Part of the Zliten Mosaic from Lybia, 2nd Century AD
For nearly a thousand years the gladiator games entertained the audiences in the Roman Republic and Roman Empire. Thought to have origins in the funeral rites during the Punic Wars of Rome and Carthage during the 3rd Century, Gladiators would duel other Gladiators, wild animals and condemned criminals in violent confrontations. Admired by the masses for their shining example of Rome’s martial ethics in both fighting and dying they were celebrated in art and commemorated in objects throughout the Empire. The decline of these games came at the introduction and adoption of Christianity as the state church of the Roman Empire. The word Gladiator itself from the Latin meaning Swordsman, and although we couldn’t in good conscience or legal advocation bestow swords upon our customers for gladiatorial pleasures we can instead give you a big squishy floor, padded safety helmets and long foam sticks. Ladies and Gentelmen, boys and girls, we present the modern ‘nanny state’ version of our ancestral brethren’s brutally violent theatrical entertainment,

How to play
This brutal yet fun Gladiator’s arena is for two players at a time of equal size and stature. Children and adults should not be pitted against each other, no matter how much the little darlings may deserve it, it’s just not fair. It could also lead to actual injury. I know, it’s just not fair.
The two volunteers should remove shoes, attach the appropriate head gear and step onto their individual podiums. Using the foam Pugil Sticks provided the aim of the game is to knock your opponent from their podium down onto the inflated bed below.
