The Weekly Weasel — Week of Nov. 25

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

According to rumor, there was a Diplomacy game Thursday night at the Red Lion. Rumor also has it that three women played. But as a reputable news organization, we deal in facts, not secondhand news, and the facts as we know them are that one player cancelled the night before and another failed to show up, which jeopardized the game. If you were there and can confirm that the game happened, please do so. And send along the chart. Until then, I’m just going to lie down in the tall grass.

(The results just came in. Thank you, Nate. Check out the game summary. Also, this article was much more clever in its first draft, when I thought Monday Morning was on the Rumors album.)

Who’s up for gaming this weekend at WolfCon? The event will be all weekend at the Irish-American Heritage Center, 4626 N Knox Ave. We’re going to try to field a Diplomacy game Saturday afternoon, starting at 1. Check out the website for more information, and please know that WolfCon charges $15 at the door for a one-day pass.

Dip Still Free in Rogers Park
If the $15 for WolfCon is too rich for your blood (or even if it isn’t), there’s a free game at Ted McClelland’s home in Rogers Park on Dec. 7. We need three more players to make that happen. Who’s interested? The game will begin at 11 a.m. Ted has a great space for Diplomacy, and this is the first opportunity to play a house game since the Undercard on October 26.

Get the Vote Out
The North American Diplomacy Federation is conducting a vote to fill the two at-large positions on the DipCon Society’s Administrative Committee. I am one of four candidates. I believe anyone who attended two Grand Prix tournaments this year is eligible to vote. (CODCon and Weasel Moot both count.) You may cast your vote here. You must have a Yahoo, Google or Facebook account to participate.

Upcoming Games

We hope to send out our annual e-appeal for 2014 dues in the next month or two. In the meantime, you can use the PayPal link we set up for 2013 to pay your 2014 dues. We’re still charging $25, $10 if you’re a student. Nine people have already paid their dues; thanks.
