Has anyone seem a computer program (other than Pirates) that has fencing
in it. I'm looking for a Fencing Simulator. Something along the lines of
4 D Boxing would be excellent.

The computer adventure game PRINCE OF PERSIA has good fencing in it. One of
the guys you have to beat can only be hit using a contre temps.

I beat Prince of Persia, but just had my first fencing lesson, so I
don't even know what contre temps is.

My wife suggests Monkey Island I.  Success at the fencing bout has
nothing to do with sword play, just your ability to slash back with
the most cutting verbal reply.

I agree.  I just started with the sport this year (we only have a fencing club
at Lehigh) so I'm just a beginning foilist, bud I'd definitely enjoy being
able to watch other people (besides the club instructor, and other members)
fence.

I have to agree, I am just starting at SFU in foiling
Last Friday was my 3rd lesson and after class I watched some
Epee with the intermediates.
It was quite interest, assuming you can follow the movements.  I was
behind the person so I could see the subtle hand movements of the epee.
