Thumb wrestling is such a time-tested, universally admired life
skill for kids that, frankly, we''re a little embarrassed at how
long it''s taken us to get around to giving it the Klutz treatment.
Our only excuse? There is no rushing the awesomeness that is The
Sleeve of Doom.
Sleek, shiny, and sensational, The Sleeve of Doom is the
ultimate instrument of combat. Two contenders slide their hands in
and clasp them together, poking their thumbs through the holes. The
sleeve prevents cheating by locking hands in place. It also looks
so darn cool we can barely pry our own hands out of it.
Thumb Wars: The Ultimate Guide covers
everything from classic challenges, strategies, and training
exercises to fake outs, trash talk, and never-beforeplayed games.
Since image is everything in the wrestling world, we also included
some clever thumb names and flashy costume ideas. We even tossed in
a handy referee guide and score cards. All of which makes
Thumb Wars more than just a book. It''s the
official rules of thumb.
