WBC 2010 is CLOSED to further events.

Century Events

Century: 107 events compose the combined Century & Legacy 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 107 slots were pre-determined by 2009 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, 2010, deadline. Failure of a GM to submit a suitable event form for the event by the deadline will drop it from the Century Group.

All events require a BPA member acting as GM to submit a satisfactory Event Form no later than Feb. 28, 2010, 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.

Events will be held for their prior GM until notified otherwise or Dec. 31, 2009, whichever comes first. Events without a GM commitment on Dec. 31, 2009, are open to any current member who submits an acceptable Event Form.

To make a GM Commitment, become a current BPA member of Sustaining level or higher and submit a completed Event Form before Feb. 28, 2010. 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

Eligible Continuing Trials: Those events that failed to make the Century Group by 2009 attendance standards or new events proposed by any willing GM who becomes a current BPA member by Feb. 28, 2010. These events were listed on the December Annual Membership ballot and the 25 with the most membership votes by Jan. 1 were eligible to be run at WBC 2010. Any vacancies in these 25 due to lack of a GM commitment will be filled by BPA based on other Alternate GM commitments on hand by Feb. 28.

Events will be held for the prior GM until notified otherwise or Dec. 31, 2010, whichever comes first. Events not claimed by a GM by Dec. 31 are open to any current member who submits an acceptable Event Form. NOTE: 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.

Alternate Trials: These are additional events submitted by GMs for inclusion on the annual December ballot for consideration of the membership as one of the 25 Trial events decided in the December Membership Drive. New proposals must be submitted to conventiondirector@boardgamers.org no later than November 30th of each year to be included on that year's membership ballot. BPA and its sponsors fill any vacancies from this list of events for which a potential GM has submitted a completed event form. Alternates may be either events new to WBC or returning after an absence, or Trials from the previous year which failed Century and Trial election. Alternates will be selected to fill vacancies based on a number of factors. The order in which they are listed here is not one of them.

 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 on Wedneday through Saturday, ending at 2 pm on 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.
