Master of the House
Every Weasel knows that Prime Weasel Dan Burgess would rather stir chili in a pot than trouble on a Dipomacy board. He typically hosts at least five games per year, not counting the Royale, but he only plays in those games when absolutely necessary. Such was the case yesterday when hipster John Gramila went AWOL.
The Bicentennial Game
Yesterday’s game was our club’s 199th. That’s just club, or "league," games. That number doesn’t count tournament games or our annual Weasel Royale. Among those 199 games, we’ve played just one variant–Colonial Diplomacy at Conception last year–and two six-player games. The other 196 have been classic seven-player games on the standard board.
- Dec. 18 at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, beginning at 6:30 p.m until no later than 11. Have seven for our 200th game. Need six more for No. 201!
- Dec. 30 at Matt Sundstrom’s home in Glenview, beginning at 11 a.m. Full. Standbys needed.
- Jan. 12 at John Gramila’s home in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago. Have six.
- Dec. 18: Our 200th game celebration at the Red Lion!
That’s all for this week.
