What? Euro Quest is a unique blend of tournaments and open gaming.

Why? Euro Quest provides a competitive forum for the play of popular “European” style boardgames in a focused, in-depth format not available elsewhere. All tournaments will be run to provide multiple opportunities to compete in the same game with a minimum of three preliminary heats preceding the elimination rounds.

Tournaments will include games such as Caylus, Goa, Power Grid, Princes of Florence, Puerto Rico, Ra, Settlers of Catan, St. Petersburg, Thurn & Taxis, and Ticket to Ride, along with the Hot New Game to be announced at the World Boardgaming Championships. A Wild Card event will include 15 games. The first eight are Alhambra, Can't Stop, Carcassonne, Lost Cities, Louis XIV, San Juan, Traumfabrik/Hollywood Blockbuster, and Vegas Showdown. Six more titles will be selected in September. The last Wild Card title, the Hot new Essen game, will be selected on Nov. 1.

BPA plaques will be awarded for each event and best overall individual performance—providing plenty of laurel opportunities for those who want to improve their standings in BPA’s annual Caesar competition.

Open Gaming? Dedicated open gaming space will be provided in the main gaming hall for the duration of the convention. It begins at noon on Friday, Nov. 9, and ends at midnight on Monday, Nov. 12.

Vendors: Games Surplus and Z-Man Games will be on hand with copies of the hottest new Euros fresh from Essen. In addition, Our Game Table will be at EuroQuest on Saturday.
