The legend says that the game was invented to settle a dispute between two warriors of rivaling faith. To decide who went first, they would battle until the other was mortally wounded before the winner decapitated the loser and slotted their head onto a board of victory.

You use personalized checkers and instead of horrible violence, you just use regular violence and playfully try to insert your piece in by force to decide who goes first.
