Stop trying to out-relax me and out-relax me

The future is now, again! Here's a game in which you attempt to roll a ball across your opponent's goal line -- using only your mind. It works via a device that measures your brainwaves, which in turn controls a magnet underneath the table. Here is the cruel part: To win, you must relax your mind more than your opponent. Finally, a competitive game for the noncompetitive! I look forward to the day when there are televised tournaments, if only so I can hear sportscasters saying things like, "He really came out here to win...or not. It just doesn't matter to him all that much."
