History & Results

The Boston Massacre Diplomacy tournament was founded by Melissa Call in 2003, and run by her for the next six years until she moved back to her homeland Down Under. It was then taken over for several years by Alex Amann, before he too moved away. To keep the Massacre name alive, Christian Pedone started the Philadelphia Massacre Diplomacy tournament in that city, while Diplomacy in Boston struggled to find an organizer.

In 2014, Alan Levin, primarily an online player on WebDiplomacy.net, stepped forward and started The Boroughs Diplomacy tournament in Westborough. This ran for several years and was instrumental in rebuilding the Boston hobby. In 2016, The Boroughs moved back to Boston (well, Cambridge), and Philadelphia graciously returned to Boston the "Massacre" name (Philadelphia now runs as the Liberty Cup Diplomacy tournament).

After the 2018 tournament, Alan stepped down as TD of Boston Massacre, and handed the reins over to its current organizer, Randall Lawrence-Hurt (Alan is still involved in the Boston hobby, and has taken over the TotalCon Diplomacy tournament in Marlborough).

As the latest TD for this venerable tournament, Randall looks forward to making the Massacre bigger and better every year, with a focus on growing the local hobby while encouraging travelers to come see what Boston has to offer!
