sweet blast of carbonated elixir goes hand in hand with
a serious session of video games in any language or
country. We wanted to celebrate the luke warm cans and
64 oz plastics relics telling of hours played in battle
with 13 year old punks in South Korea at your favorite
game. In honor of this legacy (maybe that's a bad
choice of words), we bring you the Mr Pibb perk for
Fantasy Geeks. Let's take a look at how to use this
Perk in the game.
Pibb, as you probably know is a slightly stronger take
on Coke's mainstay carbonated drink but closer in pop to
Dr. Pepper. We didn't want to go mainstream since we
are dealing with very powerful geeks and there's nothing
common about them or going into them. Our second runner
up was Orange Drink which we liked for the pure generic
quality about it but Mr. Pibb won out. Hey, it's name
is Mr. Pibb. What does that even mean and are you
allowed to drink without being the owner of an Xbox?
We're not sure. So how does the Mr. Pibb work?
Pibb belongs to a class called Perks in the Fantasy Geek
game. The perks are elements you can apply to your own
geek players to improve their scores for the week. The
Mr. Pibb perk applies to the Gaming category for obvious
reasons. Sometimes, in the midst of post-apocalyptic
battle with BLANK (fill in aliens, zombies, cyborgs, etc
as appropriate), you need that extra jolt of caffeine
and the sweet burn of caramelized carbon on the back of
the throat to fire you for the coming assault. Hey,
it's hard work saving the BLANK (planet, moon, base,
Sunday school, etc as appropriate) on apple juice or
water. Also, how would the dentist ever make a living.
Think about them for a change, selfish.
you apply the Mr. Pibb perk to one of your 6 players, it
will increase their Gaming score by 4 points
immediately. That doesn't mean your player is safe
however. One of the other Fantasy Geek opponents may
look to target that player's Gaming score if they're
making a run for the Gaming total score or just want to
mess you because it's a lot more fun than homework.
They might apply the Contagion Trap to your player's
Gaming score. uh oh. We'll talk about Gaming later but
it has the opposite affect on that player's score.
Luckily, your Mr. Pibb will offset the trap to protect
you in some form. You can also look at a protection
Perk to that Gaming score or even a reversal but we'll
leave the big picture stuff to you as you decide how to
decimate your opponent's fantasy geek players in a quest
for total geek domination.
Mr Pibb icon is pretty straight forward. Three glorious
64 oz bottles with no wrap stand as citadels of spastic
hyperactivity, quick controller reflexes, and a mouthful
of eventual metal. One's black to reflect the Cola
lovers in all of us. One is orange out of respect for
anyone who consumes something with the word "drink"
right in the title. Finally, there's green for the
health nuts and/or lovers of Mountain Dew, another
favorite of hardcore Gamers around the world and across
