Better Ted than Dead

Written by

How many published authors does it take to host a Diplomacy game? Just one. Join Ted McClelland--author of Young Mr. Obama, The Third Coast, and Horseplayers: Life at the Track--for a game of Diplomacy at his place in Rogers Park.

All work and no play makes Ted a dull boy. Let's give the guy a needed break.

Better Ted than Dead
When: June 2 at 11 a.m.

Banner night for the next generation!

Written by

If last night at Guthrie's Tavern was any indication, the future (of the Weasels) is all right. We had 23 people turn out on a Wednesday night for an event we scheduled less than two weeks ago. The turnout resulted in our first ever three-board session at a bar event. And the best news of all for the future of our club: Our three board-toppers all joined the Weasels this season.

Nyuck, Nyuck, Nyuck: Kelly stooges board

Written by

In the version of history we wrote yesterday at my home in Little Italy, 1901 was the golden age of slapstick comedy. The hijinx started in Fall 1901.

First, my Austria misordered support for Albania to Greece. I ordered the support from Budapest instead of Serbia. Consequently, instead of simply being an irritant that signaled intent, Turkey's (Chris Kelly) move to Greece denied me the center and a crucial second build.

Then, Italy (Don Glass) ordered Naples to Tunis instead of Ionian to Tunis. That left him without a build.

Dos Plaines debut

Written by

Tony Prokes hosted our first Diplomacy event in Des Plaines yesterday, and it was a smashing success. We had two boards, plus an interested observer who dropped by for a few hours. The group included four novices, so we had a big board and a little board.

Game No. 175 was the big board. The sharks played in Tony's basement, which is a nice gaming lair. And Tony continued two trends. For the second straight house game, the host drew Italy and topped the board. For a time, it even looked like he'd better Lokken's massive Italy on the 3rd, and largely at Lokken's expense. His Austria was out by 1902.
