Synopsis
The Phantom allows himself to be shanghaied so as to take part in Queen Sansamor's game. Six men fight to the death to win their way to a tent and fight the Queen's champion, the winner to receive a fortune in jewels. The Phantom wins through to find a death trap and an executioner, rather than a fair fight. He breaks out with Devil's help and proves that the Queen's jewels are paste. Her disgusted soldiers arrest and depose her, ending the rigged tournaments.
