Description Edit | History

WBC-The Board Game is a game for 3-5 players, who will share the fun of the week-long World Boardgaming Championships, contesting convention events in a quest for Laurels and competing for the ultimate prize: The title of Caesar. Players must manage their time wisely. They must remember to carve out a moment between games to sleep and eat while dodging convention pitfalls – including other competitors, unfortunate circumstances, and the occasional dreaded phone call from home. After six days of gaming -- when the games are all packed up and the competitors are headed for home – WBC players compare accumulated Laurels. Highest score is Caesar, a proven boardgaming champion worthy of praise!

The six turns of WBC-The Board Game, each one representing a day at the convention. Each day/turn proceeds in the following sequence first the Day’s Events are determined, Players then Schedule their day (ie pick which Events to attend), next the Players in turn order select specific Events or spaces to resolve (ie allow Event attendees to compete in that Event or spend time at a recovery space such as Pool Side hoping to recover some much needed Energy or satiate their Hunger). Finally, at the close of the day/turn all Players participate in one final Event, the Late Night Event, where success often comes at a price.

Additionally Players will be assigned an Alter Ego card that represents their “Player Type” at the convention. Player types range from the Eurogamer, to the Emerging Talent, the Superior Players, or the Late Night King. Each Player type provides two abilities to the Player, one a typical benefit common to the Alter Ego Type being played and one a unique benefit for that Alter Ego.

Finally, convention attendees compete at WBC for a variety of reasons. WBC-The Board Game represents this with Convention Focus markers. The Convention Focus is a secret objective the Player is attempting to complete by game’s end and depending upon their level of success rewards the Player with a number of additional Laurels.

Each copy of WBC-The Board Game includes the following:

- One 22-by-34” game board.
- W “What’s Your Game” deck, featuring many of the
games you’ll play at WBC.
- B “Build Your Skill” deck, featuring mostly
useful items which will aid your quest
to be Caesar.
- C “Competitors” deck, featuring many of the
competitors who will provide a helpful
boost -- or stand in your way --
throughout the week.
- 55 player cubes, 11 each in five colors.
- 15 dice, three each in five colors.
- 60 convention focus markers.
- 95 laurel tokens.
- Six two-sided alter-ego player aids
- One turn marker.
- One 12-page rulebook.
