Ali Adib continues to be this season's greatest recruiting success story. He found us on the Chicago Game Lovers site back in September and joined us for the season opener. That was the first of his eight league games this season.

He's topped two of those boards and currently leads the Bar Room Brawl series. But more than that, he's brought new players into the fold. The latest of those is Andre Dankha.

Ali and Andre finished first and second in Game No. 273, played Wednesday at the Red Lion. The game ended by time limit after the Fall 1905 turn in the following center counts:


Austria (Brian Beck): 1; 0.500 points.
England (Christian Kline): 6; 18.000 points.
France (Matt Sundstrom): 5; 12.500 points.
Germany (Chris Kelly): 4; 8.000 points.
Italy (Ali Adib): 8; 32.000 points.
Russia (Jake Langenfeld): 3; 4.500 points.
Turkey (Andre Dankha): 7; 24.500 points.

Next up: As Season 10 winds down, we've got at least one house game planned for July 25. Dan Burgess is hosting in Downers Grove, but we may run a concurrent game at Matt Sundstrom's home in Glenview. Then we'll play another Red Lion game on August 12 and conclude with Weasel Pyle Ten on August 15 at Eric Brown's home in Wayne.

I'd note that in what was largely a pretty conventional game (Western powers don't clash head-on; Eastern powers gang up on Austria), the unusual note in this one was that Italy never controlled Tunis. Italy and Turkey teamed up to give Italy Greece in F'01 instead of Tunis. In '02, Italy kept pushing Austria, while Austrian fleets squeezed into the Ionian in desperation. In '03, Austria took Tunis while losing the remaining home centers. And in '04 and '05, France and Italy both prevented the other from taking Tunis, leaving Austria at the end of the game with ownership of Tunis and a fleet sitting in Tuscany doing nothing.
