A member on the Two Hour Wargames Yahoo! Group posted this news item from the net... chess boxing.

Can you recreate it on the tabletop?

Chess Boxing from THW

We say yes! Using a regular chess game and Friday Night Fights, you can recreate this new hybrid sport.

Here's how you do it...

First generate your boxers in Friday Night Fights normally.

Set up a five-round bout.

Fight one round.

Then play five minutes of chess.

Repeat until one player has won, or five rounds of boxing have been completed. You win by...

  1. You knockout your opponent and win.
  2. You checkmate your opponent and win.
  3. You have won the boxing match on points after the fifth round is over.
