Beware the Ides of Ted!

Written by

March Madness rolls on with round two on Saturday at Ted McClelland's home in Rogers Park. It will be our fifth straight weekend with a Diplomacy game. But we're still two players short. We've been trying to get one of the five current players into the fold since he relocated here from North Carolina last summer, so it would be great if we could make this game happen. Here are the details. Please sign up if you're interested and available.

Where in the world is John Gramila?

Written by

Game No. 130, played Saturday at Peter Yeargin's home in Lakeview, started 90 minutes late due to the mysterious, unexplained disappearance of John Gramila. Fortunately, Nate Cockerill, this season's leader in games played, was able to recruit one of his many contacts to round out the board. 

The seven proceeded to play another marathon game. This one ended at around 11 p.m. after the Fall 1913 turn with the host narrowly topping the board over his ally and fellow-named Peter, Peter Lokken. (Their alliance is being called the Peter Pact.) The final center counts were:

The 12 deadly Cinner's

Written by

We had 12 for Diplomacy last night at a great, and aptly named, venue in Lincoln Square: Cinner's Chili Parlour & Cocktail Lounge. With help from Christian Kline and Nate Cockerill, who played on both, we managed two boards. But first, a few words about the venue.

Peter's Cup, or God save the Yeargin

Written by
Playing England today in Dan Burgess' annual hockey day in Downers Grove event, Peter Yeargin netted the board top he needed to not only retake the lead in the league standings for Season 6 but also to potentially ice the Weasel of the Year award. Yeargin now has a lead of more than 20 points over Nate Cockerill.

The game ended after the Fall 1908 turn with the following center counts:

The Downers Grove witch trials

Written by

With apologies to Shakespeare, here's a brief account of Game No. 125, played last night at Ballydoyle Irish Pub in Downers Grove.

The confessional in the backroom at Ballydoyle. On the table in the middle, a caldron boiling. Thunder.

Enter the two Witches.

Lokken tops board; climbs into fourth

Written by

Peter Lokken topped Game No. 123, played today at my home in Oak Brook, with an 11-center Austria. Finishing second with nine centers apiece were Chris Davis and fellow member of the class of Game No. 39, Ben Morof. Whereas Davis went on to join the Sneak and eventually lead the club, Morof was playing for the first time since that game in May 2008 and for only the third time ever.
