As a tournament Scrabble player, I can vouch that such injuries are in fact quite common. One of our
locals even managed to break her leg while playing. Two players came to blows across a tournament
board once. The worst one I ever heard of was when I guy had a heart attack while playing, his
opponent made her play, pressed her clock and just waited till his time ran out...

(Well, I mean in a manner of speaking, his time had ALREADY run out...) STF

Yeah, but that kind of **** is what one would expect of New Zealanders. Y'all don't **** around
