- May 2, 2006Boffer is by no means just an SCA thing. Matter of fact, the only
reason that Boffer fighting came into the SCA is it was done in so
many other facets of the modern world, that people in the SCA saw it
and said, "Oh, we can let kids do that," and thus it started
The first time I saw boffer weapons used, was in LARP games back in
the late 80's, when D&D was LARPed.
I know there's also a Group (I think it's called Knard, or something
like that, I don't know how to spell it) that's north of KC, which
does LARP with DND at least once a month, and it's been going for
years. I know some kids who go participate, and love it. Not SCA
associated at all.
So I'd say, while not widely popular with most people today, it's
easy to say Boffer has existed for at least 15 or so years in the
modern world, and I only know if it being SCA legal for between 5-10.
