The '''Creeper Move cards''' are red and yellow cardboard cards which are designed to be handed to people at geek events who are harassing others or otherwise being creepy. They are in the style of red and yellow cards in football (penalty and warning cards, respectively).

===Red===
 
The red card reads:
 
 
: CREEPER MOVE!
 
 
: If you have received this card, you have done something wildly inappropriate or otherwise harassed the person who handed this to you. You should be happy you got a card and not a punch in the face. Check yourself — you might not be this lucky twice!
 
 
===Yellow===
 
The yellow card reads:
 
 
: CREEPER MOVE!
 
 
: If you have received this card, you have done something mildly inappropriate to the person who handed this to you. Your intentions might have been good, but before future engagement make sure you are being respectful and mindful of people's boundaries.
