CPU Wars Is a Trump-Style Card Game Driven by Chip Stats

If you’re looking for the geekiest card game around, you’d be hard pressed to beat CPU Wars–a top-trumps card game built around CPU specs.

From the game’s designers:

CPU Wars is a trump card game built by geeks for geeks. For Volume 1.0 we chose 30 CPUs that we believe had the greatest impact on the desktop history. The game is ideally played by 2 or 3 people. The deck is split between the players and then each player takes a turn and picks a category that they think has the best value.

We have chosen the most important specs that could be numerically represented, such as maximum speed achieved and maximum number of transistors. It’s lots of fun, it has a bit of strategy and can be played during a break or over a coffee.

If you’re interested, you can pick up a copy for ¬£7.99 (roughly $12.50 USD). Hit up the link below for more information.

You can follow him on if you'd like.
