I have the pleasure of introducing to you the geekball team that will see everyone eventually:


When and where did they come from? What drives these players to excellence? Who are the most primal and most civilized players?

Hailing from a frozen Earth, this player struggles to survive. He scrounges for old technology, hunts for any food he can find, and doesn't share with others. Better for nobody to have it at all, that's his motto.

Special moves include sniping, sabotaging, and skirmishing.

When does he come from? A future so far off, he uses esoteric mathematical symbols. His costume and manners will throw you off a bit; that's ok.

Special moves include random draws and extra plays.

Out to prove that the old tiles are best, you really don't want to stand too close to this player. All that fishing and hunting and root gathering has made him a little, shall we say, fragrant. Not that he shouldn't be, he works hard and it shows. He doesn't need expansions to get attention, that's what his club and spear are for.

Special moves include random draws and meeple placement.

Out to show that he's not intimidated by his bigger brother, this player walked a long way from ancient mesopotamia. Do you really wanna mess with a guy that walked that far just to show his big brother what's up? Not my idea of a good time.

Special moves include shuffling, conflicts, and disasters.

He came from prehistory to play. It was hot and dull there. This large star is covered in, I don't know, it might be hair, feathers, or scales. What? Oh, that's the blood of his victims. He was hungry.

Special moves include rock throwing, bitin' off hedz, and jumping into volcanoes.

Look, this guy saying he was the Doctor came up to me and said he needed to play on my team. Great look, nice scarf, snappy dresser, but is he tough and smart enough? Turned out he new his moves, but he relies a LOT on that phonebooth of his.

Special moves include use of extradimensional space and a really long scarf.

This former miner is light and fast. I had to have him on my team. Thankfully, he was looking at the meteor shower last week and I got him to agree to a contract. Probably the nicest guy of the bunch, but he's no slouch.

Special moves include pocket sizing, asteroid mining, and laser firing. In real time.
