Post apocalypse - not yet today. Although it is possible that it will come tomorrow, and we will have to dress up in some kind of skins, shake over every drop of gasoline and start tribal wars. How do you like this prospect? You may not take it seriously - and yet hundreds of people have already started post-apocalyptic gameto feel the spirit of a brutal future. Their unusual hobby is called "jagger"- we will tell you about this funny game.
Jugger was inspired by the release of the Australian film Blood of Heroes (1989), in which Rutger Hauer organically embodied the romance of the post-apocalypse. It was there that this atmospheric game was depicted. Its members in two teams of five are trying to toss the dog's skull into a special area on the side of the enemy. Along the way, they harass each other with inhuman weapons of the post-apocalyptic era, chopping off limbs and brutally grinning opponents.
The popular masses liked the film so much that thousands of fans immediately grabbed flails, morgensterns, huge spiked clubs and maces, and started the post-apocalypse game according to approximately the same rules. But there is an important amendment: all these weapons are made of plastic and foam rubber, and they do no more harm than a pillow, and even a dog's skull is plastic. Accordingly, the player who was hit with the "weapon" does not fall to the ground in thought, how he will glue the severed head back, but simply stops, touching the ground with his hand, and after a few seconds again enters the battle-game.
Unlike our usual sports, the jagger pleases with a variety of kits and weapons. In this post-apocalyptic game it is important to convey the very spirit of competition in the cruel world of the future. This is mainly done by lovingly crafted clubs and “long swords,” which are not so easy to distinguish from clubs. Each of the countries in which the jagger developed has its own "weapon" traditions.
Jagger fights are reminiscent of Western RPG fights, but this game is simpler, less demanding on costumes, and has clear rules that can make it a truly mainstream sport. The jagger is already being cut with might and main in England, Australia, USA, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ireland and other countries.
