Hall of Champions

We wouldn't be a proper empire if we didn't occasionally host a tournament. After all, tournaments are a chance for empires to show off their opulence. A chance for ordinary people to prove their might and skill through superhuman achievement. And, if The Hunger Games and The Running Man are any indication, a chance for the competitors to then overthrow the empire for whose amusement they originally battled. Wait, um, actually forget that last one. 

The point is, we like to run tournaments. And the winners of those tournaments are immortalized for all time (or until we run out of money and can no longer afford website hosting fees) here in the Hall of Champions. Check out some of our past winners and keep an eye on the Upcoming Events page to participate in the next competition...

Parker Poche showed up for the first BoardGame Empire tournament at our new digs in Porter Square and quickly staked her claim as champion of all of Catan. She scored back-to-back victories in this multi-round tourney and took home the trophy.

A hearty congratulations to Amy Wen for winning our first tournament of 2017: A two-round Splendor bout that saw her come in first in both games she played. That copy of Flubber on VHS that you see there? Part of the prize for her domination. To the victor go the spoils.

Alyssa Faith, Melanie Feldman, Rebecca Levine and Rachel Rubin (playing under the team name "The Breast and the Brightest") were winners of the 2016 Word Play Tournament-- a multi-stage tournament featuring teams of 2-4 competing in Codenames, Taboo, Boggle and Bananagrams. Many played, but none were as good as The Breast and the Brightest.

BoardGame Empire's inaugural tournament was a Settlers of Catan multi-round bout on September 19th. The winner was... this guy! Yeah, that's right, we didn't think to get his name. We didn't even know we'd be creating a Hall of Champions back then. But he crushed it that night, taking down a slew of others as he artfully traded sheep for wood and other such moves on his way to victory.
