What is Boxwars?Boxwars started with humble beginnings as a group who built armour using cardboard, then holding events in which to destroy them. In the design of our armour our imagination became the only limitation for the construction of our cardboard creations. The governing body of Boxwars is the Boxwars Council. They have been running Boxwars from the inception, and are credited with the concept and development of Boxwars. The Boxwars Council is Hoss, Josh Spiegel & Ross Koger.
The first Boxwars battle now known as Boxwars 1: The Beginning, was held on the 26th January 2002 in Melbourne, Australia. This epic encounter came about by our need for a creative outlet, whilst recognising the fantastic material which is CARDBOARD. With cardboard, or street name “box”, we quickly discovered had brilliant properties for engineering. The limits of scale and awesomeness were continuously pushed to greater commanding heights with the development of our skills with this great stuff.

Boxwars now builds sculptures, armour, props and sets. Exploring our site will reveal how we've adapted our building techniques to a range of different applications. Our idea has spread like tumble weed over the globe, and is now practiced by a legion of fans. Boxwars has become an all-mighty explosion in Toronto, Canada with the Canadian chapter of Boxwars lead by the infamous Skullman. Boxwars has also become very well known in Edinburgh, Scotland with the chaps at the UK chapter of Boxwars.One of our main goals is to bring cardboard back to the consumers who discarded it in the first place without realising its true potential. This we consider a war.....and no war is without conflict. And with Boxwars, there is no better reason for a conflict. It should also be stated that our war has no borders or victors...only losers. After all, the only good war is a Boxwar!
