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.

I don't think so. ... Are you playing all three rounds? This is shaping up to be our biggest CODCon Open since the first. We should be able to hit eight boards.

It's just about 48 hours before tip-off, and we're expecting a total of eight boards for the tournament. That's great news for the future considering that a board's worth of solid regulars are unable to attend this year.

Also, according to chatter on the St. Louis list, Mike French, who won the first two CODCon Opens, is about 75 percent likely to join us for the weekend.
