July 30 through Tues., July 31, 2007
Host, Lancaster, PA
to the first mini-con featuring dedicated play of Fantasy
Flight's War of the Ring. Not actually part of WBC
proper, Middle Earth is sort of an opening skirmish for those
who can't get enough of a good thing.
attendees have long lamented the many conflicts between their
favorite games at WBC. So many games, so little time…Since
so many of our attendees have large investments in travel costs
to attend WBC, there has always been a certain element which
wanted a longer convention so that they could get more bang for
their travel buck while increasing the number of events they
can play. The problem with this is how to scratch this itch without
infringing on those for whom a longer convention is just out
of the question.
solution was to select a few events for early play with long
playing times but non-overlapping fan bases that could benefit
from uninterrupted swiss-style play without outside distractions.

members may freely partake in any and all of BPA's Pre-Cons
during the two days preceding WBC. Play
at Middle Earth for non-Tribune/Sponsor level members requires
a separate registration fee of $10 for BPA members pre-registered by
July 21, 2007, or $20 non-members and everyone who registers
after July 21, payable to the BPA, 1541 Redfield Rd, Bel Air,
MD 21015. This fee can be paid separately or in addition to
other WBC fees noted on the WBC pre-registration form. If paid
at the door, the higher fee will apply. Pre-registration
is highly recommended.
special room rates at the Lancaster Host apply to all days of
the pre-con. See our travel and accommodations
