WDC Final Standings

Tournament Game Reports

Five rounds of Diplomacy, 93 players, 52 boards, and rave reviews. The World Diplomacy Championship at Weasel Moot X was a smashing success.

For the complete standings, including Best Country winners, go here. It will take a bit longer to add the charts and team tournament results.

Congrats to Canadian Chris Brand, our new world champion, and to our club for delivering a fantastic experience for all our attendees. Now, who's up for a bar game on Wednesday with guest of honor Tim Jones, one of the three travelers from Australia who attended WDC?

WDC: Seven things you need to know!

Club News

Here are seven things you need to know about this weekend's festivities.

  1. The hashtag for the weekend is #DejaMoot. Use it in your social media posts.
  2. We will be playing in Room 418 at Roosevelt University's vertical Wabash Campus, 425 S Wabash.
  3. If you're not staying in the venue, give yourself plenty of time to get to Room 418. There's a security checkpoint in the lobby.
  4. There is a cafeteria on the second floor in the vertical campus.
  5. If you're staying in the dorm, the elevator from the 14th floor skips the fourth floor. Get off on the 5th or 6th floor to either transfer to an elevator that willl take you there or to take the stairs.
  6. The Welcome Party is tonight from 8 to 10 p.m. at Bar Louie, 47 W Polk St. That's 3 blocks south of the vertical campus (left out the doors), and 1 1/2 blocks west (right on Polk).
  7. Your team rosters for Saturday morning's team tournament are do before the start of play for Round Two Friday night.

More info about the tournament, including the rule set and schedule, can be found here.



Who are these guys?

Club News

There's a been a lot of talk among the Chicago regulars lately about which generation of Weasel the new class is. I think it's the fifth. But, to simplify and as a courtesy to our out-of-town guests, I thought I'd classify the Weasels who will be participating in the World Diplomacy Championship at Weasel Moot X in three (well, four) groups, as follows:

Things to do around Grant Park

Club News

Bryan Pravel moved to Chicago in the winter on a contract assignment. He found our club thanks to DiplomacyCast, dove in, and has been a regular ever since. WDC will be the longtime online player's first face-to-face tournament.

Since he lives near the venue and is new to the city, he was our perfect choice to draft a list of things for you to do while you're in town for WDC. His list is here. Enjoy.


Welcome Party set!

Club News

The details are set for Thursday's WDC Welcome Party. It will be from 8 to 10 p.m. at Bar Louie, 47 W Polk. Polk is three blocks south of Congress. Trivia mogul Dan Burgess will host a Diplomacy-themed trivia game for us. We'll be in a private room at Bar Louie. Guests will pay their own tabs.

After trivia, a few of the locals will lead an expedition to an obscure bar on the north end of Grant Park where we'll delight each other by singing karaoke.

Welcome to Chicago! Please join us and help us welcome the out-of-towners to Chicago for the World Diplomacy Championship at Weasel Moot X!
