Its happening. Nerdyness is becoming mainstream. There was a time not so long ago when even playing boardgames was considered either childish or geeky. Especially complex boardgames, which were viewed with suspicion by all red-blooded American sports bros. Now we have NFL players admitting to the press that they regularly play games of Settlers of Catan in the locker room. Not only that, but as those players play for the best* NFL team in America, and as true nerds, those Catan games are hyper-competitive.
