We had only five people show for the first (and therefore
only) round. Obviously, the overlaps with other Eurogame events
killed this event ... resulting in no laurels being awarded and
making it ineligible for future WBC events without a sponsor.
But that didn't stop us from playing a game and awarding the
wood - albeit one of non-tournament status. The game itself was
very close, with the winner scoring 750, just 30 and 35 points
ahead of second and third. Tom Parauda's strategy relied largely
on delivering messages and small orders, trading away Priveleges
he had earned early in the game. Second-place Josh Adelson went
for building control as a major source of earning cash, while
third-place Gary Noe scored moderately on Privelege and cashed
a number of large orders. Fourth-place Grace Adelson was a respectable
60 points behind the winner. The last-place player, Stuart Tucker,
foundered on a Privelege-heavy strategy, losing by 105.
