On Saturday, three of our veterans held a WDC primer for four of our newer players at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square. The event featured a Q&A about the upcoming World Diplomacy Championship at Weasel Moot X (June 24-26), followed by a game using tournament timing and the tournament rule set.
During the Q&A, the vets answered questions and shared their wisdom, but in the game that followed, it was the new guys who did the teaching. The game--which counted toward the league standings but not in the Bar Room Brawl--ended by draw vote during the Spring 1910 turn in the following center counts:
Austria (Brian Shelden): 0; 0.000 points.
England (John Gramila): 0; 0.000 points.
France (Bryan Pravel): 9; 24.107 points.
Germany (Matt Sundstrom): 2; 1.190 points.
Italy (Brandon Fogel): 13; 50.298 points.
Russia (Jake Trotta): 9; 24.107 points.
Turkey (Ian Trotta): 1; 0.298 points.
With the convincing board-top, Fogel opened a dramatic lead in the Season 11 standings. He now has a league-leading 3.5 board-tops.
