The calendar tells us that Halloween is in two short weeks. That explains the tacky decorations sprouting all over my neighborhood. It may also explain the result of last night’s Diplomacy game at Guthrie’s Tavern.
Game No. 223 ended by time limit in a 12-center board top by the Wicked Witch of the South. In second with nine centers was the Wicked Witch of the North. The final center counts were:
Austria (Matt Sundstrom): 0; 0.000 points.
England (David St. John): 9; 28.322 points.
France (Nathan Cockerill): 6; 12.587 points.
Germany (Mike Morrison): 3; 3.147 points.
Italy (Matt Kade): 4; 5.594 points.
Russia (Josh Heffernan): 0; 0.000 points.
Turkey (Chris Kelly): 12; 50.350 points.

Next up is the Weasel Royale on Oct. 26 at Dan Burgess’ home in Downers Grove. The Royale starts with the power selection ceremony at 11 a.m. The sixth annual Undercard Game will start following the ceremony. We still have room on the Undercard, so sign up. It should be a fun event.
