And SciShow: http://www.youtube.com/scishow

We did not make this game or anything, but when we saw it, we contacted the people who were making it and they showed it to us, and we just think it looks like a really cool card game. (And if they raise enough money, they're releasing a nerdfighter-specific expansion pack, which would be--while we're on the topic of 2007 vlogbrothers terminology--pretty jokes.)
