March Madness: Caesar, we’ve got your back!

March Madness is back for a seventh year as the Windy City Weasels renews its annual campaign to return the month of March to its original pastime: Backstabbing. Take a look at these game openings, check your calendar, and sign up. Check back often, as we’ll add news games here as they crop up. And consider bringing a friend to a game. We’ve welcomed 41 players to the Weasels during the past six March Madness campaigns.

Dip at Concentric
When: March 8 at 11 a.m.
Where: The Concentric game convention at the Holiday Inn Itasca, 860 W Irving Park Road in Itasca.
What: One board of Diplomacy hosted by Tony Prokes. I’m not sure of the fee, but presumably there will be a modest one. This event will be similar in size to WolfCon but with more boardgamers present, so it could be a good recruiting opportunity.
