The Weekly Weasel -- Week of Dec. 2

Here's the latest news from the Weasels.
 
Ladies Night at the Lion
The Myth Chaser was at it again a couple of weeks ago at the Red Lion. This time, Nate Cockerill went in search of the fabled board of the Valkyries, and he nearly found it. While he fell short of the all-female board, Cockerill did establish a Weasels record by persuading three members of the fairer sex to play Dip with us. Two of them were playing for the first time, and they finished first and second in the center counts. Check out the game summary and reaction from one of the players.

Here's the latest news from the Weasels.

Rumors
According to rumor, there was a Diplomacy game Thursday night at the Red Lion. Rumor also has it that three women played. But as a reputable news organization, we deal in facts, not secondhand news, and the facts as we know them are that one player cancelled the night before and another failed to show up, which jeopardized the game. If you were there and can confirm that the game happened, please do so. And send along the chart. Until then, I'm just going to lie down in the tall grass.

(The results just came in. Thank you, Nate. Check out the game summary. Also, this article was much more clever in its first draft, when I thought Monday Morning was on the Rumors album.)

Game on at the Lion
Thursday's game at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square is full. As always, standbys are welcome. If there's sufficient interest, perhaps we could start a second board. The game will start at 6:30 p.m. and end no later than 11.

Here's the latest news from the Weasels...brief for the especially busy Weasel.

Need One for Tomorrow's Game
We have six for tomorrow's game at the Red Lion. We don't need a mathematician to tell us that we're one short. ... Of course, if said mathematician also happened to play Diplomacy, we'd take him!

How about joining us for an evening of Dip and Drinks at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, 4749 N Rockwell in Chicago. The game starts at 6:30 and will end no later than 11. Please sign up.

Picking someone to pull for in this World Series is a bit like deciding who you'd like to win the Weasel Royale besides your son and yourself. The Cardinals just won a couple of years ago, and the Red Sox are the new Evil empire. I'm cheering for baseball and a Game Seven.

Speaking of Game Seven, my mom was in labor in Lawrence, Massachusetts, during Game Seven of the 1967 World Series between these same two teams. Carl Yastrzemski won the Triple Crown that year, and a lot of people suggested that my parents name their baby boy after him. My dad had other plans, and fortunately, neither parent was a big baseball fan at the time.

Slow news week, so we'll keep this one extra brief.

A Champion Will Be Crowned
The 2013 North American Diplomacy Championship will be this weekend at Tempest in a Teapot in Silver Spring, Maryland. My son Kevin and I will be driving out for the event, and it looks like Nate Cockerill and/or Dan Burgess will be joining us for the road trip.

Brawl Opener a Knockout for Cockerill
It may be lights out for the competition after just one game in the 2014 Bar Room Brawl Series. Beefy Nate Cockerill landed a knockout punch with the club's first ever Bar Game Solo. Click here for photographic evidence, the supply center chart, and the stunned reaction of one of the players. Legends do exist. Nate both proved that and is proof of that.
