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.

Competitions are scheduled in 150+ games consisting of the Century Group, Legacy events, Trial Events (selection by member votes), Junior events, and Vendor/Sponsor events.

Special Events demonstrating new or upcoming games as well as gaming related seminars add to the nine-day Convention.

WBC 2017 will run from July 22 to July 30.

You need not be an expert player. 
While some WBC gaming events are for experienced players,
many are designed for beginners or are coached for first-time players.

We hope you can participate!
