Martian Mud Wrestling is a 2-player game played with 2 Stashes on a Volcano board. It only has three rules: the moving rule, the sinking rule, and the losing rule.

This game became official in 2002 when it was published in issue #15 of Hypothermia. It's not a perfect game (so says its creator), but it is a fast play once both players know what they're doing. Despite its simplicity, the game has a few surprises for you. Its main flaw is a tendency toward drawn games if both players are good.
