Playing as hero Rag, fought against 2nd place. Won that game. Game gives me 2nd place without fighting hero at top of board. No tavern no combat vs 1st place.

A similar situation happened to me. I was beating the breaks off of everyone because I got an early light fang and as soon as I knocked out 3rd place, the game ended and I landed in second without having the opportunity to play against 1st
