“Combat or gladiator is a game played by jugglers. In its most typical form, a number of players juggle three clubs each, attempting to interfere with other players’ juggling, with the winner being the last to remain juggling three clubs–not necessarily those they started with.”

Tactics include:

Moving face-to-face with an opponent so the opponent gets confused about which clubs to catch. (Only works on novice players.)
Throwing one club high, and using the time to wave a hand or club in front of an opponent.
Turning around and backing into the opponent’s clubs.
Grabbing an opponent’s club out of the air, and either dropping one of your own clubs, or continuing with four clubs.
