Mind Sports OlympiadThe Mind Sports Olympiad returns to University of London Union for the third time this August, giving participants the chance to prove their mental skills and mind capabilities. Originally launched in 1997 with a prize fund of £100,000, the festival was considered the biggest games festival ever to take place. Returning for its 17th year, the Olympics for the mind once again invites visitors to play games of chess, scrabble, monopoly, checkers and many more to see off other competitors in a bid for a cash prize. Further to these familiar skill tests and a number of general knowledge quizzes, there's also a video gamers tournament and the more unusual diving chess competition, which sees the game played in a pool and the time you have for each move determined by how long you can hold your breath.
