Yep. He's going to have a target in his back at ManorCon...

Or maybe he will care-bear himself to victory?

ManorCon XXXIII, or the 2015 EDC, was won by Cyrille Sevin. Toby was mashed in both of his games.

I may get around to writing my experiences up, but I will say it was interesting to come face to face with the Italians and French etc. I was on a table in round 2 with Cyrille, where he was England to my Turkey. I had no real influence on his game - Russia decided to bash heads with me (taking Rum with a fleet and then building F Sev is a pretty obvious tell), and Italy & Austria piled on. Cyrille was on to win the game, but he came up against the best defence of France I have ever seen.

Tom Haver and Conrad Woodring were there to represent USA! USA! and both had strong tournaments. Britain's top player was (I think) Jim Mills, who I have played several times (twice that weekend) and is formidable.

Brian Dennehy from Ireland was the closest to getting a Solo.

Odd tale - on Saturday night 7 dip players got stuck in a lift for a couple of hours, with nothing but a bottle and a half of wine to sustain them. If only they'd had a board...

This one in Central MA. https://sites.google.com/site/boroughsdiplomacy/home

It's next Saturday/Sunday. Sorry for the late notice, but I found out about it recently. In fact, I'm just starting a club of my own. On short notice, I taught three guys the game this morning and will have at least 4 next Friday night. I'm hoping to get a few of them to go to the above tournament.

Adam Sigal is running a Diplomacy game at the Congress of Gamers this coming weekend (September 26 & 27) in Rockville, Maryland. It's just a single open-gaming session to be run on Sunday at 11 a.m. This is not a tourney!

Website: http://emsps.com/cog/

I expect to be there for the Championship Formula Racing (re-branded Speed Circuit) demo at 1 p.m..

Hope to see some of you there!

SLOTerp, I am so sorry I was not able to turn up at the 26-27th convention. I had been unable to canvass on Saturday so I felt obligated to do it on the 27th to make up for it. Would have liked to have seen you there! How was it?

:cry: Ah well. Any chance you'll get to the Tempest in two weeks?

While I didn't play, the Diplomacy game at COG looked pretty intense (from my memory, how all ftf games are - intense).

I only played Speed Circuit and burned out my engine. My daughter scored a 2nd place in Machi Koro, a 2nd in Speed Circuit, and 3rd place in Carcassone. She had a blast and I think I've created a future powerhouse of a game player.

Alas, I did not register yet, and I think it'll have to wait until AFTER the first week of November (election 3 Nov Tuesday and we canvass every weekend).

I wish there were a clearinghouse for Diplomacy tournament results.

The North American DipCon champion was crowned at the Philadelphia Massacre back in August. Wikipedia says it was Chris Martin. I can't find tourney results anywhere but f*&^ing Wikipedia knows. Congrats to Chris!

Nor can I find results for Tempest in a Teapot. Facebook post says 39 players...

On the plus side, a Dutch champion was crowned this past weekend with complete results posted at Facebook. Congrats to Phllipp Weissert!
