facts about us

#Season 14

Our Diplomacy league is the most active in North America. We average more than two league games per month in addition to Tournament play. We score all of our games using the Sum of Squares scoring system, and each player's best three scores count toward the season standings. We are known for our fierce competition, strong traditions, upstanding character and trustworthiness, and the propensity for Turkey to open to Armenia.

As a reminder, we will be using Swiss pairings for this tournament. The first round will use random pairings but after that you will be assigned a board based on your scores. At the start of rounds two and three, the top scores will be assigned the top board, the next seven will go to board two, and so on. This means that to be the best you have to play the best. It looks like a fun matchup!

Will youth be served? We have five high school kids on that list, plus two more in college and one recent grad. Six of them have played at CODCon before.

CODCon is a wonderful event for introducing players of all ages to tournament Dip.
