Battle for the Con - Deck #1 - RPG Gamer


This hilarious 2-player card game pits geek against geek in a tongue-in-cheek battle for control of Jim Con. Each deck has a different "army" with inside jokes that every gamer will love. Look for cards like "Always Plays the Cleric," "Didn't You Know There's a 5th Edition?", and "The Lake Geneva Sucker Punch." The first player to take over Jim Con wins!

Geek Wars is a hilarious line of card games that chronicles the battles of geekdom. Each Geek Wars deck is based on a different kind of gaming geek: the role playing gamers, the tabletop wargamers, the collectible card gamers, the LARPers, those people who wear furry costumes, and so on.

Regardless of which geek is profiled, every Geek Wars deck is compatible. You can pit role playing gamers against wargamers, LARPers against furries, or Trekkies against card gamers! Each deck has its own unique set of cards, with special abilities, different troops, and funny options not available in other decks.

As long as geeks have lived, there have been conventions. For as long as these conventions have existed, the different breeds of geeks have fought to control them. These battles have gone unnoticed by the outside world, but within geekdom, they are legendary. The first and most famous was at Drek Trek I in 1968. Fans of the recently cancelled Voyage of the Drek clashed with old-school science fiction geeks over the absurdity of their favorite show, resulting in massive hilarity and many fun games.

It was not until role playing game geeks and miniature wargame geeks began fighting that these battles reached great prominence. It all began in 1976. Fans of Gophers and Ghouls stormed the Fresno Convention Center demanding equal gaming space and equal access to the bathrooms and food stalls. Dubbed the Fracas in Fresno, this battle paved the way for the 1983 Milwaukee Melee, and the more recent 2001 Rumble in Chicago. All these battles have one thing in common: two bitter bands of geeks struggling to gain control of the convention.

The battles became international in scope in 2001 when BURP (Basic Universal Role Play) loyalists clashed with historical miniature gamers loyal to Wargizzard Ancients. LARPer geeks joined forces with the BURPers to overwhelm the historical miniature gamers, destroying the annual QueenFest in London, England in the process. Just recently, the battles saw a strange shift when role players and miniature wargame geeks from Milwaukee, Wisconsin put aside their historical disputes to unite in a clash with gamers from Indianapolis, Indiana. The reason? Jim Con '03 moved from its longtime Wisconsin home to the land of Hoosiers.

Now you can relive these epic battles -- and create new ones -- with Geek Wars!
