PBeM fun is free to current BPA members. Others may qualify with a $10 Email membership in the year the event starts. All multi-day paid attendees to WBC are current BPA members for the balance of that calendar year. You need not keep your membership current in order to finish a PBeM event. Players may join the BPA throughout the year. See the BPA Terms page for details.

BPA members who would like to see an email tournament for their favorite game are encouraged to step forward as the GM of such an event. BPA does not run tournaments. Rather, we are an organization of gamers lending support to one another so such events can happen. No one cares as much about your hobby as you do. Get involved.

  March 2017 Update  
     
  PRO GOLF TIME: Warm up your dice for the zany Seventh Annual BPA Pro Golf PBeM tournament to commence, appropriately enough, on April 1st. Check out the details at http://www.nktelco.net/bdmonnin/Pro_Golf_PBeM.html and enter via email at bdmonnin@nktelco.net.  
     
  MARCH MADNESS ENTERS MARCH: Less than half of the field remains. There are now four teams in the Elite Eight (Mike Pacheco, Don Greenwood, Bob Hamel, and Bruce Monnin). The survivors include both a #1 seed (the best team remaining in the tournament), and a #43 seed (the fourth worst seed remaining). Check out the progress at http://www.nktelco.net/bdmonnin/mm-brack-2017.htm.  
     
  KILFARA SWEEPS WAR AT SEA: Darren Kilfara won his third BPA tournament and second War At Sea PBeM title by going unbeaten in the 11th BPA PBeM tournament over a field of 27. Darren kept his unblemished record spotless with an overwhelming British victory in the Final, scoring 10 POC by Turn 5. Also scoring laurels were Ed Menzel, Bob Hamel, Mike Pacheco, Andy Choptiany and Jonathan Lockwood in that order. See the account at http://boardgamers.org/yearbook16/was.html#pbem; with the updated laurels list at http://boardgamers.org/eventhistory/was.html.  
     
  KOEHLER TAKES HERE I STAND: It took Stephen Koehler 15 years to follow his third BPA tournament win with his fourth, but he did it in style with a 60-laurels win over five rounds and a field of 68 in an event that started two years ago in April of 2015. Also taking laurels in the Final were Dennis Mishler, Michael Dauer, Zac Willoh, David Kiefte and Brian Kluger in that order. See the account at http://boardgamers.org/yearbook16/his.html#pbem and the updated HIS laurels at http://boardgamers.org/eventhistory/his.html.  
     
  PATHS OF GLORY ENTERS SECOND ROUND: No less than 52 matches are underway in Round 2 of the BPA’s largest email tournament as eliminations begin. 24 matches were between folks who racked up a win in Round 1 and 28 matches involved those who lost in Round 1 as well as ten new reinforcements joining the event this round. Tom Drueding, as the most recent former champion, after Nick Anner, is on the sidelines having accepted the bye this round. As usual, GM Tom Gregorio sets the gold standard for PBeM GMs with an entertaining and informative newsletter keeping everyone up to date. If you’re interested in POG, you should get on Tom’s mailing list at gregorit@yahoo.com.
