The Weekly Weasel — Week of Oct. 14

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

If the Moniker Fits…
Nate Cockerill is a man of many monikers. Nate the Snake. Cock. The Myth Chaser. Beefy. The Big Oozy.

Now we can add one more: The North American Champion.

Cockerill posted lackluster results in the bookend rounds at last weekend’s North American Diplomacy Championship at Tempest in a Teapot in Silver Spring, Maryland. Sandwiched between them, however, he soloed for the second time in as many weeks. This one won him the 46th annual DipCon championship.

Out of the DipCon and into the Brawl
There’s no rest for the weary … or the North American Champion. Cockerill will be back in action tomorrow night at Guthrie’s Tavern for our second game in the 2014 Bar Room Brawl Series. We have seven but can always use standbys, so speak up if you’re available. The game starts at 6:30 and will end no later than 11.

Upcoming Games


  • Oct. 16 at Guthrie’s Tavern, starting at 6:30 p.m. until no later than 11. Have seven.
  • Oct. 26, the Undercard game at the Weasel Royale, starting at 11 a.m. Have four (or five, if we force Dan to play).

Sign up for games here, on Meetup, or by emailing your faithful War Weasel (which is North American Champion Nate Cockerill, for the time being).

Important Dates

  • Oct. 26: The 2013 Weasel Royale club championship and the Fifth Annual Undercard Game.

That’s all for this week.

    Completely love Oozy. Was wondering why I hadn’t heard it before, but it’s perfect. His piece advancement can be ooze-like: slow and persistent
