Closest Games Ever (Share your story!)

Since the dawn of time man has been sharing stories of their epic adventures in life. This is your chance to share the tale of that time you won a game that you thought you had lost or maybe even lost a game you should have won. I'm looking for tales of nailbiter games. Surprise endings. Clever ways to get out of unusual situations.

Tell the tale of your closest games, and paste in a link to the reply if you want as well.
