Conception Deception, Oct. 6 and 7
Since last year’s kick-off event at the small Conception gaming convention was such a huge success for the Weasels, with three boards including our first ever variant, we’re going to do it again this year. Tony Prokes will again run standard Diplomacy on Saturday and Colonial Diplomacy on Sunday. The dates are Oct. 6 and 7, and we’ll start at Noon both days.

Season Eight Tips off Sept. 13
Our eighth season of Windy City Weasels Diplomacy tips off with a Guthrie’s bar game on Sept. 13. We’re holding the game in honor of Australian transplant Peter McNamara, who will be in town from the Bay Area on business. We need three more players to fill the the first board. We’ll start at 6:30 p.m. and end no later than 11.
Pin Belgium on the Donkey
We need three more for the birthday game at my home in Little Italy on Oct. 13. Who’s in? Dip is more fun in party hats. The game starts at 11 am..
Royale Set for Oct. 27
The 2012 Weasel Royale club championship game will be Oct. 27 at Dan’ Burgess’ home in Downers Grove. For the fourth straight year, we’ll also field an Undercard game. In each of the past three years, the Undercard board-topper went on to qualify for the next Royale. This year’s board-topper could be you. Five spots left. Sign up today. The fun starts at 11 a.m.
Central Shuffle Concludes at Tempest
The fourth and final step in the 2012 Central Shuffle will be Tempest in a Teapot in Silver Spring, Md., Oct. 5-7. Check out the PTKS website for more information. To qualify for the Central Shuffle crown, players must compete in at least one of the Chicago events (CODCon and WDC at Weasel Moot VI) and at least one of the East Coast events (WBC, which was earlier this month in Lancaster, Penn., and Tempest). So far, Christian Pedone of Philadelphia is the only qualifier. He won WBC and also played at WDC.
