Welcome to the Weekly Weasel, which this week is the unofficial Tempest hype thread.
THE AFOREMENTIONED TEMPEST HYPE THREAD
Five brave weasels of good standing and stately demeanor voyage to our nation's capital this week. Four of the new guard will be roadtripping and making a monumental first appearance at Tempest. The venerable Prime Weasel Brian Shelden, by the power entrusted to him by Weasels and credit card miles, will be flying. The scheming starts Friday-should be an excellent weekend of stabs and songs (spoilers for the team round). We'll be sure to post recaps of our experiences. Also, if anybody knows of something to do in Cleveland on a Thursday night, seriously hit up the comment section.
I'm serious about the Cleveland thing. Ohio is the WORST. We're desperate.
THE WISE OLD WEASEL ARRIVES (FASHIONABLY LATE) TOMORROW
(update: it will apparently be more fashionably late. Look out for this next week)
As we mentioned whenever this was last posted, tomorrow we will be discussing the play of Germany within the club. Some statistics will be provided to tee up your strategic insights on the Fatherland. Out of towners/ friends of the Weasels are more than welcome to chime in. In the spirit of both Columbus Day and Octoberfest, your writer will discuss the importance of the Italian-German alliance. Looking forward to hearing all your awesome ideas on Germany.
What's up guys? Lots of fun news this week, had an excellent start to our brawl season with 5 newbies attending.
Da roof. Da Bears. Daaaaaplomacy.
Sunday at 11 your writer is hosting a house game in Lakeshore East. There will be gorgeous views of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier, a case of 312, and all sorts of stabbing and general merriment. It's going to be awesome.
We are currently at 9, if we get to 12 we can play 2 boards. Sign up here.
2017 season kicked off last week, Bar Room Brawl starts on Wednesday. Let's get to it.
BRING IT BACK NOW BRAWL
Brawwwwwwwwwwl yeah. Wednesday marks our first bar game-and it's gonna be a big one. 2 boards! We're at 15 players now, but a couple players have mentioned that they would prefer to sit and coach newbies. One hop at this time (6:30pm) over to the Red Lion this Wednesday, 9/14. It's about to get funky.
Who is ready for new season of WCW Diplomacy? Bryan Pravel and I are going to be assisting more with the site and taking over the Weekly Weasel. You'll still get a fair dose of Jim articles (and pun headlines), but we're hoping to add more awesome content on strategy, "What would you do?" scenarios, game recaps, traveling Weasels, wonderful moments in Weasel history, and much more.
If you have anything you'd love to see on the site, drop a comment or chat with us about it at the next bar game. If you buy us a beer at said bar game, I can guarantee your idea will at least be mentioned, if not implemented, on the site. We will also take Belgium (and promise that's the only time we'll make that joke this year.)
Hit the jump for your season kickoff news!
