Geek Out! Tabletop Edition
Geeks love trivia. It’s the stuff that our dreams are made on. Not only do we revel in collecting trivia from our favorite subjects (sci-fi, comics, fantasy, etc.), but we enjoy proving that knowledge to other people (and sometimes even correcting the knowledge of the lesser humans). Well, a game exists specifically to test our brains in just those areas we love so bad.
You may have heard of Geek Out!, a game that challenges you to list more qualifying objects belonging to a specified category than your opponent. For instance, name 6 characters from the Mario Bros. game franchise. Think you can name more than 6? Put your bid in, but beware – if you can’t pull it off, you lose 2 points. First player to 5 wins. The original Geek Out! categories:
- Red: Games
- Blue: Comics
- Yellow: Sci-Fi
- Green: Fantasy
- Black: Miscellaneous
But this is the TableTop edition of the game, with extra bits of awesome based on Wil Wheaton’s TableTop podcast. This special version comes with a bonus TableTop mini deck that has 35 new list cards! Huzzah!
