Game of Boxes

Great Big Story visits Melbourne, Australia to experience Boxwars, medieval-inspired mock battles where participants create amazingly detailed battle gear using recycled cardboard and packing supplies. Check out more Boxwars battles on the Boxwars YouTube channel.

“Ready for combat? Grab some cardboard, tape and hot glue for a battle of epic proportions. Welcome to Boxwars, the bizarre medieval-inspired sport that’s given adults the chance to play. Originally devised by a small group of friends over drinks, Boxwars has grown to become a global phenomenon, with teams across Europe, Australia, the United States and Japan. “
