Despite the distractions of Wales' Six Nations Grand Slam decider, shoppers in Waterstones Swansea were treated to a taste of Mensa at a special promotion event on Saturday.

Mensa Cymru publicity officer Jacks Lyndon, regional officer Sam Hill and member Dale Thalrose spent the day talking to people about what Mensa does and about the supervised IQ test sessions held in South Wales.

Puzzle sheets and information leaflets were also given out, and there was chance to win a Mensa Connections board game, which was won by 19-year-old Dawson Edwards, from Glyn Neath.

There was also the chance to try out a Connections game, pick up a home test and take away an Exercise the Mind puzzle postcard.

Alongside the Mensa table, Waterstones' store manager Steve Gane had also arranged a display of Mensa products and IQ puzzle books for sale.

Many thanks to Steve and the Waterstones team for their sterling efforts! 

 The next Mensa supervised IQ test in South Wales takes place at the Clayton Hotel in Cardiff on April 27 (10.30am). The test can be taken by anyone over the age of 10 and a half, and costs £24.95. Anyone who achieves a score in the top two per cent is invited to join Mensa.
