'Who Wins?' book trailer: Muhammad Ali and George Washington have air guitar battle

Posted on

We will probably never know whether Cleopatra or Galileo would triumph in a hot dog eating contest, or whether Jane Goodall could outlast Nelson Mandela in the Hunger Games, but that doesn’t mean these important topics aren’t worth debating. Thanks to the new flipbook game Who Wins?, history just got a whole lot more warped and wacky.

The book of historical hypotheticals includes over 100 historical figures that can randomly be pit against one anther in various ridiculous situations. To help players argue their points, Who Wins? includes stats listings for each figure, measuring their wealth, fitness, wisdom, bravery, artistry, and leadership on a scale of 1 to 10.

Who Wins? was created by Clay Swartz, associate editor at Boys’ Life magazine, and illustrated by Tom Booth. The book will be released on July 12.
