The Weekly Weasel -- Week of Feb. 1

The Weekly Weasel

Read on for the latest news from the Weasels.

The Fortune Cookies of War
It was a tale of two convoys. The French were riding high after the Spring 1902 turn in Game No. 291, played Saturday at John Gramila's home in Logan Square (...yah, apparently he moved). They had just set up a long convoy to a wide open Liverpool. At the same time, Italy's attempt to arrange a long convoy in the east was thwarted by the Turks.

It was Italy's failure rather than France's success that flipped the fortunes of war.

WCW Club Season 2016 Games

Jim displays his dot count.

Jim displays his dot count, circa Fall 1905.

In Fall 1902, while the other players were writing their orders, I walked down the hall at John Gramila's new pad in Logan Square (more on that in a moment) and fired off a pithy text to Jake Trotta: You suck at Diplomacy.

A moment later, I heard him laugh. And a couple of minutes after that, he laughed even harder.

The kids are Brawl right

Club News

Through six games in the 2016 Bar Room Brawl Series, the leaderboard is nearly filled with fresh faces.

David Spanos continues to lead the pack with three tallies and a composite score of 59.91. In second is his new recruit Zach Eddy, who topped his first board ever last night. He has 48.32 points in just the one game. Jake Langenfeld, also on the the strength of last night's board-top, is in third with 44.72 points.

Tapping Brian Shelden

WCW Club Season 2016 Games

It's a good thing we got in on the ground floor over at the Red Lion. On a typical weeknight when we started playing there four-plus years ago, it was usually just us and a handful of regulars. Not any more. Last night was particularly busy, and if we didn't have Most Favored Customer status (thanks mostly to old pal Nate Cockerill but also to an exemplary track record), we might have had to play one of last night's boards out in the cold.
