Double kill

A double kill is SCA slang for a tournament bout that ends with both fighters simultaneously striking a good blow. Depending on how the tourney is structured or the wish of the royalty present, the bout may need to be refought until they get it right. Alternatively, both fighters may be awarded a win, or have a loss marked against their name. Occasionally, the bout will be decided using a means other than the original combat, eg. arm wrestling, scissors/rock/paper.
