Geek Fight: A business card game?!

Diving Dragon Games presents " Geek Fight." Because it's about damn time that someone made a card game for teh lulz.

In all seriousness, this is a card game that pits one internet celebrity or meme against another for great justice. The starter deck has Nostalgia Critic VS Angry Video Game Nerd - how can you go wrong with that? I mean, I'd love to be immortalized on a trading card, wouldn't you?

The only flaw I see in this (without buying anything yet) is the pack structure. Static packs can be a good thing, but really...part of the fun of card packs is pulling a rare, shiny card that no one else on your block has. There is no chance for uniqueness in these packs; I can understand their logic, but I can't imagine that collecting these cards would be much fun, y'know? When a set is that easy to get, it's not gonna appreciate too well on the secondary market.

  1. Admittedly there is no rare pull in packs, but it was made for budget minded gamers. I know I never have much money for gaming anymore.

    Of course, there are other nifty goodies in the game. We (yes, I am the game's creator) allow other companies to sponsor their own custom promo cards. This increases the card pool and makes a new goody that people will want.

    Of course, when it comes to the secondary market, as a card game player for over a decade, I am not a fan of having to pay dozens if not hundreds of dollars for a single card. Our motto is "All of the strategy, none of the bankruptcy." :P

    Plus, new collectible games die out very quickly, and we plan on sticking around for awhile.
