En route to Providence via Amtrak. Approaching New Haven CT, at which I should be arriving in a half hour. TempleCon starts at 6; I'll be in Providence at 4. So far, so good -- a much smoother trip than Seattle.

Thanks DysClaimer. I think ill be able to make quick live updates as I go along from my iphone so I don't have to worry about a big write-up later.


Update #1: Just had a turkey sandwich. Mmm. Airport quality, airport prices, hotel ambiance. We're starting in about 30 min..

Jim, Alex, Roland, and Carl are here. Rest of players en route. In a hotel conference room filled with kids that probably look a lot like ninjaruler

What a dunce! I misordered as Germany in Spring 1901 to see England take Holland in the Fall. Things didn't fare much better from there... I took Holland back the next year but slowly dwindled down to what would eventually be one center, gatekeeper of the stalemate line, holding Munich until the draw was agreed upon in Winter 1914.



Need sleep, more later!

So round 2 went a little better for me.. Shared the top spot with France for 9 centers as Turkey. Taking this break between rounds to do some schoolwork. We need to get more New Yorkers out to these!

I'm a one-center Italy trying to keep Tunis in fall 1907 -- prospects aren't good

Spring 1914... The east cant put aside their differences, and without he coordination needed to prevent an eventual solo, the board votes to give England the solo. Oh well, there's always tomorrow

Superbowl is recording on the DVR and I'm waiting for my 6:20 train out of here. Fourth round went well for me -- 10 center Russia. AAR tomorrow
