Very interesting setup by Tom: 4 Catchers, 2 Thrower, 2 Blitzer and Mighty Zug showed an interesting agility game.

Round 1


Paul played Lizards too. He chose one RR more instead of a reserve Skink. The KickOff Events were in my favour, a Blitz and Perfect Defense helped me to win the match.


Raiky’s Khemri from Berlin were quite lucky. 2 Touchbacks solved the problem of picking up the ball.

 

Round 2


Meeting Aron was lots of fun - Lizards again! He had played his first game against Lizards as well, somehow it felt just like a family party. With all the Lizard joking around we didn´t notice until turn 3 in the second half that Aron kicked twice. Since he won the match I don´t feel guilty for having had an advantage *g*


Bad luck for Dan. With a nice action in Turn 7 I pushed his Skink with ball into the crowd and managed the second TD. After this shock everything went wrong for him, but he kept his sportsmanship!

 

Round 3


David presented Orcs to me. They obviously were not used to a complete Saurus guarded strength 4 line. I finished the first day of the BBGT quite satisfied with my Lizards, having achieved 2 wins and one loss.


Very interesting game against Juan from the Spanish team. But well - Dwarfs, you can see what this means for my Gays - just click on the picture!

 

Round 4


Also an opponent from the Spanish team for me: Jese Miguel and his Undeads “Alive” . He really knows how to play them and left me 1:2 behind in Touchdowns and CAS.


Colin had a more typical setup with Ogre, 4 Blitzer, 2 Catcher and 1 Thrower. He could have won 2:1 by stalling, but he wanted to have a nice game and gave my Gays the chance for the draw.

 

Round 5


Quite a relief to meet Andy´s Humans after the Undead game. But those guys should not be underestimated - my Lizards could only manage a draw.


Pouring rain doesn’t make life easier. The Skinks had problems to pick up the ball, but the Sauruses sent 6 Gays into the CAS-box. The last Wardancer made some good leap actions, but you can see the result by clicking on the pic.

 

Round 6


Brian presented a really strong Norse Team. I didn´t know any other way against his JumpUp and blocking guys than to stop one of them with my only foul action ever in a tourny. Is there anybody really surprised that the referee of course expelled the Saurus who did it from the pitch?
