The Great Canadian Board Game Blitz (GCBGB) is a circuit of board game tournaments held at Canadian game conventions and retailers. You play several rounds of games over the span of eight hours, collecting points based on your finishing rank in each game. The finals are held each summer in Toronto at Fan Expo. You can check the schedule below for upcoming events to see if there is a championship near you.

We ran our fourth finals event at FanExpo 2013 in August. John Dupont was crowned the Great Canadian Champion of 2013. This 2013 finals concluded our fourth season, and we are looking forward to many more!

To sign-up for an upcoming blitz, please send us an email with subject "GCBGB Sign-up". In the email, please give us your name and tell us which blitz you would like to sign-up for. If there is a Facebook or Meetup event for the blitz, then marking yourself as attending is another way to sign-up. Lastly, you can follow-up on the BoardGameGeek thread indicating that you plan to come.

Thanks to Christian Monterroso, we also now have a BoardGameGeek Micro Badge: .
