Jugger is in the class of games that have been invented for a TV show or movie but which are now being played for real. Strange Games is indebted to Linus Smid for sending in a link to the video below.
Jugger was created for the film Salute of the Jugger but has now taken off especially in Germany and Australia. It is a team game where each team tries to move a plastic skull into their opponents goals. Only an un-armed player may handle the skull - the rest of his team mates being kitted out with swords, poles and chains to defend him from the opposing players. As the video shows, it is only slightly short of total mayhem.
