The Weekly Weasel — Week of Oct. 6

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Must-See Diplomacy
Our first week-night house game last Thursday at Peter Lokken’s home in Logan Square was a rousing success featuring two more new faces. That makes eight so far this season after only 21 new recruits all of last year. Check out the game summary and reaction from the board-topper.

Who’s in?
We have seven for our first Red Wednesday game at the Red Lion this Wednesday, but two are first-timers from the Chicago Game Lovers Meetup group. We’re only batting around .500 with sign-ups from that group, so we could use two more in case one or both doesn’t show. You will play for sure if you sign up. Who’s in?
New Issues
The latest issue of Diplomacy World hit the web last week, and episode 31 of DiplomacyCast is on the podwaves. Check them out.

Upcoming Games
October 8 at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, beginning at 6:30 until no later than 11. Have seven but could use two more just in case either of the new people doesn’t show. You will definitely play if you sign up.
November 1, the Undercard Game at the Weasel Royale, beginning at 11 a.m. at Dan Burgess’ home in Downers Grove. Have four. Three more needed.
November 12 at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, beginning at 6:30 until no later than 11. Have three. Four more needed.
December 10 at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, beginning at 6:30 until no later than 11. Have one. Six more needed.

Important Dates


  • November 1: The Weasel Royale and Undercard Game at Dan Burgess’ home in Downers Grove.
  • Remember, the second Wednesday of every month is Red Wednesday at the Red Lion. These games are scheduled through 2015 and will always start at 6:30 p.m. and go until no later than 11, so get ’em on your calendar.

Finally, a big Weasel thank you to the 29 people who paid club dues for 2014. Their support makes so much of what we do possible: The Meetup site, the website, our annual club awards, and the awards for the Royale. Thanks, Guys!

That’s all for this week.
