We've assembled an impressive cast of characters and
corresponding abilities for our Fantasy Geek game. And
yes, they like to party. If by party you mean all night
vids, orange soda, and hacking into COD maps. Then yes,
they party. The cast is always changing with new
entries throwing prior geek challengers down the hill of
geek ubiquity for total geek conquest. Before we get
into some of the cast and crew that make up the Fantasy
Geek game, let's look at how we judge geekiness.
Welcome to the 6 attributes of total geek retribution
and omnipotence. First, we have Gaming, a quinticential
strength of most geekdom. It doesn't matter if it's
with 20 side dice or digital avatars laying waste
through post-apocalyptic cities. Gaming is must. Next
is Physique, Baby. Geeks are proud of the their
physical differences and their physical differences
don't care what you think! With various allergies,
phobias, and rashes, fantasy geeks use their differences
to their strength. Next up is Dress Code. The minute
skinny jeans came back in, our fantasy geek commando's
stopped wearing them..out of principle. Unless of
course, they're riding about 8 inches high. I'm too
busy with the next category to worry about style.
Techmology. This is where a true geek's gift is. Look
at Google, Facebook, and the like. The world will be
ruled by the geek, not the meek and his scepter shall be
technology. Next up is Hobbies. Big deal if the
fantasy geek collects velvet elvis paintings. Who cares
if ventriloquism hasn't exploded on to the scene yet.
It will and when it does, fantasy geek's going to throw
his voice into ladies' room. Finally, there's
Odditorium, a hodge podge of every fantasy geek game
attribute that doesn't fit neatly into another
category. Just like the geek players themselves,
sometimes you need a square hole for a square peg.
Sorry, equidistant rhombus peg.
those are the attributes. Let's give you a quick teaser
for what kind of info you can expect on the fantasy geek
game players and more importantly, what detail can help
you and them win. We mentioned the categories above and
they're important. This is how you win the game. Each
fantasy geek has a base score and attribute for each of
these 6 categories. The goal of the game (simplified)
is to get the highest score during a week for a given
category (Techmology for example) across all 6 of your
geek players. For example, if your 6 geek players have
a Techmology score of 5,7,6,9,7, and 5...your total
Techmology category score is 39 (out of 60). If 39 is
the highest Techmology score among all your fantasy geek
opponents at week's end, you get 39 points. Kaboom!
There are 5 other categories so the real challenge is
how can you get more than 1 category and how will
perks/traps help you strategically. Like we said, each
geek has an attribute (such as "reversible underwear"
under Dress Code for a base score of 6). The base score
just give an average amount, any given week's score may
be up or down from there depending on that attribute
performed that week.
also give you some background into each fantasy game
geek. You have their full names, their tag-lines (also
known as their geek battle calls), and some
history/background on their ascent to the Fantasy Geek
games of our time (or any time for that). Every fantasy
geek will have a full bio and write up so you can
snuggle up to your fantasy geeks on a cold, rainy
night. Believe me, they'll love THAT!
