Unable to fence? No fencing club near you? Or maybe there’s another global pandemic that’s preventing you from fencing?
The All-American Fencing Academy has created a paper based fencing game. The play is similar to games like Dungeons & Dragons or Magic the Gathering. Paul Hovey and Gerhard Guevarra created this game in the midst of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and mandatory business and fencing club closures to provide the All-American Fencing Academy athletes the opportunity to virtually “bout”.

*Note: We realize that some of the play are not an exact analogy to physical fencing. It’s a game ya’ll.
Also thanks to Dan Kellner, head coach at Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club, for additional suggestions and feedback that were included in Version 1.2.
