Mashable House Geek GamesWe know geeks have skills, like nunchuku skills, bow hunting skills and computer hacking skills, but what about bowling, Twister, shuffleboard and trivia skills? Think you have what it takes to compete in the Mashable House Geek Games? 

Participants are competing for all the geek glory and a sweet prize package that includes:

  • A Sony Internet TV Sony PS3 with Buzz TV trivia and SingStar® Dance games 
  • HTC Desire HD Media Link DLNA Adapters courtesy of our sponsor Skifta 
  • Special prize package courtesy of our sponsors Pepsi MAX and .TV Geeky T-shirts and wrist bands

Here's the gist:

  • Sixty-four teams will compete in a single elimination style tournament to compete for bragging rights as well as a sweet prize package from our sponsors.
  • Signups are limited so make sure you're ready to commit to bringing your A-game.
  • Each team will consist of 2 to 5 players, allowing for alternates to your team.
  • Each round will need 1 to 2 participants to compete. 
  • A fee is being collected to make sure all teams are committed to the event. All money collected will be donated to a local charity.
  • Each round will have a different sport and will be set-up for speed play. All rules will be announced on site.
