The CODCon Open, the event that put tournament Diplomacy back on Chicago's map, returns for a 12th installment, April 14-15 at the College of DuPage in west suburban Glen Ellyn. We will be using a central clock with drop dead timing and Swiss Pairings to seed our boards. To reach the sweet Swiss Alpy mountaintop, you have to beat the best!

When: April 14-15, 2018.
Where: College of DuPage's Student Resource Center, 425 Fawell Blvd., Glen Ellyn, IL 60137. Room SRC1004. Directions can be found here or on the CODCon official website at www.codcon.com.
What: A three-round Sum of Squares Diplomacy tournament. All three rounds count for score. It only takes one round to be eligible for awards. The highest combined score will win the tournament. Rounds will be timed and feature a central clock, drop-dead timing, random end-times, and Swiss Pairing for seeding the boards. The official 2018 CODCon Diplomacy Open Rules can be found attached to the bottom of this post.
How much: The tournament entry fee, payable below, is $15; $10 for students. Paid-up Weasels get a $5 discount. The CODCon convention charges an additional $5 for a one-day pass and $7 for two days. You can save a dollar on the convention fee by preregistering at www.codcon.com.
