2013 WBC Orphans—Preliminary Event List
April 15, 2013

WBC 2013 is CLOSED to new events.

WBC is preparing events for the 2013 season. The list below is temporary and only identifies events eligible for inclusion in either the Century or Trial membership ballot based on 2012 performance and 2013 membership vote. Additional Trial events by qualified sponsors and vendors will be considered for addition to the schedule prior to March 15. Note that the times below are requested times and are subject to change and as such are only rough estimates of the form the final schedule will take.

Century Events

Century: 108 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 108 slots were pre-determined by 2012 performance and Board vote under the Legacy rules and require only the commitment of a BPA member to GM the event by the March 15, 2013, 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, 2013. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines which were updated in 2008 with several substantial changes. All requested event times are approximate and subject to change when the final schedule is released.

Events are no longer 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, 2013. 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: New events or those which failed to make the Century Group by 2012 attendance/GM obligation standards. These events will be added to the Membership ballot during the annual December membership drive and may be voted into Trial status by members casting their votes before 2013. The 25 with the most votes by Jan. 1 are eligible to be run at WBC 2013. 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, 2013.

Events are no longer 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, 2013. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines which were updated in 2008 with several substantial changes. 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.

Alternate Trials: Those events that fail in the December Membership Drive vote but were submitted with a completed event form by willing GMs for inclusion on the ballot for consideration of the membership. Alternate events are used as replacements for any qualifying Century or Continuing Trial event which fails to draw a satisfactory GM commitment. Such events are also occasionally selected by sponsors to become eligible. New proposals must be submitted to conventiondirector@boardgamers.org no later than Nov. 30 of each year to be included on that year's membership ballot, although any received by March 15 will be given consideration as replacements for events without a GM commitment. New events may be either events making their first appearance at WBC or returning after an absence.

Vendor/Sponsor Introductory Trials: Each vendor and/or Sponsor may add one new Trial event above and beyond the 25 Continuing Trials ceiling anytime prior to March 15, 2013. Such New Trials will automatically fall into Century or Continuing Trial classifications the following year based on their 2012 performance. These events must be for games which are in print by the March 15 deadline. Publisher must submit a copy of the game at the time of the event submission.

 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 assme 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 juniors@boardgamers.org.
