Mindball
is a game in which two players compete to push a ball over the other's
goal line. But there's a catch--this is a game of mind over matter and
the way to win is to relax. You can watch a video (WMV format 1.8MB) of a Mindball game in action here

Each player is wired up to an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine
which records the electrical activity in the brain. Certain frequencies
of signal are associated with different mental activities--for example,
gamma waves with a frequency above 26 Hz are associated with higher
mental activities such as problem solving.

To win at Mindball,
however, you need to produce theta waves (4-8 Hz) which are associated
with drowsiness and alpha waves (8-12 Hz) which are associated with
being relaxed. So the more relaxed you are, the better you're going to
be at this game. (NewScientist -06)
