Game Openings: Two Bars, One Club

Written by

Make your plans to join us on Thursday, Nov. 18, as we attempt to play multiple boards in different locations for the first time. One of those locations is familiar: Guthrie's Tavern, our club's favorite haunt. We'll play at least one board of Diplomacy there that night. The other location is new, but it should feel familiar. We're taking our Guthrie's act on the road to Ballydoyle in Downers Grove. Two bars, one club. Sign up below.

Update: Due to a scheduling conflict at Guthrie's and an early Friday morning flight for the War Weasel the Guthrie's game is moving to Wednesday night, Nov. 17!

Game Opening: Armistice at Guthrie's

Written by

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the guns of Europe fell silent and World War I came to an end. At 11 p.m. this Wednesday night, we'll commemorate that moment by dropping our pens to end a Diplomacy game at Guthrie's Tavern. Originally scheduled for Chicagoland Games, we changed venues to take advantage of the holiday on Thursday.

Armistice at Guthrie's
When: Nov. 10 at 6:15 p.m.
Where: Guthrie's Tavern, 1300 W. Addison in the Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago.
What: One board of Diplomacy.

While the Royale raged upstairs at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove, the Undercard game in the basement kicked off Season 6. The game ended after 1909 in a four-way, E/F/R/T draw. John Gramila, playing Turkey, topped the board with a 12-center Turkey, earning 47.059 points out of a possible 100 in the Sum of Squares system, which we're using to score games in Season 6. The final center counts were: 

As announced at the Weasel Pyle on Aug. 14, season six officially will commence with an undercard game at the Weasel Royale on Sept. 11.

The Royale and the Undercard take place at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove, beginning at 11 a.m. While players in the Undercard will enjoy Dan's chili and his hand-craft beer, they'll have to fend for themselves, as Dan will be busy running the Royale game. In addition, the Undercard players won't have access to Dan's networked conference rooms.

If you'd like to participate in the Undercard, sign up below!
