Middle Earth Pre-Con
Feb. 10, 2007

Mon., July 30 through Tues., July 31, 2007
Lancaster Host, Lancaster, PA

Welcome 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.

WBC 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.

Our 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.

For other event details, see the WOR (War of the Ring) Preview.

Tribune 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.

WBC special room rates at the Lancaster Host apply to all days of the pre-con. See our travel and accommodations page for details.
