Clashing Blades!


SKU: 10051 Categories: , ,


A fast-and-furious two-player sword-fighting duel, using a specially illustrated poker deck!

Spades count as attacks, diamonds as defenses (parries), and clubs as counters (parry/riposte combinations). Hearts are used to record damage and to inflict especially vicious wounds. Face cards and jokers form a separate “event deck,” to add swashbuckling maneuvers.

The game is based on the designer’s own experience with college fencing, flavored by a love of swashbuckler movies. Illustration is by Ray Cornwell Jr., who practices martial arts in his spare time.
