PATHS OF GLORY 2016 TOURNAMENT UPDATE: The tournament is nearing the completion of Round 7 of the event that started in 2016. Three of six matches have completed with Ted, Tom D., and Tom G. moving on to Round 8. Matt is the eliminator for this round, and thus ineligible to advance, but he can still knock out our defending champ, Nick. The next round will start in March; we may need another eliminator so experienced folks with a desire to match wits with the best should stay tuned. Keep up to date with the 2016 Tournament Page and the standings page. WASHINGTON'S WAR UNDERWAY: The 2019 Washington's War PBeM tournament started January 1st with 48 players. Round one is scheduled to end April 2nd. As of March, 17 games are complete with 11 British and 6 American Victories. Round 2 should start on April 3rd unless the remaining 7 games are completed earlier. Of note Washington was only captured in one of the 17 completed games. A British victory as expected. The French entered in 11 of the 17 completed games, with 4 games as American victories and 7 still as British Victories. BPA PBeM REMINDER: ... all of the above PBeM fun is free to current BPA members. Others may qualify with a $10 Email membership in the year the event starts. All multi-day paid attendees to WBC are current BPA members for the balance of that calendar year. BPA members who would like to see an email tournament for their favorite game are encouraged to step forward as the GM of such an event. BPA does not run tournaments. Rather, we are an organization of gamers lending support to one another so such events can happen. No one cares as much about your hobby as you do. Get involved.
