Six new Weasels helped funk up Game No. 324, played yesterday at Mick Johnson’s Uptown apartment. Two of the newcomers hit their hallelujah (whoo), sharing the board-top, while two others tied for second.
Don’t believe me? Just watch. The game ended by draw vote during the Spring 1907 turn in the following center counts:
Austria (Patrick Zaken): 0; 0.000 points.
England (Laurie Sartain): 6; 17.647 points.
France (Jenna Probst): 7; 24.020 points.
Germany (Mick Johnson): 3; 4.412 points.
Italy (Matt Adams): 7; 24.020 points.
Russia (Kevin Poemsch): 5; 12.255 points.
Turkey (Briget Diehl): 6; 17.647 points.
Kevin and Laurie found us on Meetup. The other four are friends of Mick’s and were all playing for the first time. Club vets Brian Shelden, Jake Trotta and Bryan Pravel were on hand to answer questions and help with the adjudications, as Mick himself is a Rookie of the Year candidate, having played for the first time ever this season.
Prime Weasel Shelden described the newcomers as savvy. We hope to see them again, perhaps as early as this week’s Red Wednesday at the Red Lion.
The supply center chart is here. Players, observers, how did it go down?
(Please note that Brandon Fogel, not me, dubbed this game Uptown Funk. I’m just playing the hand I was dealt. Aaaaaaow!)
