Best of Geeky Sacramento Playing Cards

Who did your fellow geeks vote as *Best* of Geeky Sacramento?
Check out the poll results here:

Please read below for info on the playing card project, including
***special promotions, contests & deals!***

(For just the complete LIST of participants, please CLICK HERE.)

A collectible playing card deck customized to feature 54 of the best businesses, social groups, organizations, special events and artists that Sacramento has to offer to geeks!

The "geeky" participants, found below, will be handing out their individual card at various locations and events such as their shops, meeting locations, fairs, festivals, conventions and other local events & venues -- visit them all to collect the entire limited-edition 54 card deck!

There will be special contests, deals, tie-ins & promotions offered by some of the businesses ( scroll down past the card images below to see the " Special Promotions" list), so when you get a card, you'll want to hold on to it, check back at this site for offers ( more to come soon!), and bring it to the stores & events with you!
