On Saturday, three of our veterans held a WDC primer for four of our newer players at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square. The event featured a Q&A about the upcoming World Diplomacy Championship at Weasel Moot X (June 24-26), followed by a game using tournament timing and the tournament rule set.
During the Q&A, the vets answered questions and shared their wisdom, but in the game that followed, it was the new guys who did the teaching. The game–which counted toward the league standings but not in the Bar Room Brawl–ended by draw vote during the Spring 1910 turn in the following center counts:
Austria (Brian Shelden): 0; 0.000 points.
England (John Gramila): 0; 0.000 points.
France (Bryan Pravel): 9; 24.107 points.
Germany (Matt Sundstrom): 2; 1.190 points.
Italy (Brandon Fogel): 13; 50.298 points.
Russia (Jake Trotta): 9; 24.107 points.
Turkey (Ian Trotta): 1; 0.298 points.
With the convincing board-top, Fogel opened a dramatic lead in the Season 11 standings. He now has a league-leading 3.5 board-tops.
