In just his second game of Diplomacy, Simon Marcelis of Belgium vaulted into first place for Season 7 with a board top in Game No. 157, played last night at Emmett’s Alehouse in Downers Grove. The game was one of two in a night that featured six more new recruits for the Weasels.
Game No. 158, the shark board, was topped by another newcomer, Joshua Hurley, and his was a monster result. Here’s how the games turned out.
No. 157 ended by time limit after Fall 1906 in the following center counts:
Peter Lokken took over for Marcus Lundgren in Spring 1906. Per club rules, neither player scores points for the game, but the position’s square is factored into the sum. As a result, the scores for this game do not add up to 100.
Vinaya found us on Meetup. Allen is his brother-in-law. Casey, Marcus and Toby were recruited by Lokken and Simon.
No. 158 ended by time limit after the Fall 1907 turn in the following center counts:
The supply center charts are here.
Next up for the Weasels is the Royale and Undercard game at Dan Bugess’ home in Downers Grove on Nov. 12. There’s still room on the Undercard, so sign up now. Then we’ll be at the Atlantic in Lincoln Square on Nov. 16, followed by the Chicago Toy and Game Fair on Nov. 20. And keep your eyes on the site for announements of another Downers Grove bar game and a house game in the city. See you over a board soon!

Hats off to Peter Lokken, who has been an incredible recruiter. We’ve now played nine games in this young Season 7. Of the 38 players who have played in those games, 22 have been new Weasels. Lokken had a hand in bringing in eight of those new players.

Fixed. Anyone who reads your comment now will think you’re nuts.
