According to the Coventry Telegraph, the only rule is that you "must not kill anyone".

looked it up. The game has few rules

1) play is restricted to Long Street and
2) participants are not allowed to kill anyone.

Paul is dead.

Looks like a typical Chuck e Cheese on a typical Saturday afternoon.

St. Giles Bookshop? Are we sure this isn't footage of customers trying to get a copy of Lessons From Lucy?

First sport I've seen where the referees wear body armor (excuse me, "armour") and carry Tasers. Not that hockey referees would turn the Tasers down...

I must say, that does look like fun.


"It is ever so difficult to know what one should wear to

The Atherstone Ball."

Atherstone Ball is banned on the Klingon Home World for being too rough.

Strange that there are so few female participants.

Reminds me of the Terry Pratchett audiobook I'm currently listening to — Unseen Academicals.

Highly recommended...
