Pictured below: It's round #7 and Harry Dixon has drawn his brother, Joe Dixon. Harry is 6-0, Joe is 5-1. Imagine the breakfast table conversation at the motel! In this game, Joe is up a good few hundred victory points and it is coming down to the wire. The dragon is in combat with the archers having just nuked a liche... but with a strong magic phase, harry brings in the prince - impact hits up the ASS!!! Dragon fluffs all rolls for scaly skin, and then fails a break test. Harry takes game 7.... and later... game 8. Most amazing tournament moment, glad to share it with you and capture it on camera.
