This is a brain-stimulating (hence the name) bundle of animated conversions of traditional puzzle / board games "Connect", Checkers and "Baffle" (better known elsewhere as Pegged or simply "the peg game"), as well as (for unregistered users) sneak previews of new games WinHex and WinJump, boasting gameplay that can only be speculated at based on glimpses of the gameboards. A handy user interface can indicate valid moves to players unfamiliar with the rules.


WinGenius Windows 3.x WinJump also is only tantalizingly suggested.  What fun hours might be whiled away on this lovely gameboard?
WinGenius Windows 3.x Just in the nick of time, four are indeed connected.
WinGenius Windows 3.x We're only granted a glimpse at this game's board layout... its rules are left for us to imagine.

Though pitched in this release's internal documentation as being developed "in association with Apogee Software", in 1995 (presumably after the deal with Pinnacle expired) developers Twisted Pine found themselves re-distributing some of this package's constituent games (Connect, Checkers, Hoppers -- here hinted at as "WinJump") under Apogee's nemesis, Epic Megagames, as Brainiacs.
