While we like to keep our hardcore skater action confined to Tony Hawk and his virtual blood, there are those who persist in believing they can pull the same stunts in the real world.For them, Nixon has invented The Score. Taking the familiar S-K-A-T-E game and packing it into a retro gold watch of chest hair and Brut ilk, it encourages friends to challenge one another to impromptu skate-offs. Fail to do a trick your fellow contender pulls and the whirring cogs wind the score window on from S to K, and so on. Reach E and your bloodied but victorious friend is the winner.Of course it needn't be restricted to just skaters. We're seeing the potential here for an intricate drinking game. We'll give you the rules shortly, we're just off to the pub first for some, er, research.
