King Conker of Southwick, David Jakins, presides over the World Conker Championships.
"The game will commence with a toss of a coin, the winner of the toss may elect to strike or receive. A distance of no less than 8" or 20cm of lace must be between knuckle and nut. A small piece of nut or skin remaining shall be judged out, it must be enough to mount an attack. If both nuts smash at the same time then the match shall be replayed. A player causing a knotting of the laces will be noted, three snags will lead to disqualification. The game will be decided once one of the conkers is smashed."
