globes centered on the field. The Teams started in
their usual positions and became a battle royal in the
midfield. Each egg was worth 7 Points, and each player
possessing one at game end also received a dragon patch for
his personal accomplishment. Blue team only fielded
three players for the night game, yet was able to secure 3
of the 7 eggs. An amazing coup. Red was able to secure

from behind victory. But they would need to capture 5
Flag Stations. The Green team was already holding four
Cards, two of which happened to be jokers. In
capturing the 5 stations and getting these cards they would
be able to create 3 cash-ins or 90 points, just enough
to win. Red holding just on Risk card needed only to
capture two locations and the luck of the draw to create a
set. This battle was centered Europe, where Aaron of
the Red team was able to hold out against incredible
