Computer Processor Card Games

CPU Wars is 'War' for Computer Geeks

— December 9, 2011 — Tech
Computer nerds finally have a card game to call their own in the form of CPU Wars. CPU Wars is a computer processor-themed card game created by Harry Mylonadis. Mylonadis' card game consists of 30 cards, each featuring a picture of a processor and its specs.

The game is ideally played by two or three people, but can be played by up to six different players. The game is simple to play, with rules similar to War with processors being pitted head-to-head with the more powerful processor claiming the weaker one for its owner. The person with the most processors at the end of the game is the winner. Mylonadis took CPU Wars to Kickstarter where it was funded in less than five days. I wouldn't be surprised to see CPU Wars in computer stores sometime in the near future.
