The Daily Brain Strain is a Bin Weevils game containing many puzzles and questions that lasts sixty seconds (a minute) and is located in Lab's Lab.

General information


You can only play Daily Brain Stain once a day. Some players discovered a glitch where you could play the quiz more than once in a day, but it is patched.


There are a combination of easy and advanced questions in the game,  and the questions are not on one subject only - the questions are about multiple topics. Some easy instances of questions featured in the Daily Brain Strain are How many squares are there? and Which flag does this country belong to?. Some more advanced instances of questions in the quiz include French questions and puzzles.


It rewards different amounts of Mulch and XP. It rewards amounts based on how many questions you answered correctly, how quick you answered those and your score you attained throughout the minute game.

More than 500 and 30 XP can be obtained for a score over 200. Less than that can be rewarded for a score under that. It is useful for levelling up and gaining XP, explaining why it is one of the popular games in Bin Weevils.

The more questions you answer correctly and the higher of a score you attain, the more Mulch and XP you will receive.

Date of creation

It has been in the Bin since early 2010, and it has not been given any permanent makeovers.


Some players have known a glitch using a cheat player where you can finish a game with 3000 points. This can only be a cheat, otherwise it wouldn't be very easy to get such a high score.

Hit The Switch!

Hit The Switch! includes working out which switch lights the bulb. These can be easy or hard to figure out, depending on your past scores.
