CodCon 11 Results

CodCon 11 is in the books!  The title was taken by our very own Grand Weasel Prime, Jim O'Kelley.  Despite the many laurels he's accumulated over the years, Jim had never won a tournament in Chicago.  He took CodCon 11 in style, soloing as Turkey in the third round.  It was the seventh solo in tournament history, the third for Turkey.

Finishing in second place was last year's champion, Jake Trotta, while third place was taken by Bryan Pravel, the clubhouse leader at the end of the first day.

Tempest Round 2 AAR: Brandon Fogel

 Back to Tempest 2016 AARs

Partner or Target?
 
This game was easily the most interesting of my three at Tempest. It was an 8 hour seesaw battle that featured dramatic reversals of fortune, a Rusty Blade-winning move, an epic temper tantrum, and, ultimately, a thrown solo. Despite coming away with zero points, I actually think my result more or less maxed out what was possible for me, given the board. Most games teach me something about my own strengths and weaknesses; this one taught me something about my approach to the game itself, namely, what I look for when evaluating an alliance offer. A simple question captures the idea: Am I being viewed as a partner or a target?
