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 including games such as Alhambra, Carcassonne Combo, Goa, Princes of Florence, Puerto Rico, Ra, Settlers Combo, St. Petersburg, Ticket to Ride and the hot new Euro Game to be announced at this year's WBC. Combo events will use many of the available games for that system with the base game acting as the default version. A Wild Card event including games such as: Attika, Euphrat & Tigris, Lost Cities, Medici, Power Grid, San Juan, Tikal, Taj Mahal, Transamerica and Traumfabrik with more Wild Card titles to be announced soon.

BPA plaques will be awarded for each event, best team , 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 during the entire duration of the convention.
