In the summer of 2011 Harry, the creator of CPU Wars, was having a coffee break during a long meeting. While looking for something fun to do and take his mind off work, he realised that there was no quick game that was geeky and fun. That's when he came up with the vision for CPU Wars. A trump card game that pits CPUs against one another.
What followed was a long period of researching CPU specs, collecting chips and building the game. After 6 months and a lot of work, CPU Wars was ready to go to print. That's when we decided to start a kickstarter
campaign and trust our game's future to the crowd.
The results were astonishing. Tech sites and blogs
wrote about the geekiest card game ever. More than 700 people
committed to buy more than 1,300 decks and the project's funding closed at 507% of the original goal. As a thank you to these generous backers we have created a page dedicated to them
CPU Wars is now available to buy online and from selected stores. It's the most fun you can have with CPU Specs!
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.
