Euro Quest is a unique blend of tournaments and open gaming.
Why: Euro Quest provides a competitive forum for the
play of popular "European" style boardgames in a focused,
in-depth format not available elsewhere. All tournaments will
be run to provide multiple opportunities to compete in the same
game with a minimum of three preliminary heats preceding the elimination
The tournaments to be included are: Agricola, Thurn and Taxis,
Race for the Galaxy, Ra, Princes of Florence, Power Grid, Puerto
Rico, Settlers of Catan, St. Petersburg, and Ticket to
Ride Combo, along with the Hot New game for 2009: Dominion. A Wild Card event including games such as: Alhambra, Can't
Stop, Caylus, Goa, Pillars of the Earth, San Juan, Stone Age,
Vegas Showdown, and Yspahan and a brand new title released
at Essen to be announced Nov. 1. Expect to see three or
four more titles added as the con draws near depending on GM availability.
BPA plaques will be awarded for each event and best overall
individual performance - providing plenty of laurel opportunities
for those who want to improve their standings in BPA's annual Caesar competition.
Open Gaming: Dedicated open gaming space will be provided
in the main gaming hall during the entire duration of the convention.
Vendors: Z-Man Games and Canton Games will be on hand, and gamers can expect to see some of the hottest
