Who is ready for new season of WCW Diplomacy? Bryan Pravel and I are going to be assisting more with the site and taking over the Weekly Weasel. You'll still get a fair dose of Jim articles (and pun headlines), but we're hoping to add more awesome content on strategy, "What would you do?" scenarios, game recaps, traveling Weasels, wonderful moments in Weasel history, and much more.
If you have anything you'd love to see on the site, drop a comment or chat with us about it at the next bar game. If you buy us a beer at said bar game, I can guarantee your idea will at least be mentioned, if not implemented, on the site. We will also take Belgium (and promise that's the only time we'll make that joke this year.)
Hit the jump for your season kickoff news!

First up, we have GERMANY, because of Octoberfest and, more importantly, because it is your writer’s favorite country.
All is fair in love, war, and Windy City Weasel diplomacy. Game 313 featured roommate conflict, stabbed girlfriends,
3 4 5 new players, and a first time player topping to board in a highly instructional (and highly amusing) bout. Using 18 minute timing (with adjudications off the clock), newcomer (and new to Chicago) Mick Johnson raced to a 10 center board top as France when the draw ended it in 05. The final center counts were:
