For years, original Sub-Prime Weasel Kevin O’Kelly would differentiate himself from club founder and Prime Weasel for Life Jim O’Kelley by saying that the extra E in Jim’s last name stood for evil. In the first “bar” game of Season XVI, the nicer O’Kelly added a bit of deception by outright lying to his southern neighbor on his way to topping his first board in a few years.
O’Kelly as England opened to the Channel after agreeing to a DMZ then followed-up to MAO even though unbeknownst to him France left Brest available. Sort-of telling the truth in Spring 1902 allowed him to receive gifted centers from a vengeful France against Germany for not following through on an attempt to build a separate alliance to thwart the fibbing foe.
An AIR formed in the east even though the Austrian and Russian didn’t see eye to eye from the start. The Sultan, once realizing the writing on the wall, gifted his centers as well. The AIR took Munich and was positioned alongside the German centers, but with enough German armies to defend his home and the English positioning of fleets in the southern seas being a little ahead of the Italian, the game was called a draw after the Winter 1905 Adjustments.
