The Weekly Weasel — Week of 9/1

Who is ready for new season of WCW Diplomacy? Bryan Pravel and I are going to be assisting more with the site and taking over the Weekly Weasel. You’ll still get a fair dose of Jim articles (and pun headlines), but we’re hoping to add more awesome content on strategy, "What would you do?" scenarios, game recaps, traveling Weasels, wonderful moments in Weasel history, and much more.

If you have anything you’d love to see on the site, drop a comment or chat with us about it at the next bar game. If you buy us a beer at said bar game, I can guarantee your idea will at least be mentioned, if not implemented, on the site. We will also take Belgium (and promise that’s the only time we’ll make that joke this year.) 

Hit the jump for your season kickoff news!


Getting Hot In Here


Summer may be over, but the season is just heating up with DipWarming! New sneak member/ Weasel Whip Brian Shelden hosts in his Loop apartment on Friday, September 9th at 6pm. We’re at 8 now, can we get to two boards?


First of Brawl…

Our bar room brawl kickoff game is Wednesday, September 14 at the Red Lion. Come for the game, stay to help me think of a year’s worth of brawl puns.


The Royale Treatment

Sunday, October 16 is championship day for the Windy City Weasels. We need 5 more for the Undercard at Dan Burgess’s lovely Downers Grove home. Dan is an excellent host, with beer taps in the basement that in no way contributed to your writer’s misordering himself out of a board top at last year’s Undercard. The fun starts at 10am.


For all the above, check out the game openings.


A-Chi to DC

We’re going to provide more updates on Weasel participation in the traveling hobby. Right now, at least 5 Weasels will be headed to Tempest in early October, with at least 2 headed to Carnage in November.


Give our boards a good home

We need hosts for November and December house games! Get in touch with the Sneak to set up a game. 


That’s all for now folks. 


Join the discussion!

Find out more about an upcoming event or article, talk smack before a game, brag about your board top, or most likely, ask what on earth your fellow Weasels were thinking!
