The Best Geek & Nerd Hobbies: Geek Tested, Nerd Approved

List Rules
The best nerdy hobbies for geeks to pick up.

Every geek needs at least a few nerdy hobbies. How else are you going to develop your geek cred? But you can’t pursue every hobby, no one has that kind of time or money. To help you out, your fellow geek nerds have voted for their favorite nerdy hobbies and past times in the hobby list below. Also be sure to vote for your favorite geeky hobbies so that you can spread the joy!

You’ll find things like the top video games, trading card games, the best board games, miniatures, and so on. Heck, you may even find nerd hobbies you’ve never heard of before. For instance, have you ever considered historical reenacting as a weekend hobby? Well it’s pretty awesome and involved.

Other popular nerd hobbies include things you don’t usually don’t expect from nerds and geeks. Things like bodybuilding. In hindsight, it actually makes sense that bodybuilding is a nerdy hobby, as it relies on general knowledge of physiology. After all, you have to know what exercises are the most efficient for developing specific muscle groups.

So if you consider yourself a geek, nerd, or something in between the two, then vote for your favorite nerdy hobbies. If you don’t see your favorite past time listed, then add it so that your fellow geeks can check it out.
