. Didn't you think about the possibility of him living in the US but originating from another country?
    Mensa (fem.) or Menso (mas.) means stupid in Latin American Spanish.

    Gambia, The
    "Mensa" in Germany is a canteen at universities. This title only caught my eyes because it made absolutely no sense to me.

    That and besides, I was lazy to choose the correct flag. Can we let it go? What should be taken into account is that this release is for Europe, which takes into account Spain and due to globalization matters and what not: "Mensa Academy" is still not a very attractive name for spanish speakers.
    Also someone mentioned that in Germany "Mensa" is the canteen of universities?

    Hell.
    Mensa's mostly an ego booster; you can get in with pretty much any test and the required score is pretty easy to get on some of them. It's not really an impressive feat.
