London - Tony Corfe and his small but dedicated team are staging the Mind Sports Olympiad for the 17th year in a row, at its new regular venue.
This is the third year in a row the MSO has been held at University of London Union, Malet Street, and there were many familiar faces present including Tim Hebbes, long time MSO competitor and 2005 Pentamind World Champion. According to Etan Ilfeld, the numbers were slightly up on last year.
Below are some photographs he supplied for this site.
Details of the MSO events to date can be found on the official MSO website. The MSO finishes on August 25, and next year's event has already been confirmed.
