Attending The World Boardgame Championships  

The BPA’s largest event is the annual World Boardgaming Championships® (WBC) where about 2,000 people from around the world compete to be named champion of their favorite games. By vote, BPA members select the 100 or so games (the “Century Group”) in which competitions are scheduled. 

But, how do I attend? Glad you asked.

To attend the WBC, you need only become a member of the BPA (Boardgame Players Association). That's it. When you become a member, you are purchasing your WBC ticket. To do that, click on the register button at the top and download and complete the form.

There ARE multiple levels of membership though - and that's where confusion may arise. The main thing to consider when signing up is "Do I want to come for the entire 9 days or do I want to come for only a couple days?" Those options are spelled out on the Pre Registration form every year.

If you still have questions about attending - please ASK us. Whether it is on our Facebook page, or on our BoardGameGeek forum, someone will be happy to help you.
