2007 WBC Orphans
March 6, 2007

The deadline for changes has passed, and we are now officially closed to new events and change requests. We are currently creating the schedule for WBC 2007. Please be patient while we complete this effort. The information below was accurate as of Feb. 26, 2007. Event Forms were submitted after that date. Thus, this information does not reflect the final status of any event.

Century Events

Century: 104 events compose the Century Group of featured events which are supported by multiple prize levels ranging from two to six plaques and a Centurion shirt based on a formula using the most recent statistics of attendance and player hours. Those 104 slots were pre-determined by 2006 performance and Board vote under the Legacy rules and require only the commitment of a BPA member to GM the event by the Feb. 28, 2007, deadline. Failure of a GM to submit a suitable event form for the event by the deadline will drop it from the Century Group. Only Century Events, Continuing Trials or Alternates, and Vendor/Sponsor Introductory Trials with GMs committed by Feb. 28, 2007, will be run at WBC 2007.

All events require a BPA member acting as GM to submit a satisfactory Event Form no later than Feb. 28, 2007, or the event will not be run. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines. All requested event times are approximate and subject to change when the final schedule is made.

To make a GM Commitment, become a current BPA member of Sustaining level or higher and submit a completed event form before Feb. 28, 2007.
*Century events will be run within two hours of the requested time slot or the GM will be consulted for an acceptable alternate time.


Trial Events

Trials: Events that failed to make the Century Group by 2006 attendance standards but that are among the top 25 vote recipients in the annual December Membership Drive Survey. Any vacancies in these 25 due to lack of a GM will be filled by BPA based on other GM commitments on hand by Feb. 28. Although we will try to honor requested timeslots, all GMs of Trials Events must be willing to run their events when scheduled by BPA. Failure to do so may disqualify the event.

Vendor/Sponsor Trials

Introductory Trials: Each Vendor and Sponsor may add one new Trial beyond the 25 Trials ceiling. Such New Vendor/Sponsor Trials may be introduced at the rate of one per booth space/sponsorship until March 1, 2007. New Trials could become Century Events or Continuing Trials in 2007, based on their attendance and the player-hours devoted to them at WBC 2007. New Trials must be for games that are in print by the March 1 deadline. Publishers must submit a copy of the game at the time of the event submission.

 Juniors Events

Juniors Events: Volunteer GMs and Assistants run free events for children aged 12 and under in the WBC Juniors room between 9 am and 9 pm daily. (Shorter hours on Tuesday and Sunday.) Any game is eligible provided it is suitable for children of that age group and available in sufficient numbers to allow all children present to play; however, only a limited number may be run. The GM should come prepared to instruct children how to play the game and should be prepared to run a tournament. A BPA Room Monitor is always present to help maintain order but is not always available to assist children in playing the game. Volunteer Assistants are very much needed. To volunteer, contact juniors@boardgamers.org.

 Teen Events

Teen Events: NEW for 2007! BPA will be offering a social program for teens—ages 12 through 16—who are registered for the World Boardgaming Championships. One game will be offered each evening (Wednesday through Saturday) from 9 p.m. through midnight in the Heritage Rooms. Although no plaques will be offered, there will be prizes for winners. It is an opportunity for teens to meet other boardgamers in their age group, have fun, and practice strategies that will allow them to compete in Century and Trial events. Volunteer GMs and Assistants are very much needed. To volunteer, contact teens@boardgamers.org.
