Speed tests the skills, mental acuity, and over all fun factor of its readers with the Geek Wars—a three-part game tournament series held in various hotspots in the Metro. Teams knock out each other in a series of challenges to emerge as the ultimate winner of the competition.

The first Geek Wars was held at the Snacks & Ladders Café in Maginhawa, Quezon City, last March 19. Seven teams faced each other in four challenges—Quiz Bee, Puddle Jumper, Tangram, and Guesstures.

Team Lomo North emerged as the first-ever Geek Wars champion and brought home prizes, including an overnight stay at the Lighthouse Marina Resort, free iflix subscriptions, Gandiva Archery Range and Café gift certificates, AXN loot bags, and Booster C Energy Shot items.

For the second leg of Geek WarsSpeed invaded the DyceNDyne Bar and Café in Pasig City last May 21 to see six teams from top universities and colleges in Metro Manila outsmart and outskill one another. The participants showed wit, skills, and strategy in the Quiz Bee, Floatacious, Taboo, and Ramble Scramble challenges.

In the end, Team University of the Philippines-Diliman championed over other groups, winning Sennheiser headphones from Power Mac Center, iflix subscriptions, Gandiva Archery Range and Café and Tree Top Adventure GCs, AXN loot bags, LifeProof LifeActiv Belt Clip, Small Hands and Pinlo Power Bank from Mac Power, and Booster C Energy Shot and Vita Coco products.
