facts about us

#Season 14

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.

Five Tips for Weasel Moot IV

Written by

Weasel Moot IV is less than four weeks away. Here are five helpful tips to prepare you for the big event (which will be held Sept. 24-26 at the Quality Inn in Burr Ridge, 300 S Frontage Road).

  1. Negotiate support from your loved ones into Weasel Moot IV. If you don't have any loved ones, you're ahead of the game...although we feel for you.
  2. Obtain an awesome hat for Friday night's Hat Night. That's right, we're wearing hats for the first round on Friday night. And the best hat will win a prize, so go get a good one. No excuses. None of us is too cool to participate. This is a Diplomacy tournament, after all.
