Magic: the Gathering in the UK
I think a 1-pint penalty would be an appropriate remedy. First to finish it has their version of the life total stick.
Glenn Goldsworthy said:the big issue is that this is a fun event, at a higher level event I think you both get a warning or even a game loss as there really is noway for the judge to clarify who is correct, it is not fair to assume that either player is right as either of you could be mistaken but it obviously makes a huge difference to the game who is correct.
As far as I'm concerned both deserve slaps with the wet fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
that will sort the men from the boys

Daniel Royde said:Life total discrepancy: I had Gary on 12, he had himself on 16. I attacked with a 10/10 trampler, he didn't block, I pumped it +3 for the win. Me:"You're dead", Gary:"I'm on 3."
Jason asked Ben Lei to sort it out, he hasn't been judge trained- it took a long while to get nowhere. Then Jason came over to fix it, this was also taking a long time.
In this instance I was more patient than Gary.
Short version- it was a totally lame situation, I'm sorry Gary that it spoiled your evening. I hope things were better for you afterwards.
We'll have to have a rematch so I can beat you fair and square ;)
I like the idea of the down a pint to see who's "right", though against you Gary, I think I'd probably concede the game at that point :)
