Amazing Video Game Facts, Courtesy of Our Facts Machine

Original image

People always ask where we get our amazing facts. I'm going to let you in on a little secret: we have a magic machine that spits them out on command. We call it the Facts Machine, and the other day we ordered up some video game trivia.

Can you out-fact the Facts Machine? Watch our latest Fiesta Movement video and leave a comment with your own amazing video game fact! If your fact is deemed sufficiently Amazing, you could win the mental_floss t-shirt of your choice.

The Facts Machine kept cranking out video game facts when the camera stopped rolling, so we'll be running video game stories all day.

Coming Soon: Behind the Wall of Magic

We've gotten tons of emails about the Wall of Magic on our YouTube set. While I probably could have just emailed the art director who designed it, why not drive from New York to Indianapolis and get the scoop in person? That's exactly what mental_floss co-founder Mangesh Hattikudur and I did for our most recent Fiesta Movement mission. Our video should be up soon!

Next Week We're Taking a Road Trip

A week from today, Mangesh and I are hopping in the car and heading west, to Indiana. We're meeting with our YouTube crew in Indianapolis. But the 700 miles between the Big Apple and the Hoosier State (and back) are wide open! We'll be pulling off the highway frequently to say hello and give away mental_floss paraphernalia. If you live between here and there and are up for a quick visit, send us an email (roadtrip@mentalfloss.com) or leave a comment and convince us to stop by. We'd love to meet you!

We'll be filming some behind-the-scenes stuff out there, too, so for everyone who keeps asking questions about the Cabinet of Curiosities, I'll return with a full report.
