Not any weirder than the biathlon (combination of cross-country skiing and rifle shooting).

Just don't ask your opponent to "king me!'

The knight has a mean left rook.

Golf can not be far behind.

In old Tombstone, Arizona people played a version of this only they used a deck of cards and nickle plated pistols. Movies were made off that game. Chess boxing is just too slow moving to attract Hollywood.

Rocky: I can't do it.

Adrian: What?

Rocky: I can't beat him.

Adrian: Apollo?

Rocky: Yeah. I been out there walkin' around, thinkin'. I mean, who am I kiddin'? I ain't even in the guy's league.

Adrian: What are we gonna do?

Rocky: I gotta try the Flohr-Mikenas-Carls Variation of the English Opening.

Cheesewiz - Speed golf is already a thing.
