The Weekly Weasel — Week of Jan. 20

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels. It’s a light issue, as we didn’t have a game last week (for the first time in nine weeks) and we’re gearing up for the DipCon at WAC this weekend.

February Is for Stabbers
We’d love to get two boards for our bar game at the Red Lion on February 5. We posted the opening last week, and the first six seats went quickly. Who else wants to play?

CODCon is Coming
Our eighth annual CODCon Open Diplomacy tournament is early this year. The three-round tournament will be April 5-6, 2014, at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn. It’s not necessary to play in all three rounds–although we hope you will–and it only takes one round to qualify for awards, of which there will be plenty: plaques for first through third place and best play of each country, prizes for fourth through seventh, and maybe some special awards.

CODCon is the Chicago area’s longest-running Diplomacy tournament. It’s a fun event, and the con offers some great people watching. I hope you’ll join us this year.

You can find more information about our tournament, including the schedule, here. Learn more about the CODCon convention here. When you decide to come, be sure to respond on Meetup here.

Hosts Still Needed
In the next week or two, we’d like to announce the March Madness schedule, so we need some hosts to step forward. All we know at this point is that we’re going to try to field a game at the Concentric gaming convention in Itasca on March 8 or 9. In addition to the Concentric game, we’d like to offer at least two March house games, so let us know if you can host.

Upcoming Games


  • Feb. 5 at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, starting at 6:30 p.m. until no later than 11. Have six.

Sign up for games at the website, on Meetup, or by emailing your faithful War Weasel (which is now Dan Burgess,

Important Dates

  • April 5-6: The eighth annual CODCon Open Diplomacy tournament at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn.

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. Thirteen people already have paid their dues. Thanks, Guys!

That’s all for this week.
