More About the World Boardgaming Championships:
I have attended six World Boardgaming Championships (2005 through 2010), all at the Lancaster Host in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The organizers and volunteers do an incredible job of making sure that events run on time and as efficiently as possible.
If you're interested in tournament-based gaming, the WBC is the event for you. Many of the events are open to players with limited or no experience in the games being played, although some are recommended for expert players only.
There are also areas for open gaming, some game publishers have areas where they show off new and recent releases, game demos provide opportunities to learn new games, and a vendor room allows players to shop for games and related accessories.
