BGF XII took place this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio. This was the
fourth iteration of the Diplomacy tournament. CABS outgrew our old
site at Fort Rapids and moved to the Ramada, the old site of the
"Gathering of Friends". Pictures of the three-round event can be found
below along with some initial results. A full write-up will be
available on BGG as a session report later this week.
