Wreckreation Nation premiere features Dagorhir battle

The premiere episode of the Discovery Channel's Wreckreation Nation will feature an epic Battle of Badon Hill as created by Dagorhir in Somerset, Pennsylvania. The first show will air January 6, 2009 at 10:00 p.m. est.

From the Discovery Channel's description of the Dagorhir segment:

Dagorhir (which translates to "battle lords" in author J.R.R. Tolkien's Sindarin Elven language) is both a sport and a game that combines fast-paced, full-contact combat simulation with elements of live-action role-playing. Dagorhir battle games combine elements of both history and fantasy, allowing participants a wide range of character choice.

The segment is one of six which also include:

  • Lawnmower Racing
  • Alligator Wrestling
  • Chess Boxing
  • Tug Fest
  • Catfish Grabblin'

So far, the "Catfish Grabblin'" seems to have sparked the most interest.

Actually, it's in the 2nd episode


I don't know where you got your information from, but according to Discovery's website, Dagorhir will be featured in the episode airing on January 13th. There are only 3 segments per show, not 6, so you've combined the first 2 episodes into 1 on your site here.

2nd episode

You're correct. Our information came from a promo ad on the channel itself. We've published an update to the article to correct the information. Thanks for letting us know.
