The tournament was a joint effort of Thomas and Patrik who were casting and sculpting new terrain (and prizes) for the event for a couple of months ahead of time, Johan who tracked down the location for the tournament and was together with Patrik in charge of the operation during the two day long tournament. Also a special thanks to our local FoW club "Bunkerkommando Süd" who provided additional terrain for the tournament, and of course all of those players who hauled themselves across half of Sweden and across the sea from Denmark.
This two day event, saw 5 battles using the mid-war North Africa book. Provided below are the first half of the pictures, a mix of my own and those that my buddy David took. I will post the second batch of pictures tomorrow.

As you can see 3 people tied 1st place based upon tournament score. Johan had to figure out the winner somehow. The problem was the all 3 players had won 6-1 victories.
Magnus and Karl had each won 5-2 victories, here Patrik dropped out.
Both Magnus and Karl had won 4-3 victories, they had also met each other in a battle that resulted in a 2-2...
The only thing left to do was to check the sportsmanship where Magnus had 2 more points than Karl!
