Back-to-school for Geek Younglings!

Gone are the days when I had to elbow my way to WalMart or Target to load up my cart with back-to-school supplies. Both my kids are in college now, and take care of their own supplies. But I know many of you are still out there in the trenches – or maybe heading back to school yourself, and are looking to geekify your goods. So I have curated some cool geeky school supplies to hook you up. Some of the links are affiliate links, so I get a small commission, which allows me to give you more geeky content! So c’mon kids – let’s get back to school!

Zenfold: Kansas City Indie Game Review

I recently received a request to review Zenfold, a mobile puzzle game created by a local team called Overhook Games. Not being an avid gamer, I turned to Mitchell Cole, owner & founder of (also local) FANatics Gaming & Entertainment for his expert opinion. Read on to find out why he calls Zenfold “devilishly fun.”

Boldly Preparing for the Promising Future

“Knowledge equals profit.”
– 74th Rule of Acquisition

I’ve been fascinated with the future since I was a kid. I grew up watching reruns of “Star Trek” with my dad, as well as “Star Wars,” “Back to the Future,” and “Logan’s Run.” I even frequently played out scenes from “Battlestar Galactica” (first generation) at recess. (Perhaps I’m dating myself a bit with these references….)

Money, Online 401k Management in the Future

Money didn’t play a huge role in a lot of these futuristic societies, though you did often see Starbuck racking up cubits at the poker table. And Quark, like any good Ferengi, was obsessed with amassing gold-pressed latinum. Pretty much all the stories were about making it through the crisis situation of the moment. (Pesky Klingons and Cylons!)

I wonder if Quark, the owner of Quark’s Bar on Star Trek’s Deep Space Nine space station, ever thought about the future and planned for his golden years? Or was he more focused on that week’s take from the Dabo tables? With a little simple planning and a good 401k analyzer, he could build a nice nest egg and let it blooom into an optimized savings strategy for his future (see what I did there?).

Geeks and Mental Health: A New Hope

May is Mental Health Month, and all you geeks are on my mind.

So many of us geeks face challenges daily, just because we’re a little bit different. We like weird TV shows, we wear weird clothes, we prefer books and pets to people, we feel anxious in social situations, while desperately wanting to feel included. This can lead to anxiety, depression, and a list of other conditions that qualify as general mental stress and sometimes illness. But I’m here to tell you – there’s hope. You’re not alone.

Many geeks struggle with mental health issues. During Mental Health Month, find some encouragement and resources on KCGeeks.com.

Add Some Geek Flair to your Trivia Team Name!

Some friends and I are putting together a team for the Ultimate Geek Trivia Showdown at Planet Comicon on the 27th. As part of our planning, we had to come up with a team name. Given that it’s a geek trivia event, we did some research and brainstorming on geek trivia team names. I thought I’d share our brainstorming results with you, in case you’ll also be there, or if you’re just headed to a Geeks Who Drink or other trivia night, and want some geeky ideas.
