June is bustin' out all over
The sheep aren't sleepin' any more!
For the Weasels, June busted out with a Diplomacy game at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove. We typically don't play league games in tournament months (Weasel Moot
is June 22-23), but we made an exception for Game No. 214, played yesterday, to accommodate Eric Brown, a founding Weasel and the host of the annual season-ending Weasel Pyle. He had a rare weekend pass, and we wanted to help him put it to good use.
Unfortunately, the Easterners rained on his parade a bit, as Austria, Turkey and Italy, respectively, took the top three spots, leaving his France in distant sixth. Don Glass grabbed the board top, his second of the season. The game ended by draw vote in Spring 1909 in the following center counts.
Austria (Don Glass): 9; 38.942 points.
England (Matt Kade): 4; 7.692 points.
France (Eric Brown): 3; 4.327 points.
Germany (Josh Heffernan): 4; 7.692 points.
Italy (Mike Morrison): 6; 17.308 points.
Russia (Paul Pignotti): 1; 0.481 points.
Turkey (Dan Burgess): 7; 23.558 points.
Check out the supply center chart here. With his board top, Glass vaulted into third place in the league. Heffernan also cracked the top seven.
Next up for the Weasels is the Moot, but before we get there, Weasel ex-pat Aash Anand will be in town next weekend and would like to play Dip with us. Can we find a host and six players to make another exception?
