I found this pretty funny:
Rugby is pretty simple, there are two rules:
1) Beat the crap out of the opposition.
2) Don’t let the referee observe you beating the crap out of the opposition.

Oh, and there’s some shizzle about not passing forward or running off the pitch, but that’s all secondary to the two main rules.
Fencing rules SHOULD be:
1) Stab the other guy.
2) Don’t get stabbed by the other guy.

Of course, the two very young children I’m watching over didn’t quite understand my giggling.. but they joined in anyway.
(Rules blatantly lifted from here)

  1. Sounds a lot like bloodbowl, doesn’t it? I haven’t played that for ages now. I’ve even packed all my Warhammmer minis away into the shed. Sigh, I must be getting old…

  2. Indeed. I couldn’t even tell you where my miniatures were. Clearly, you’ll have to come up to Sydney for a 10th Anniversary tournament (or something like that).

  3. Now that sounds like a good idea. We will be in Sydney around Easter, and by the looks of things we should make a trip around July as well. Congrats!

  4. We’re heading up for Matthew’s (that’s Cav and Ness’ little one) dedication over Easter. So we’re probably staying there, but we’ll have to try to get to see you guys while we are up.
