Whether you're a giant nerdy fan, or slightly in touch with your blooming nerdy side, this is a game you'll love because it really starts to push the limits of your recall ability with many different things. You have 4 set categories; Games (Board, table top, video games are all represented here), Comics (DC to Marvel, to how they look, how they are dressed or what they're affiliated with are all things we've run across so far), Sci-Fi (From Red Dwarf, to Dr. Who, to Firefly, to Star Wars/Trek, they're all here) and Fantasy (Lord of the Rings, novels, and even musicals...yes, musicals!!) as well as a Miscellaneous category that contains many, many different questions. This is truly a fantastic game.
If you're not as big of a nerd/geek fan, you still have a shot in this game, as each category isn't about the obscure things (I've run across questions about movies with Johnny Depp, Leonard DiCaprio, Ivan Rietman, etc.)
For the price, this is truly a great game, and with being able to roll the dice to choose your category, you've always got a shot to stump someone.
"Geek Out!" works well for 2 players or with a bigger group, and if some people aren't quite as good at this sort of trivia, you can put them in teams to even out the playing field a little more. For instance, I have a friend who knows a lot about sci fi and fantasy but very little about games or comics, so we paired her up with another friend who reads a lot of manga (comics) but is weaker in the other categories.
If you consider yourself geeky in any way, and know a few others who are as well, I suggest you get this game. You won't regret it. :)
Has a nice selection of categories. Really hits all the sections of Geek culture. Some of the questions can be pretty challenging. I really like the main function of the game with it going around the table seeing if other players can name more. Its fun to see people struggle to name the last one when its on the tip of their tongue etc.
I would recommend trying to get a clear set of house rules for the games. That will make it go smoother and prevent conflicts.
However, it will cause fights in certain gaming groups. You may want to experiment with some house rules when playing with people in pub groups, because some geeks are passionate about their trivia knowledge, and some people throw some really obscure answers out there. This causes neckbeard fights of epic proportion that can make the game frustrating. Another thing to note is that this game IS NOT for families. If you bust this game out with your parents, grandparents, and various children before Thanksgiving dinner, they will not be entertained. The topics are quite obscure and if you or anyone in your group have any form of geek trivia you/they will steam roll the entire game.
I suggest watching Wil Wheaton's Table Top episode about this game on Youtube. You'll get a good idea of whether or not this is for you.
