When the mysterious "Motherboard in the Stone" appears at Kim Arthur's favorite arcade emporium, she and her magical friend Marlene decide to check it out. Soon Kim realizes that only she has the power to remove the Motherboard from the Stone, thus becoming queen of Game-A-Lot. But uneasy is the head that wears the crown, and it's up to Kim to save the arcade from closing—by creating the greatest video game of all time. She knows she can't do it alone: she'll need the help of all of her fellow nerds. And so begins the legend of Kim Arthur and the Nerds of the Round Table.
