PBEM Tournament Overview Last updated June 28, 2022.

The BPA is about gamers of all levels coming together to enjoy the nuances of a favorite game, and the camaraderie this fosters, from round one to the vaunted Championship Match. Too bad its only once a year. It doesn't have to be. Email is allowing many players who thought they were too busy to rediscover their hobby and keep their games sharp in between conventions. The BPA is going year round with PBeM Tournaments for *selected games. For prospective PBeM GM's, please read the BPA PBeM GM Guidelines

Now, with its own annual BPA Award, PBeM tournament laurels have been reviewed by the Board. The Board has determined that with the addition of the Praetor Award, the maximum laurel level that can be achieved in a PBeM toiurnamnet will be the laurel level that the same event achieved at the last completed WBC.
