Hi!

Is there a good game that simulates 1 on 1 melee fighting? I am interested in a very detailed simulation. Any advise?

Thanx!

Steve Jackson's old Melee system was nice. His updated, but out of print Man-to-Man game was extremely detailed and his current GURPS system is to my knowledge the most comprehensive system for 1 on 1 melee fighting and covers everything from ancient weapons up through laser guns and futuristic armor.

If you are looking for a specific genre, Gladiator, an out of print Avalon Hill game, is excellent for depicting one on one combat from the days of old Rome as is their Gunslingers for an old West theme of detailed man to man gunfights.

Gunslinger has a hand-to-hand combat aspect.
Wrasslin' is an old-school wrestling game. There are other wrestling games, too.
There's a game called Melee.

I had a GeekList mostly about character-level fighting in general, but not specifically tied to melee:
