Desperately seeking...

Written by

We're desperately seeking two people with nothing better to do this Saturday than play Diplomacy. We're currently stuck on five and are in danger of cancelling a second straight game. In more than 5 1/2 years of Windy City Weasels Diplomacy, that's never happened. Help us break our mini-slump by signing up for this game, which is set to start at 11 a.m. at John Gramila's home in Logan Square.

Enter the Dragon

Written by

The club welcomed new recruit Dragon Graygol into the fold in the traditional Weasel fashion last night at Ballydolye Irish Pub in Downers Grove -- with multiple stabs to the back.

Peter Lokken (what's new?) topped Game No. 139 with a 14-center Turkey. The game ended by time limit after the Fall 1908 turn in the following center counts:

The Preece is right

Written by

Back in January, Prime Weasel Chris Davis and Nate Cockerill conducted an instructional Diplomacy game for the Chicago Board Game club. Thursday night at Ballydoyle, their efforts started to pay off.

Barry Preece, the first of the new players from that teaching game to play with us, topped Game No. 137 with a 14-center Turkey. In the process, he wrested Best Turkey from John Gramila, who had held it since the first game of the season. The game ended after the Fall 1907 turn in the following center counts:

The Prime is ready for prime time!

Written by
Peter Yeargin and Christopher M. Davis were the board toppers in Games 135 and 136, played last night at Cinner's Chili Parlour & Cocktail Lounge. Yeargin tacked on a few points to his club lead. Prime Weasel Davis, meanwhile, leapt into sixth place, knocking Royale fixture Matt Sundstrom out of the money, at least for the time being. Here's a look at the final center counts for both games:

Three Petes and a Lady

Written by

As Pete McNamara noted in the aftermath, "There were no easy dots" in last night's game at Matt Sundstrom's home in Glenview. The board was loaded with four of the season's top seven players. The others included a Royale combatant from last year and one of the club's dogged young guns. But the player who successfully navigated the minefield of Peters and Sundstroms and Nates (oh my) was last year's Rookie of the Year Amanda Baumgartner. She earned her first ever board top, and first positive score of Season 6, with an 11-center Germany. The final center counts were:

Another game, another near solo. This time, it was Nate Cockerill pushing Austria to 17 centers before being stopped by an F/G stalemate line. Game No. 133, played March 20 at Ted McClelland's home in Rogers Park, ended after the Fall 1912 turn in the following center counts:
