The title story is about a lonely man who lives in an ancient castle and who hasn’t seen another human being in years. Eventually, he leaves his castle and goes wandering the countryside. Soon, he finds a new castle, and there’s a party going on inside. He barges in on the party, but all the guests run away in horror.

We had to set up guard stones, practice takeouts, and make sure all the opposing stones were hogged.
