One out of three ain’t bad

Remember our first game at the Red Lion back in September when we learned about a patron there who was trying to put together a game of Diplomacy? Well, we finally got him to the table. Glenn Wilson and his buddy, Frank Fish, along with Eamon Driscoll, another playdiplomacy.com recruit, joined us last night for an evening of Dip & Drinks. Wilson and Fish got the traditional Weasel welcome, which is a friendly handshake followed by a kick in the balls. Driscoll fared better. Despite the rude treatment, we’re happy to have them on board!

The game got off to another late start, and this time, the players managed only five game years, partly because they were teaching the game to Fish. It ended in the following center counts:

 

Austria (Nate Cockerill): 5; 11.062 points.
England (Erik Bergquist): 8; 28.319 points.
France (Frank Fish): 1; 0.442 points.
Germany (Matt Sundstrom): 8; 28.319 points.
Italy (Eamon Driscoll): 6; 15.929 points.
Russia (Glenn Wilson): 0; 0.000 points.
Turkey (Aaron Bernhardt): 6; 15.929 points.

Check out the supply center chart here. Players, how about some commentary?

The Weasels will be back at the Red Lion Sunday for a game at Noon. We need two more players to make that happen. Who’s in?

Find out more about an upcoming event or article, talk smack before a game, brag about your board top, or most likely, ask what on earth your fellow Weasels were thinking!
