When I have run into this, I speak to the TD on a small break. I ask him to come over and watch. At least that way if it goes to adjudication the TD knows it wasn't my fault and I get the benefit of the doubt. Otherwise, if you're at a tournament on a time schedule, you know going into it you're looking at this possibility. I have watched a player who was losing deliberately slow the game down to get to the die roll. TD's gave him a DR 4 or less to win, otherwise his opponent won. He rolled a 3. Was the only way he stood a chance to win so I guess good on him. Sucks that was even an option. -- jimI tend to agree but while helping to run Oktoberfest we had a few players who were unbelievably slow. While we never had time limits it wasn't a problem for the tournament but more of an annoyance for the slow player's opponent.
How should this situation be handled at events that do have time restrictions? I think resolving the problem with a dice roll is very unsatisfactory.
