The Weasels introduced the South Loop to our brand of bar room Diplomacy last Thursday at the Scout, a popular watering hole at 1301 S. Wabash. The event--dubbed Thunder Thursday in honor of the Norse God of Thunder--was the first offering of our new standing game in the Bar Room Brawl Series. Thunder Thursdays will be held on the fourth Thursday of every month, complementing Red Wednesdays, which will continue to be held on the second Wednesday of every month at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square.
The inaugural Thunder Thursday, our club's 359th game, ended by time limit after the Fall 1906 turn in the following center counts:
Jake "The Goat Lover" Langenfeld made it two for two on the young Season 13, topping his second board in as many chances last night at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square. While his score wasn't quite as dramatic as the one he posted at November's Red Wednesday, the top was every bit as impressive.
Langenfeld drew England in a triangle with his mentor, Ali Adib, in Germany and veteran traveler Brian Shelden in France. The Russian? Only Bull Weasel Brandon Fogel, the two-time defending Weasel of the Year.
The Goat Lover beat them all and now has twice as many tops in his past two games as he had in his first 11 with the club.

Game No. 358, our second in four days, ended by time limit after the Fall 1906 turn in the following center counts:
