MasterMind: A new activity

MasterMind! is a new activity that might be of interest to Robson Ranch residents. It is an informal endeavor that focuses on general knowledge trivia in order to have fun and keep our minds sharp.

Under consideration are various kinds of contests (beyond those offered in the Ranch House on Thursday nights). Additionally, it is likely that general knowledge questions will be published in various ways so that there will be a number of opportunities for people to test their brainpower.

For starters, anyone is welcome to visit the MasterMind! website at to try some trivia questions. Questions about MasterMind! can be emailed to [email protected] It is important to note that MasterMind! is not affiliated with the Robson Ranch HOA or any Robson Ranch company.
