A 200-game event

Written by

In our first seven-plus years and 199 games of play, our club established a number of ironclad truisms. For example:

  • Never be the last player to stab Paul Pignotti.
  • Kevin O'Kelly is a loose cannon.
  • If Greg Duenow sends you a link, don't click it.
  • Nate Cockerill doesn't roll to board tops, he oozes to them.
  • When playing with Ted McClelland, keep your friends close and your drink covered.

Dan Burgess, Master of the House

Written by
Master of the house, keeper of the zoo
Ready to relieve 'em of a sou or two
Watering the wine, making up the weight
Pickin' up their knick-knacks when they can't see straight
Everybody loves a landlord
Everybody's bosom friend
I do whatever pleases
Jesus! Won't I bleed 'em in the end!

'Twas the day before New Year's

Written by
'Twas the day before New Year's,
and all through the North Shore,

New friends, old board-topper

Written by

Our first bring-a-friend event was a hit last night at the Red Lion. Ten people showed up, and we initiated four new Weasels. The board-topper, however, was a familiar face.

Matt Sundstrom launched his latest campaign to complete the Weasels' Grand Slam with a nine-center board top. Game No. 198 ended by time limit after the Fall 1905 turn in the following center counts:

Father knows best (finally...)

Written by

Kyle Weiskircher and his father, Mark, had met in four previous league games. In three of those games, Kyle outperformed Mark, including one where his Turkey gobbled up Mark's Austria. But at yesterday's Fourth Annual Undercard at the Weasel Royale club championship, father finally knew best.

This time, Mark was the Turk to Kyle's Austria, and the elder Weiskircher rolled to a 10-center board top. The Undercard ended by draw vote in Spring 1907 in the following center counts:
