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 2022 performance and Board vote under the Legacy rules (see BPA FAQs) and required only the commitment of a BPA member to GM the event between December 5, 2022 and January 31. 2023.

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 January 31, 2023. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines.

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 between December 5, 2022 and January 31, 2023. 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

The Trial Events will be determined during the Trial Voting between December 5, 2022 and January 31, 2023 . The Top 25 vote getters will be listed below and will be included in WBC 2023. Although we will try to honor requested timeslots, all GMs of Trial events must be willing to run their events when scheduled by the BPA. Failure to do so may disqualify the event.

The games listed are the final games submitted for the trial ballot.

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 held at WBC 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 Ken Gutermuth at or Megan Byrd at
