WBC 2017 Orphans/Preliminary Events List

WBC 2017 is now closed to new events.

WBC is now finalizing its 2017 schedule which will be announced in mid-May.
The list below is temporary and only identifies events eligible for inclusion based on 2016 performance,
the completed 2017 membership vote and the participation of GMs and sponsors.

The kiosk hallway funnels hotel guests on their walk to the convention center -
reassuring them they are reaching the WBC gaming nirvana.


Century Events

Century: These events compose the combined Century & Legacy Group of featured events that 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. Slots were pre-determined by 2016 performance and Board vote under the Legacy rules (see BPA FAQs) and require only the commitment of a BPA member to GM the event by the March 15 deadline.

Failure of a member GM to submit a suitable event form for the event by the deadline will drop it from eligibility. All events require a BPA member acting as GM to submit a satisfactory Event Form no later than March 15. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines. All requested event times are approximate and subject to change when the final schedule is released.

Events are not held for their prior GM but are awarded based on merit determined by past performance, timeliness of event submission and format. Events without a GM commitment at this time 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 March 15. Century events will be run within two hours of the requested time slot or the GM will be consulted for an acceptable alternate time.

The end of the Kiosk hallway leads to registration and entertains passersby
with histories of past tournament results and upcoming schedule details, qualifications and results.

Trial Events

Top 25 Trials are the top 25 selected by members casting their votes on the Membership ballot between Dec. 1, 2016, and Jan. 31, 2017. 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 March 15, 2017. Although we will try to honor requested timeslots, all GMs of Trial events must be willing to run their events when scheduled by BPA. Failure to do so may disqualify the event.

Events are not held for their prior GM but are awarded based on merit determined by past performance, timeliness of event submission and format. All events require a BPA member acting as GM to submit a satisfactory event form no later than March 15. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines. All requested event times are approximate and subject to change when the official schedule is released. Although we will try to honor requested timeslots, all GMs of Continuing Trials must be willing to run their events when scheduled by BPA. Failure to do so may disqualify the event.

Vendor/Sponsor Introductory (New) Trials: Anytime prior to March 15, each vendor and/or Sponsor may add one new Trial event above and beyond the Top 25 Trials determined by the membership vote. Such New Trials will automatically fall into Century or Continuing Trial classifications the following year based on their 2017 performance. These events must be for games which are in print by the March 15 deadline and for which BPA has received an Event Form from a willing GM. Publisher must submit a copy of the game at the time of the event submission. Events chosen by the CD from the Alternates List to replace otherwise qualifying events without GM commitments are also listed below.

Juniors Events

Juniors Events: Volunteer GMs are always needed to run free events for children aged 12 & under in the WBC Juniors room. 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. You cannot assume children will bring their own copies of the game. The GM should come prepared to instruct children how to play the game. A BPA Room Monitor is always present to help maintain order but is not always available to assist children in playing the game. Recruitment of assistants to aid you is strongly advised. Volunteer Assistants are very much needed. To volunteer, contact Laurie Wojtaszczyk at
