    I've decided that since this a forum primarily dedicated to video games that we should have a trivia challenge!

    Everyone here knows a lot about video games so this should be fun [​IMG]

    Here's the rules:

    1. The first person to answer a question correctly gets to post the next question.
    2. You don't just have to use text to ask a question, be creative!
    3. Please give each person time to post a question after they've gotten it correct. The thread won't die after a few hours. Be patient!
    4. The above also applies to someone being given time to verify an answer is correct as well.

    So, since I'm the creator of this thread, I get to go first:

    Which game company which still exists to this day got it's start making playing cards?

    Correct!

    Here's a little known fact for you. They were actually known as Nintendo Koppai during this time and changed names around 1956 to the Nintendo Playing Card Company.

    Its not a console... its crap... anyway it doesn't count since it wasn't marketed as a game console at launch.
