facts about us

Our Diplomacy league is the most active in North America. We average more than two league games per month in addition to Tournament play. We score all of our games using the Sum of Squares scoring system, and each player's best three scores count toward the season standings. We are known for our fierce competition, strong traditions, upstanding character and trustworthiness, and the propensity for Turkey to open to Armenia.

Undercard at the Weasel Royale

Written by

If 10 years of Windy City Weasels Diplomacy has taught you anything, it's that tradition matters to us.

This fall, we'll renew the tradition of fielding a league game during the Weasel Royale club championship game. In past years, this Undercard Game has launched many a successful Royale bid for the following year, so if your campaign fell short this year, think about playing in the Undercard to give yourself a leg up on next year's competition.

The Undercard Game at the Weasel Royale
When: October 24 beginning at around 11:15 a.m., immediately following the power selection ceremony for the Royale.
Where: Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove, 5409 Benton Ave.
