Game of Phones Deck of Cards
Instead of getting together with
friends only to stare at your phones,
why not use your phones to play a
group game? Game of Phones challenges you to find, share, create, or
do something with your phone in a
Cards Against Humanity-style game.
After one card is drawn, the group
then has 60 seconds to produce,
after which the judge for that round
decides who won and the winner
collects the card. The game is over
when one player has ten cards total.
It’s a silly and fun adventure that
asks you to explore new levels of
humor and trust with your friends.
Of course, everyone needs a smartphone to play, so maybe don’t invite
your hipster friend with a flip phone
to this particular party.

smart—that’s nothing to be ashamed of! Write that fanfiction, go to
that convention, wear that cosplay. Geeks change the world with their
passions, often making it a better place. There are many different kinds
of geeks and nerds; and this roundup will feature a little something for everyone.
Whether you nerd out over audio, appreciate modernized remnants of the past,
or just want to show off your fandom, I think you’ll be happy with the gear you
find below. So please, go create. Let your passions lead you; the world needs
GameVice iPhone Controller ($79.95)
Too often, the best games on your iPhone are held back by the lack of a controller. GameVice
solves that problem, placing your iPhone snuggly in the center with a traditional controller coming off the left and right side of your display. The only, very small, drawback I faced was that I
had to remove my iPhone X case (which I expected) and my screen protector (which I did not
expect) in order to use the GameVice. But that was a small price to pay for the eight hours of
gameplay that followed. When you remove the iPhone, the two sides of the controller stay
together with a magnet and fit perfectly inside your backpack. GameVice is perfect for lazy
weekends at home and long commutes. For the iPhone gamer, this is an absolute must-have.
We all need a protective case; why not appreciate
what you’re passionate about with yours? Casetify is
fantastic at featuring a huge variety of graphics, images,
and themes that you can have printed on the case you
want. From a simple snap-on case to a heavy-duty drop-proof model, Casetify offers multiple options. My current
favorite is a Star Wars case with blue glitter that Casetify
sent me, but there is certain to be a design for (nearly)
Harry Potter PopSocket ($15)
As a Ravenclaw, it’s my duty to let you know that PopSockets offers designs for all the houses from the
Harry Potter world. Show off your lucky Gryffindor stripes, declare your proud Hufflepuff roots, or subtly
remind others of your superior Slytherin upbringing. If Harry Potter isn’t your fandom of choice, you’ll also
find your favorite Pokémon and superhero emblems from PopSockets. A PopSocket is the unofficial must-have accessory for every iPhone user. Its awesomeness can’t be overstated: use it to hold your phone
without dropping it on your face, use it as a stand to prop your phone up for watching a video, or wrap
your headphones cord around it to keep those knots at bay. It may seem trivial, but I am never going back
to an iPhone life without my PopSocket. And once you’ve tried it, I doubt you will want to either.
