The Weekly Weasel — Week of Jan. 7

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Hip to be Square
The Weasels will ring in the New Year with a game this Saturday at hipster John Gramila’s home in Logan Square. The game is full, but we can always use standbys, so speak up if you’re available. We should have a game report for next week’s Weekly Weasel. In the meantime, check out the lineup. It features two more newcomers, including another Meetup recruit.

Another Brawl at the Lion
We’ve lined up another game at the Red Lion. It will be Jan. 23 from 6:30 p.m. until no later than 11. We’d like to field two boards. Who’s in?

Diplomacy World Cup
There will be a Chicago team in the Diplomacy World Cup, and it was initiated by some guys we don’t know. So, if you want to fight for our city’s honor while also potentially recruiting some new players for the Weasels, then sign up. Registration is now open, and you can do so here.

The tournament will be hosted by ASCII King Games on the AQMN "Aquaman" Diplomacy Adjudicator. It’s strictly a team event, fashioned after the soccer  World Cup. Interested Weasels can learn  more at the event website or its Facebook page or at the Diplomatic Pouch.
