“We shall crush them all like snakes in our backyard!”

In two weeks, the Windy City Weasels will hold Weasel Moot IV, our eighth tournament. In those eight tournaments, we have hosted traveling players from St. Louis, Milwaukee, D.C., the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Detroit, Ohio, Indiana, New York, New England, Houston and even Paris. We’ve been visited by players from every major hobby on the continent. Every major hobby, that is, except
the Pacific Northwest’s.

We sent players to Seattle’s WACCon from 2006 to 2009 and to Vancouver for the WDC in 2007. The Pacific Northwest has reciprocated by turning its back on us. Well, they shall ignore us no more, because today, by the power vested in me as your War Weasel, I declare a blood feud on them.

Maine’s blood feud of 2008 will be nothing compared with this one. Our blood feud encompasses not just the Pacific Northwest’s Diplomacy players, but also:

  • The Mariners.
  • The Seahawks.
  • The Trailblazers.
  • Grunge music.
  • Starbuck’s.
  • Microsoft.
  • Flannel.
  • Buz Eddy.
  • And rain.

We shall crush them all like snakes in our backyard!

The War Weasel has spoken. Come now Weasels, start your scheming…

    I’m also considering a blood feud against the Minnesota Twins. If you have an idea for a blood feud, post it in a comment below. Remember, you have to be logged in to comment on articles.

    And before you get any ideas, I refuse to declare a blood feud against Mar S Par-Bur.

    I do approve of the blood feuds against Microsot and all the sports teams (since I don’t really care about them). I do oppose the one feud against Starbucks. Additionally, I recommend blood feuds against all known violators of the Prime Directive (hint nudge wink), tornados, chick flicks, Risk (the board game), the CTA Blue Line, and the letter ‘Q’.

    The Northwestern hobby, upon being notified of the aforementioned blood feud, has a message for War Weasel O’Kelley.


    You may need to scroll down to the WACCon thread. FYI, MadMarx is the top player in the site in terms of points, but having played him I’d categorize him as a Mr. Nice Guy who gets people not to stab him by making lengthy Andy Bartalone-esque moral speeches about why lying is despicable, etc. Wouldn’t stand a chance against a Weasel.

    Also, some people on the site say they met Weasel Adam Berey, who flew up to Seattle to take part in the fun and games!

    Wow. Thanks, Aash. Reading that thread really drives the point home that there are Internet players out there who don’t know to look for us. Aash, would you be willing to publicize our tournaments on that message board? Maybe we can smoke out some more Chicago players.
