This year marked the fourth year of our Amazing Baseball Weekend trip.  Between 4 and 6 guys load up a minivan and travel to multiple stadiums and local watering holes.  To pass the time, we create a 64 person deathmatch tournament.  The rules are simple.  Anyone can compete.  This includes real people, fictional characters, video game characters, friends we know, etc.  Each participant is allowed one weapon if it is part of his/her persona.  We go around the car and vote who would win in a fight to the death.  Once the votes are tallied, that competitor moves on.  If there is a tie, we call a friend to break said tie.  We then decide how much damage that character absorbed throughout the fight, which carries over to future rounds.  The character also can assume some of the “powers” or weapons of their previous opponent.  So if Chun Li beat Pedro Cerrano in a fight, she then acquires his bat.  Anyway, without further ado here is the Death Match from ABW IV.  I am sure it is a little confusing, but it is a lot of fun and helps make the time go by quickly.  I recommend doing similar tournaments when you are on long drives with groups (death matches, best movie, best looking person, etc.).
