The Boardgame Players Association (BPA) sponsors the annual World Boardgaming Championships® (WBC) where about 1,500 people from around the world compete to be named champion of their favorite games--from hex-based traditional wargames to Euros, sports and train games, and more. Based on event attendance the previous year, BPA members select the 100 or so games (the “Century Group”) in which competitions are scheduled. By vote, they select 25 addition "Trial" events, which may include newly released games.
While some WBC tournaments are for experienced players, many are designed for beginners or are coached for first-time players. We hope you can participate!
At WBC, you'll also find open gaming, an auction, some of the best vendors in the hobby, programs for Juniors and Teens, seminars--including activities for non-gaming spouses, and more.
