Tournament Director's Award

Awarded to Dan Lester, for the highest ever single-round non-solo score in a ManorCon Diplomacy Tournament - 17 in a 17-5-5-3-2-2.

18XX

The 18XX tournament had 25 players playing 19 games. Indeed, so much so, we saw the 18XX spill out from its normal room in the Library into other playing areas in Stamford House; is this the start of a takeover? The games included 4 each of 18Ardennes and 1861, 2 each of 1812, 1846 and 1824, and 1 each of 1837, 1817, 1858, 1826 and 18EU. I believe that a second 1817 was played but abandoned after two players went bankrupt and a third was about to do so! (not too surprising when its a variant that involves short selling). This year saw a runaway win by newcomer Juho Spellman, with four wins out of five, plus one solid second. Congratulations to Juho on an excellent performance this year.

Dominion

58 games were entered into the tournament (numerous others were played). With six victories out of six games played Chris Martin was once again unstoppable. The results for the minor placings revealed a flaw in the scoring system that will have to be corrected for next year.

Treasure Hunt

35 players took part, with "One Phil and Five Fillers" coming out on top. Congratulations to Phil Hannay, Mark Fox, Mark Rigby-Jones, Robin Walters, Gordon Aickin and Dan Lester, who will therefore be setting the Treasure Hunt next year.

Pop Quiz

Eight teams took part in this year’s Pop Quiz, which was made all the more difficult by the PA System provided by the University sounding like an A.M. Radio. But never-the-less, the usual suspects rose to the top, lead by "Don't Call Me Shirley - It's Carly" - Carly "Shirley" Selby, Ben Haytack, Martin Burroughs and John Harrington.
