Che Otero!

Written by

You can't blame Carlos Otero if his first impression was that Diplomacy was a piece of cake. He learned the game way back in September in our second game of the season, and he promptly topped the board.

Reality quickly set in, however. In his next five games, he was eliminated three times and managed a total of seven supply centers. But in Game No. 189 played yesterday at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove, the Venezuelan native who was naturalized in March once again had his cake and ate it, too. The game ended by draw vote in Spring 1907 with Otero's England topping at 10 centers. The final center counts were:

Game No. 185 ended in Spring 1908 in the following center counts:

A dot too far

Written by

One supply center. A single, measly supply center. That's all that now separates Peter Lokken and Mike Morrison atop the Season Seven standings.

Morrison pulled off his third board top of the season today at Ted McClelland's home in Rogers Park to reclaim second place--which he had lost Thursday night--and close to within two points of front-runner Peter Lokken. But it was a small board top, by his standards.

The Sum of Squares scoring system is all about separation, and in this game, the margin between first and second was as thin as could be. Had he topped by two centers instead of one, Morrison would be in first place now. Instead, he must settle for second.

Game No. 184 ended by draw vote in Spring 1907 with Morrison's Germans at nine centers. The final center counts were:
