Named one of Toys Bulletin's Best of 2014!

As the newest pug on the block, you're ready to sock the next lug to enter the ring with you. The wise heads have finally let you challenge the champ and it's up to you to prove that you can sing that sweet chin music with the best.

This is a knock-down, drag-out slugfest from designer Fréderic Moyersoen that only one fighter can win; the last man standing takes home the dough and the dames.

Maybe once you've beaten back the roundheels in the one-off brawls, you can go on to fight in the bigger tournaments...

Boxing at its Best by RJ Cullen (Toys Bulletin)
We always get excited when we get our hands on any new sports related board game, and those that deal with pugilism are among are favorites. As most board game players know, the first thing necessary before attempting to play a new game is to give a quick read of the rules. Well, after reading the rules for “Knockout,” we immediately knew that we had a winner, and we could not play soon enough. In fact, our first game was played between 1:30 am and 2:00 am on a Wednesday evening. I easily won over another sports fan on the Toys Bulletin staff, and we were hooked.

That next day, we played 5 more times, and each time we got smarter about the game and loved it even more. ... We will be playing “Knockout” often and we see boxing tournaments in our future.
Getting to Know Knockout by Jocelyn Robitaille (BoardGameGeek)
The art in the game is very consistent in the way it pleases the eye and supports the theme. The board has dripplets of blood across its center and the ropes around the ring have almost a 3D effect to them. ... The real star of the show, however, is the art on the cards. There is a sense of movement about each image which makes the theme come out loud and clear, in a way that’s both exciting and gritty.

If you’re looking for a head-to-head game centered around direct confrontation, if you like games in which you’re trying to outmanoeuvre your opponent, or if you’re drawn to the boxing theme, then Knockout would most likely be an excellent addition to your collection.
Put ‘em Up! Put ‘em Up! by Jeff McAleer (The Gaming Gang)
Easy to jump into and is well paced for two players. Nice balance even if you draw badly; nail biter to the finish. Knockout is a fun little game to get an evening started or wind down with after more epic gaming. New gamers can easily be introduced to the title and the back and forth nature and momentum shifts add to the fun. (8.4/10)
Third Point of Sungularity by Mister Nizz
In summary, Knockout is a good time, not expensive, and plays very quickly. It’s easy to teach as well. The number of decisions are limited to the cards in your hand, and that seems fitting. ... Play it as an entry level or filler game, or just a little testosterone-laden entertainment. You’ll be glad you did.
