Presenting The CCP Chessboxing Rumble

RPS should take up chessboxing. Or perhaps RUSEwrestling.

Next week will see many hundreds of Eve Online pilots flocking to Iceland for the Eve Fanfest, which will feature drinking, lectures, tournaments, more drinking even more and – I’m thrilled to announce – a Chessboxing match.

Yes, 3D artists Björn “Left Rook” Jónsson and Daniel “Pretty Boy” Þórðarson are going to engage in that most noble of sports, which basically amounts to alternating 4 minute rounds of chess with 3 minute rounds of boxing. The promotional video they’ve put together for the match is quotable, eminently deadpan stuff. I can’t quite get over the following: “It would be a devastating tradgedy for this extremely ancient man to immediately fall down.”

It’s even more exciting for me because I’ll be attending the fanfest, and if there’s any way I can put money on this match you’d better believe Þórðarson’s getting my dollar. What do you reckon, readers?
