Nintendo Crowns ‘Biggest Brain’ At NYC Event

June 16, 2007

As the world tips its collective hat to dads everywhere, Nintendo has announced the winners of its Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree Father’s Day Challenge, which took place over the weekend at the Nintendo World store in New York. The event, which partnered dads with their kids in a bracket-style playoff to compete for the title of “Biggest Brain,” saw Rick and Michael Singer of Vienna, VA taking home the coveted distinction.

The father/son duo walloped more than 30 other teams in various mental exercises to take the crown. For their efforts, the Singers took home a Wii console and a copy of Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree, which by the end of the day they were probably sick of anyway.

“I asked my son to come to New York with me for Father’s Day, but he said he’d only come if we could go to the Nintendo World store,” said Rick Singer. “We entered the Father’s Day Challenge to have fun, and had no expectations of winning. This was certainly a memorable experience.”
