|Train Gamers Association (TGA)
|Updated: December 2013
The ongoing purpose of the Train Gamers Association (TGA) is to facilitate and promote the play of train games. We sanction and run Puffing Billy Tournaments at large and small conventions throughout the year. Our National Championship is held at Railcon each year over Labor Day weekend in Denver CO, and our other two major conventions each year are held at Origins and Gen Con.

2013 Major Tournament Results
Ken Gutermuth ran away with the big prize at Railcon. There were some cries of foul as the top four rounded out with Debbie Gutermuth, Jeff Jackson, and Trella Bromley, but we can assure you the scores were entered correctly. Ken also won the PBT at Gen Con, and Ed Hewlett won at Origins.
We broke the attendance record we set in 2012. For the first time, we had over 1000 participants total in those three major Puffing Billy tournaments.Ticket to Ride National Championship
