We are planning a great series of board game tournaments for the weekend, some will be one-off options but we want to bring special attention to:
2019 Maryland State Board Game Championships
We are proud to once again host the Maryland State Championships for a number of board games, all officially sanctioned by their respective game companies! These prestigious events include a number of prizes: a trophy, a copy of the game to keep, and a free ticket to DEXCON 22 happening July 3-7, to compete in the Northeast Regional Championship for greater glory! Oh, and if you win at the Northeast Regional Championship you will receive a free ticket to GenCon to compete in the U.S. National Championships!
Each tournament will take about 3 hrs and involves playing 5 rapid-fire rounds of each game, cutting to semi-finals after the 3rd round, and ending in an exciting final round!
The 2019 Championship games will be: Coup, Diamonds, Dimension, ICECOOL, Nevermore, New York Slice, Pyramid Poker, Skull King, and Wordsy
Meeple League Tournaments
We are also excited to welcome the Meeple League, the international organizers of competitive board gaming events that span the year. You will be able to win a trophy if you take down one of their tournaments, as well as earn Meeple League tournaments points, allowing you to compete against people around the world for the title of Player of the Year. Their tournaments focus on traditional competitive-style Euro board games.
Tournaments they’re running at BFGCon this year are: Azul, Splendor, and Ticket to Ride
