The Winter Activation Meeting (WAM) is a "genre" convention sponsored by the Boardgame Players Association, featuring tournament play of two-player historical card-driven games (CDWs). It began in 2003. In 2007, tournaments include Twilight Struggle, Paths of Glory, and Wilderness War. A Swiss Open format is used to allow players to play a single favorite all weekend or enter a number of events. Other CDWs, such as Hannibal, For the People, We The People, Empire of the Sun and Trimuph of Chaos will be played in a less formal setting. The location is Timonium, near Baltimore, Maryland. Dates for 2007 are Jan. 26 through Jan. 28.
