Hat Night is back!

Written by


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.

Yeargin salvages club honor, wins Weasel Moot!

Written by

Only one Chicagoan cracked the top 10 at Weasel Moot IV, but he did so in convincing fashion. Peter Yeargin posted large board tops in the first and third rounds to win the Moot and become our new Alpha Weasel. He's the third straight Weasel to win the Moot and also the first player to capture two best-country awards since Matt Sundstrom and Don Williams turned the trick in Moot I.

We had four boards in each of the three rounds and a total of 37 players at the tournament, which was played Sept. 24-25, with an awards ceremony on the 26th. The numbers included 13 travelers, an all-time high for us. Seven of the travelers were playing at the Moot for the first time.

Here are the final standings:
