CPU WARS is a card game created by geeks for geeks. It's the most fun you can have with CPU Specs!
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 each other.
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 with 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 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 computer history. The game is ideally played by 2 or 3 people. The deck is split between the players, 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.
Since the launch of Volume 1.0, people had been asking us for more CPUs and more gameplay. That's why in 2014 we created Volume 2.0, The Battle of the Servers. This time we chose 30 CPUs that made a dent in server computer history. All categories have been maintained allowing you to combine decks for a total of 60 CPUs, which allows up to 6 people to play! To make things even more fun we have introduced booster cards. Four special cards, each with a unique ability. Use them as soon as you get them or put them aside for later.
