Oftentimes the creators of these worlds also create fictional sports and games for the characters to partake in, in part to reinforce that their world is different from our own. Sometimes the fictional sport in question is the device that the entire story hangs on. And some of these made-up games are totally badass. Hell, some of these made-up games have crossed over into the real world, and are played by devoted -- and obviously very nerdy -- fans. The following 10 sports and games are our picks for the 10 best in all of nerd-dom.
