From the Stands
From high up in the stands, amongst the rabble of the realm chewing turkey legs and swilling mead, it was clear from the first placement by Misha that the king was back and that the throne would be regained. The King played a classic Ore-Wheat-Sheep game winning with 4 cities and largest army. A meaningless attempt to block the King’s road resulted in a heated dispute, blaming and name-calling that this reporter is loathe to repeat in a publication of this calibre. Suffice it to say, even with the King’s assistance in actualizing the road blockade, it was a fruitless attempt as any seasoned veteran of Catan campaigns knows, that longest road is not typically part of a winning strategy in an O-W-S game. This was over before it even started.
Witch of the Wood
The Witch of the Wood, abandoned by her puppet master Dave “The Snake” Tom, was left powerless, wandless, brickless, wood portless and mouseless, having trouble even picking up and keeping track of her cards. The snake himself ran from the main stage to contest with sheep herders, wood cutters and brick layers in a match that they still have not completed. Oh, how the wicked have fallen. Long Live the King!
