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

Our ninth annual Weasel Royale club championship game will be October 16 at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove. We'll once again field an Undercard game, which will count as a regular league game. Last year's shared board-toppers in the Undercard both went on to qualify for this year's Royale, so it's a great opportunity to steal a march while the heavyweights duke it out in the Royale. Plus, it's hella fun. Who's in?

Undercard at the Weasel Royale
When: October 16 at 10 a.m.
