Hipster Beatdown

Everything came up vegan for Hipster John.

Playing in just his third league game of the season and in the comfortable environs of Logan Square, Hipster John Gramila attacked yesterday’s board as if it were an all-you-can-eat vegan buffet, a keg of ice cold Pabst Blue Ribbon, or a communal shower at an Arcade Fire concert. The hip son of a gun went after it. His Turkey rolled to a 13-center board top, launching Gramila into fourth place on the season.

Game No. 241, played yesterday at Hipster Peter Lokken’s newly refurbished home, ended by draw vote in Spring 1908 in the following center counts:


Austria (Hipster Ted McClelland): 1; 0.325 points.
England (Hipster Josh Heffernan): 10; 32.468 points.
France (Hipster Ben DiPaola): 5; 8.117 points.
Germany (Hipster Mike Morrison): 0; 0.000 points.
Italy (Hipster Peter Lokken): 3; 2.922 points.
Russia (Hister Jakub Mirski): 2; 1.299 points.
Turkey (Hipster John Gramila): 13; 54.870 points.

The supply center chart is here. Hopefully whatever vibe the players are currently feeling will include writing endgame statements.

This game was our fourth and perhaps hippest March Madness entry. Seventeen different people have played in the four games, although none as hip as these seven. March Madness concludes this Saturday with a game at Matt Sundstrom’s home in Glenview. We need three more to make that one happen. Sign up for a final tune-up before CODCon.
