Aash Sunday

Written by

If Aash Anand resolved to top more boards this New Year, then he's doing a better job of sticking to his resolutions than most of us. Playing in his 10th game with the club, Aash posted his first board top, gobbling 12 centers as Turkey at Peter Lokken's home in Chicago's Old Town neighborhood on Sunday. Game No. 122 ended after the Fall 1911 turn with the following center counts:

Austria (Peter Yeargin): 0; 0.000 points.
England (Christopher M. Davis): 11; 34.571 points.
France (Mike Morrison): 0; 0.000 points.
Germany (Peter Lokken): 2; 1.143 points.
Italy (Nate Cockerill): 9; 23.143 points.
Russia (John Gramila): 0; 0.000 points.
Turkey (Aash Anand): 12; 41.143 points.

The supply center chart is here. Players, how 'bout some endgame statements?

Warning: Please don't feed the Cockerill!

Written by

Game No. 120, played Dec. 29 at Guthrie's Tavern, featured three players who were new to the Weasels. They learned something we all learned long ago: Nate Cockerill is a dangerous animal.

Rain. Heat. Gloom of night.

In his first five club games, Todd "The Mailman" Woodman saw it all as he took his lumps learning the game of Diplomacy. In those five games, he suffered three eliminations. In his two survivals, he accumulated a total of just five centers. But he learned his lessons well, showed an aptitude for the game, and last night at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove, the Mailman finally delivered.
