UBB AD supports the broadcasting of BRAIN GAME documentary series in Bulgaria – the show that has achieved the highest rating in the history of National Geographic Channels in USA. The new series which premiered in Bulgaria on 18th September at 8.55 p.m. will incorporate illusions, brain games and interactive experiments in order to reveal the capacities of the human brain.

UBB AD joined the BRAIN GAMES challenge because we believe in the unlimited human capacities and the potential that every one of us is carrying within themselves”, Ms.Anka Kostova, manager of UBB AD’s PR and Sponsorship Unit said. It is precisely with the support of the Bank that the first season of BRAIN GAMES is broadcasted in Bulgaria.

BRAIN GAMES series provides a workout for the brain through giving demonstrations and engaging the spectators in interactive puzzles. The amazing illusions, games and challenges make the spectators ask themselves whether to believe their eyes or not. Each episode of Brain Games shall explore a different subject such as attention, fear, sense, time perception and memory.

Days before the premiere of the TV format in Bulgaria, Sofia hosted the largest group brain training. In the late afternoon of September 13, the customers of The MALL witnessed breath- taking experiments and trained their brain with logic puzzles and optical illusions during the event on the occasion of the upcoming premiere of the show.

Attendees had the opportunity to participate in games, interactive puzzles and illusions and thus train the most powerful gaming machine – the human brain. Among the guests of the event was the famous psychotherapist – Mrs. Madlen Algafari, who gave a scientific explanation for the phenomenon and the reactions of various brain centers, while the representative of the gaming community in Bulgaria – Mr. Martin Kadinov, advised on how not to succumb to the challenges our own brain confronts us with.

The answer to the question precisely why our brain makes tricks and magic possible was revealed by Magician Andrey who gave the public several demonstrations and explained why we tend to easily believe optical illusions.

Puzzles, games and illusions can also be tested during the ON!Fest festival which will be held between September 20th and 22nd 2013 in Inter Expo Center.
