“Blood of Heroes” or “Salute of the Jugger” is one of my favorite film guilty pleasures. The plot involves a post-apocalyptic team playing a soccer-like sport with weapons and scoring consists of driving a dog skull on to a stake. It was great fun as an action movie and the ending was strangely affecting, at least to me. Anyway, the Australians take film appreciation to a new level with an actual league based on “Jugging.” Looks like they use boffer weapons and plastic chains. I must say that this looks like great fun. The Jugging league apparently had a booth at Gen Con Australia 2009. Did any of my Australian readers attend and see this booth? Did they play a game on-site? I would like to know how it went. Regardless, here is their site.
