Battle Of The Bands
Bigger than Drago vs. Balboa. More intellectual than Deep Blue vs Garry Kasparov. Iller than Biggie vs. 2Pac. You ain't never seen brawling like this before!
It's the Battle Of The Bands... blog style!
In the red corner, weighing in at 140lbs, the man, the mystery, the Nuclear Knockout.. Kowalskiiiiiyyyy! And in the blue corner, tipping the scales at... more than he cares to share... his finger's always on the Pulse, the Barrhead Bruiser... Scottisshhh Fiiiiictonnn!
A week tomorrow, that's Tuesday 3rd July for you calendarphobes out there, David of the ridiculously good Kowalskiy blog and I shall be going head to head in the historic and sacred battle ground that is... Top Trumps.
Here's the all important rules of play:
Each bandcard contains 6 attributes as shown above. As you can see we've whittle up the above AWESOME example for demostration purposes.
Every fortnight, David and I will pick an artist who we think are simply the bees knees and we'll fill out our bandcards. We then pick 3 attributes (first dibs alternates each month) and whoever has the highest wins the point.
For the total attribute, the winning condition is always the lowest. So there will have to be some sort of strategy and a lot more gambling involved in this than you thought!
One point is awarded for each attribute won, and a half-point is awarded to both players in the result of a draw. The winner is the person who has the most points after each attribute has been compared and points have been toted up.
The winner shall retain bragging rights until the next heat.
No kicking, scratching and/or pulling of hair.
What history shall come to know as the 'Slaughter Of The Kowal' begins on the 3rd of July. Are you ready?
