Out with the old, in with the older

Written by

Just prior to the start of the final round at Weasel Moot V, we moved one of the tables onto the meeting room's dance floor to create more space. As fate would have it, Chris Martin, who has a PhD in dance, landed on that board.

The former world champ sparkled in his natural habitat, twisting and turning and spinning his way to a resounding 17-center board top. The 75.26 points were enough to vault him past our own John Gramila, who posted the only solo of the tournament, and become the Moot's first two-time winner. Congratulations to our Alpha Weasel alpha, who is now our Alpha Weasel epsilon, as well.

The Friday night round at Weasel Moot V (Sept. 9-10) will once again be Hat Night. The best hat, as voted by the attendees, will receive a prize.

It's Friday night, and you're playing Diplomacy. You're not too cool to participate, so find a funny hat, and bring it to the con. (But leave your spear at home.) In the meantime, check out the growing list of attendees.

Players can also look forward to a team tournament in the Saturday morning round. Teams of three, each member playing on a separate board, will compete for top honors, with the winners receiving a prize.
