The Boroughs is back, baby!

#1 Post by abgemacht » Fri Oct 12, 2018 5:16 pm

Hello all,

I'll be hosting the Boroughs Diplomacy tournament Feb 22-24, 2019 as part of TotalCon in Marlborough, Mass.

Info on the Boroughs: https://sites.google.com/site/boroughsdiplomacy/2019

Info on TotalCon: https://tabletop.events/conventions/totalcon-33

This will be the 7th F2F tournament I have run. I have hosted two webDip F2F tournaments in Mass over the past ten years and people have had a great time. If you're interested in playing in a tournament, consider dropping by!

Pro tip for those attending - TSA is not a big fan of the best country trophies. Check a bag.

We do give out hands down the best trophies, though.

Not that it matters to bo, since he wins so infrequently...

Unfortunately for webDippers, abge doesn't give out participation trophies.

Never been to a F2F tournament before...sounds like it might be worth a trip out to Marlborough

My first F2F *ever*, much less tournament, was the Boroughs and it was transformative!

I've been on the hook to go to Massachusetts for a long time to Dip, and this might be the year I can make it work! Pics of the awards, or is it a surprise? I've had more than one trophy that TSA had a problem with ....
