Reigning WotY tops his first board of Season 6

It was a new year with a new scoring system, but the same old Matt Sundstrom topped the board last night in Game 111, played at Guthrie’s Tavern in Wrigleyville. The game, which also featured Weasel expat Greg "The Cockpuncher" Duenow and former Sneak member Jeremiah Peterson, ended in a five-way, A/E/F/R/T draw during the Spring 1908 turn. The final center counts were:

Austria (Greg "The Cockpuncher" Duenow): 6; 13.333 points.
England (Matt Sundstrom): 10; 37.037 points.
France (Pete McNamara) 9; 30 points.
Germany (Chris Paxhia): 0; 0 points.
Italy (Todd Woodman) 0; 0 points.
Russia (Christopher M. Davis): 2; 1.481 points.
Turkey (Jeremiah Peterson; Kevin O’Kelly in Spring 1906): 7; 0 points.

Jeremiah had to leave in Spring 1906. Per our house rules, he received 0 points for the game; however, his square was factored into the sum. Therefore, the scores for this game total less than 100 points. Check out the supply center chart here.

Duenow earned his new nickname by brutally punching the onlooking O’Kell(e)ys in the balls during the course of the evening. By the end of the night, in comical fashion, he punched his own balls by two-dotting Kevin O’Kelly on a turn when he had no open centers because he had forgotten that his phone was still on Eastern Time.

Five players dropped on Tuesday and Wednesday and a sixth on Thursday, so we managed just the one board. Onlookers Jim O’Kelley and Kevin O’Kelly (when they weren’t getting punched in the nuts), Dan Burgess and John Gramila enjoyed watching the Dip game, playing Ticket to Ride, eating way too much pizza, and hanging out.

Next up for the Weasels is the recruiting game at Chicagoland Games on Nov. 10, followed by a full game at Dan’s on Nov. 13, and the twin bar games at Ballydolye in Downers Grove and Guthrie’s on Nov. 18. Make your plans to join us for one or more of these events!

    Also interesting: After a string of eight games in which Italy factored into the draw, she’s now been eliminated in three straight games.

  2. Dan Burgess

    What was the final score of Ticket to Ride? Something like Dan 137, Jim 87, John ~70, Kevin ~30?

    I think the final score was None of us got to play Diplomacy. šŸ˜†

    That Diplomacy game sure was interesting. I’d be thrilled to read recaps from some of the players!

    Sorry I had to bail on Thursday. It seems like forever since I played in a regular club game. Family and work (and family’s work).

    I actually miss you guys šŸ™
