Tournaments

Tournaments
  • The CODCon Open: Our oldest tournament by two months, the Open is held annually in April at the small CODCon gaming convention at the College of Dupage. Our focus at this tournament is on introducing tournament Diplomacy to our players, but we usually draw a traveler or two every year, and the event is part of the North American Grand Prix circuit. We held CODCon for the first time in April 2007.

  • Weasel Moot: Our signature tournament is Weasel Moot. This event tends to be more competitive than CODCon and usually draws players from both coasts and points in between. In recent years, as the event has grown in importance on the Grand Prix circuit -- the Weasel Moot champ went on to win the Grand Prix in 2010, 2011 and 2012 -- we've welcomed two to three boards' worth of travelers. Weasel Moot even hosted the World and North American Diplomacy Championships in 2012 and 2016. We held Weasel Moot for the first time in June 2007, and since then, the event has bounced all over the calendar. At various times, we've held it in July, August, September and November. The tournament champion holds the title of Alpha Weasel until the next year's Moot.

Windy City Weasels Code of Conduct

The Windy City Weasels are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for everyone to experience the joys and agonies of Diplomacy. Diplomacy is a collective human endeavor. We may be competitive, manipulative, and even dastardly, but we are all here to have fun.

To that end, please observe the following:

  1. Be a human being. Treat everyone with the respect they deserve, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, or ability to play Diplomacy.
  2. Refrain from harassment of any kind. This includes unwanted physical contact, threats of violence, unwelcome sexual attention, and comments related to personal identity or appearance.
  3. Avoid becoming intoxicated to the point that you cannot play or are disturbing the ability of others to enjoy themselves.

Violations of the code of conduct should be reported as soon as possible to an official club representative, including the tournament director for tournaments, the host for house games, or the War Weasel or any other Sneak member. All communications will be strictly confidential. The club representative will mediate in good faith and take whatever action he or she deems appropriate to resolve the situation, including pausing a game, censuring players, or requiring players to leave the event without refund. The Sneak will review all reports of inappropriate behavior and take further action if needed, including suspension from future league or tournament play or expulsion from all club activities.

Any attempt to abuse the code of conduct in order to gain advantage in any game will not be tolerated. This code of conduct applies at any club event, on the board and off.

The War Weasel (Brandon Fogel, 773-909-2992) and the Sneak (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) may be contacted at any time for any reason. All communications will be strictly confidential.
