seems all the good stores for true geek fashion are
going under which poses a problem for your geek
players. Yes, they can always by pants a few sizes too
small along the lines of boy's size medium to get that
really good high rising flood look but some pieces of
their geek accoutrement are hard to come by. If only
Spencer's sold cloths. They don't so your geek fantasy
game players have to shop where they can. Garage sales,
Kmart outlet stores, 99 cent stores. You name it.
Every now and then, one of their favorite fashion
hotspots throws all their favorites styles on sale and
it's game on. They'll just have to put off the second
story building to their second life robot dojo because
all their best styles are on sale with the Half Off
fantasy geek game perk. Let's see what this means for
your game play and their role play.
Half Off game perk is one you can apply to any of your
Fantasy Geek game players and increase that player's
Dress Code category by 4 points for the week. This perk
remains in place through the week end and then resets
when the score reveals. Considering that base scores
run from about 3 to 10, 4 is a big hit and can really
swing your Dress Code score for the week if you're
trying to take that category. Scoring in the Fantasy
Geek game is counted by category across your 6 geek
players and not by the individual players so make sure
to use your perks by category in terms of strategy.
graphic for the Half Off perk is straight forward and
perfect. You have the quintessential half-off tag
attached to what has become the symbol of all things
geek...black rim glasses (think Apollo engineers running
around from the 60's) with that special little piece of
tape wrapped around the nose bridge. It's just missing
a little paper clip to hold one of the arms on tight.
Bad fashion never looked so good or so geek.
Half Off perk has it's nemesis in the Fantasy Geek game
with the Locker Room Wedgie. This is the corresponding
trap for the Dress Code category. There's also a Dress
Code protection perk called Utility Belt which protects
against the Locker Room Wedgie trap. Although Half Off
does directly interact with the protection perks and
traps, it can cancel out or offset part of the Locker
Room Wedgie Trap since perks and traps are cumulative.
Only the reversal will complete eliminate the trap
however and that's the benefit of the protection mod
over the Half Off perk against a trap. We'll leave
these strategic decisions to you but realize there's all
sorts of nonsense you can bring with perks and traps.
You're allowed to apply the Half Off perk at most once
per day which is true for all the perks and traps. You
can try to corner 1-2 categories by applying them
routinely but you also want to get as many categories
as possible to have a better chance at winning the
game. Make sure to adjust to what the other players are
doing as the week progresses as this will tell you which
perks or traps will be more advantageous. Obviously,
Half Off will be in the mix because who doesn't want to
show up to the party with a brand new T-Rex fanny pack
for the ladies.
