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.

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.
