Pro or Con: a broken epee would make an effective weapon against zombies.
Friday, August 31, 2014

Some arguments I can think of...


  • tip would easily pierce eye or necrotic flesh
  • designed for thrusting
  • long enough to maintain some distance, short enough to kick dead zombies off
  • you already have a lot of practice with it


  • not as sharp as a knife or real sword
  • thrusting blade will stick in flesh
  • it's not a gun

Note: I recognize this may be a stupid question but I'm sitting here rebuilding an epee, watching The Walking Dead and guessing I can't be the first person to wonder how my skills would stack up.

Fencing drinking game/sabre joke
Friday, August 31, 2014

Haven't seen this before, so I'll be the one to do it.

I'm the president of my university club and currently our most active competitor. In my travels, I've met other university students and I've found that we all have quite a fondness for alcohol. Yet, nobody seems to have devised a fencing drinking game. So I ask you, fellow redditors: how would you build a drinking game? Bonus points if you include a drink of choice. Double bonus points if you include different drinks for each weapon that make sense for the character of the weapon.

Here's mine, complete with a sabre joke:

Fence for Rum, because pirates.

Foil: you get to give or take a shot every time you land a hit on your opponent. Two if you scored by counterattack. Both fencers drink for a simultaneous attack. Dump a shot of water on your head if you tried to counterattack and it didn't work. Your opponent dumps another one if it was only one light.

Continue until it's reasonable to stop.

Epee: Choose whether to give or take a shot for every touch you make. That includes double touches.

Continue as long as you want.

Sabre: Same rules as foil, but with a double shot if you make a successful parry-riposte. Your opponent gets to give or take a double shot if they deceive your parry.

Note: It may be difficult to establish a reasonable point to stop for sabre, as the fencing will probably remain mostly unchanged. The most effective measurement of intoxication besides the normal symptoms will be if the sabreurs begin talking about the rules. If this happens, stop immediately, as intoxication has certainly reached a high level.
