Harry Potter VS Star Wars: A Jedi Takes on a Wizard

What starts as a bunch of friends hanging out and playing video games, very quickly descends into all out Jedi versus wizard warfare, as a lightsaber and magic wand duel it out in an epic battle that can only end in death. And blood. And some geeky references thrown in to LOTR for good measure.
