Four New Faces, Same Old Board-Topper
Our first bring-a-friend event was a hit last week at the Red Lion. Ten people showed up, and we initiated four new Weasels. The board-topper, however, was a familiar face. See who it was and check out the game summary.

Bring a Friend to the Red Lion
It looks like we're certain to have one board for Wednesday's bring-a-friend event at the Red Lion, but we're shooting for two. We have two first-time players signed up and another beginner, so while you don't HAVE to bring a friend, it's a good opportunity to do so. If we can get to 14, we'll put the new players on one board to break them in gently. Make your plans to join us.

And it's Doc by a Nose!
For the first time since the Grand Prix started in 1999, the final event actually mattered.

Now, certainly in the past, Grand Prix hopefuls have done battle in the final event and even have had a chance--however remote--to win. Never before, though, had a pursuer actually capitalized on that chance. Until now.

Cockerill Gets 'em All
Just like the old Weasel proverb, Nate Cockerill got 'em all in Season 7. He led the league with five board-tops en route to a fourth-place finish and a third straight berth in the Weasel Royale club championship, which took place last Saturday at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove. And he topped that board, too, to win his first Chicago title. Congrats to Beefy Nate Cockerill, our 2012 club champion and Bull Weasel.

The Pac-Man Topeth
Wocka, wocka, wocka. Pete McNamara -- a.k.a. Regular Pete McNamara, a.k.a. P-Mac, a.k.a. the dot-gobbling Pac-Man -- cruised to a 14-center Russian board top in Game No. 196, played Saturday in Little Italy. Check out the game summary and Pete's perspective here. Wocka, wocka, wocka.

Slow Start to Season Eight
After fielding two boards on Opening Night at Guthrie's on Sept. 13, we've run into some trouble filling games. We pulled the plug on the Sept. 26 Red Lion game, and last weekend at Conception, no one listened as Tony Prokes tried to spread the Gospel.

We should have better luck this week. We're currently at four for the Guthrie's game on Wednesday, beginning at 6:45 p.m. It will end no later than 11 p.m. And we already have nine for the birthday game at my place in Little Italy on Saturday. We need five more for two boards. We'll start at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

Busy Week for the Weasels
This coming weekend begins a busy stretch for the Weasels of four games in eight days. The fun starts on Saturday at the intimate Conception game convention at the College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn. Tony Prokes will run standard Diplomacy, beginning at Noon. On Sunday, he'll run Colonial Diplomacy, again starting at Noon.

This is the same basic formula he followed last year, when he picked up four players at the con. It would help to have two or three Weasels out there to help fill boards. If you're able to play, let me know, or drop Tony an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Let's Get Ready to Rumble!
This season, we're introducing a new series to our league play. In addition to counting as regular club games, bar games will now count toward the new Barroom Brawl series, as well. Using our standard Sum of Squares scoring system, we'll track each player's best three bar games. At the end of the season, we'll invite the top seven Brawlers to compete in a championship game, which, of course, will be a time-limited, week-night bar game. Click here for more details.

Cock and Kelly Take the Openers

Chris Kelly topped the other board with eight centers, hauling in a more modest 35.6 points. Check out the supply center charts here.
