EXTREME PENCIL FIGHTING RULES
Two challengers face off, each armed with a regulation wooden pencil taken from a factory-sealed pack.
The only recognized regulation competition pencil is the Dixon/Ticonderoga #2 yellow – graphite core, cedar shaft, latex eraser with aluminum stay.
The pencil may not be sharpened or altered in any way prior to initial combat.
A Pink Pearl Eraser flip determines which fighter strikes first.
The loser of the eraser flip becomes the “Defender” and holds his or her pencil between both hands in a horizontal position.
The winner of the eraser flip becomes the “Striker”, holding their pencil vertically and bringing the pencil down in a strike across the opponent’s pencil with full force, attempting to break it in two.
If the Defender’s pencil does not break from the Striker’s attempt, then it becomes the Defender’s turn to strike.
This repeats until one player’s pencil breaks in two and cannot continue.
If a pencil is cracked, but not fully broken in two, referee determines whether said pencil can continue.
If both pencils break during a strike, victory goes to the striker.
