CPU Wars ($8): a Top Trumps style card game in which you pit your 8088s against your opponent’s 64-bit multicores.

The 30 CPUs featured date from various periods.

You, of course, will remain dateless.

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.
