The deadline for 2017 GM commitments is WEDNESDAY, March 15. I have updated the Preliminary Events/Orphans list at http://boardgamers.org/wbc17/orphans.html

Don't just "plan" to submit the Event Form (http://boardgamers.org/wbc_gmeventform.html) ...actually do it by the deadline :-)

Interesting...

Last year at the "final" push we had only 10 century/trial events to lock up. This year it's 21. And a bunch of vendor games too.

I know the Canucks have been slower than usual this year and we will get forms in for

Las Vegas
Splendor
Dominion

But that still leaves a ton of events that are in danger of being dropped. Maybe this year's WBC will be a little more streamlined.

There are 21 alternate events with willing GMS lined up. I think if people aren't willing to GM what's already there, we will have plenty of events to plug in the gaps with.

Kaarin, Mage Wars Arena event form was submitted on 3/12.

Looking forward to another convention of spell casting in the arena.

Thanks!

I heard from Bob Stribula that he is working on the form for Empire Builder.

I'll get the Settlers form in shortly.

Rich,
If you need an assistant GM for Settlers, let me know. I owe you one for Euroquest.

Since no one seems to have heard from Jason Levine, I've offered to step up to GM Liar's Dice if he ends up not submitting a form. I just need one other Assistant GM so I can submit the event form tonight.

My current worries are for Battle Cry and Race for the Galaxy. I'd volunteer, but I'm already a first time GM on another event, so taking on two more seems like a bad idea, right?

Yes. One thousand times yes. More than one as a first time GM is a terrible idea.

I paid 100 geek gold, and all I got was this lousy overtext

I submitted one just in case that was rejected because:
- It would be my third event to GM. (I would gladly step aside for another volunteer.) It would been my "day off" from GMing anyway.
- Don informed me there already was someone who volunteered as a "conditional GM."

It should be there in the end.

Settlers form has been submitted.

Thanks for the offer Mike. I don't play in the tournament, so assistants aren't required, but if you want to help wrangle players signing up, I'll take it.
