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.

The Windy City Weasels cordially invite you to Chicago -- home of the Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks, our beleaugured president, and the hobby's best-named Diplomacy tournament -- for Weasel Moot IV, to be held Sept. 24 to 26 at the Quality Inn in southwest suburban Burr Ridge.
The three-round tournament will begin Friday night at 7 p.m., with two rounds on Saturday, and an awards ceremony at 10 a.m. Sunday. The hotel is conveniently located near both Midway (15 minutes) and O'Hare (20 minutes) airports, and the room rate is just $79 per night, which includes breakfast.
More details will be on our website ( and in your mailboxes shortly. For now, just mark your calendars and check out what some of last year's attendees had to say.
Hope to see you there!
Jim O'Kelley
Prime Weasel and Probable Tournament Director, Weasel Moot IV
Melinda Holley (Postal Hobby legend): Thanks for making this past weekend so much fun. I was totally shocked to make the top board, so that was just icing on a very nice cake. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to Weasel Moot IV.
Pete McNamara (The Chicago version, as opposed to Australian Peter McNamara, who currently resides and plays Dip in New England): Weasel Moot was a blast. What a great tournament!
Vince Lutterbie (Former postal hobby zine publisher): Thanks to all for a fabulous time!
Peter Yeargin (Then a bright-eyed Diplomacy newcomer): I had a lot of fun.
Gary Behnen (1991 DipCon Champion): Had a great time getting pounded!
Edi Birsan (Diplomacy's Yoda): Had a great time. I will be urging everyone to go to your event.
Jonathan Hill (Diplomacy's Goodwill Ambassador): We got some single-minded, stubborn mother f$#!ers in Chicago.

Having worked for a membership organization for the past 19 years, I'm a firm believer that members don't owe the club anything -- it's the other way around. That said, we really need you to attend this year's Weasel Moot. Here's why.

In mid-August, Peter Yeargin (and possibly I) will be traveling to the Hague in Europe to present our bid for the 2012 World Diplomacy Championship. It's likely that our bid will be uncontested and that we'll win by default. However, if and when we win the bid, the Europeans and other hobbyists will be watching us to see whether our tournament is worth their time and money to attend. We can demonstrate that it is by building on our successes of the past three years.

Last year, we had 14 boards and 38 players. We can top that this year if each of us attends at least one round and preferably two or all three. Let's show the world that we can put on a great world championship.
