In the Game of Strap-On Atari Controllers, You Win or You Die of Embarassment

Need something to do? Steam library not cutting it? Want to make complete strangers really confused and uncomfortable? Then maybe it’s time you and a buddy strap some Atari joysticks to your groin and have a sword fight with them.

Sword Fight, a real world game developed by Kurt Bieg and Ramsey Nasser, who… I don’t know what they were thinking, involves players using an S&M harness to strap an Atari joystick onto their nethers and have a sword fight with them, usually in public. A circuit board you can make yourself is hidden away inside the controllers, registering ‘hits.’ If you want to turn the awkward dial up to 11, you can also have your hands cuffed behind your back.

The best part, though, is that there’s an official Tumblr full of photos and even video of people playing this in the street.

If you give this one a shot, please, send us your photos.
