March 11, 2012 — For our Norwich debut (our 40th city ever!), we paired with Writers' Centre Norwich for a sparkling night at Norwich Arts Centre that ended with Ross Sutherland outdueling co-finalist Martin Figura in an epic and hotly-contested battle of Literary Spelling Bee that Sutherland won in sudden death by a narrower-than-it-appears margin of 9-8 to win the LDM Norwich, Ep. 1 crown.

August 10, 2010 — Deep in the recesses of a brilliant dungeon (a.k.a. The Banshee Labyrinth), the Literary Death Match's Edinburgh debut — teamed with Utter! at the Free Fringe — was pitch- and picture-perfect, with Scotland's homegrown Jenny Lindsay narrowly winning over Molly Naylor (Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You) in a breakneck game of Pass-the-Haggis to take the LDM crown.
Literary Death Match London, Ep. 3 at Old Queen's Head was a stylish and whimsical ceremony that illustriously ended when The Idler fictionist Matthew De Abaitua narrowly beat out Penned in the Margins masterful rep Ross Sutherland in a wild Hoopstravaganza. The clash featured both hastily wadding up pages of the Daily Mail and firing them through a Picador-backboarded basketball hoop. With the competition tied at 3 points apiece, De Abaitua swished his money-ball shot to take home the Literary Death Match championship!
