Boxwars, A Battle Between Combatants Armed and Armored With Only Cardboard Creations

Boxwars Combatants

Boxwars is a battle between combatants armed and armored with only cardboard creations. The stated goal of Boxwars is as much about the destruction of the cardboard works as it is about their creation. The event began in Melbourne, Australia in 2002 and has since grown to a worldwide subculture with increasingly intricate constructions as the cardboard arms race escalates over time.

A promotional video put out by Boxwars shows some of the chaos that can arise out of their events.
