Lincoln Square is known for its German heritage. Even at the Red Lion, a quaint British pub, we occasionally have to share the space with German cultural groups wearing customary garb, drinking dark beer, and chanting ritualistically.
There were no odd German clubs at the Lion on Wednesday. Nevertheless, the krauts and their close kin in Austria were goose-stepping all over the place.
Game No. 229 went to Austrian Brandon Fogel and German Brian Shelden, who split the top with 13 centers apiece. The game ended by time limit after the Fall 1906 turn in the following center counts:
Austria (Brandon Fogel): 13; 45.924 points.
England (Gus Spelman): 1; 0.272 points.
France (Carl Nyberg): 2; 1.087 points.
Germany (Brian Shelden): 13; 45.924 points.
Italy (David Spanos): 5; 6.793 points.
Russia (Nic Hamel): 0; 0.000 points.
Turkey (Ali Adib): 0; 0.000 points.
Gus, Carl and Nic were all playing their first game with the Weasels.
The supply center chart is here. Next up for the Weasels will be our 300th game at the Red Lion on May 11. Come on out and help us get started on the next hundred as well.
