Simon is putting on a DBA tourney in February
Six games and you use yours in just three games
Based on forces from around the Mediterranean

Greek or Persian for me I think

If anyone wants to go one thing I have plenty of is various Greek types and successors to loan

Fab day out.

Odd numbered games you played with opponents army and even games you got to play with your own army.

I took Bosporan's if you won you doubled your score and if you lost or drew you just got the score for stands like in a standard game

Game 1 I used Overseas Greeks and got an 8-0 win
Game 2 I was against Libyans and got an 8-1 win, against tourney winner and someone I have never beaten before
Game 3 I was Ptolemaic and got 8-0 win
Game 4 I was against Early Achaemenid Persians and drew 1-2, I know it sounds odd but if you don't win you draw
Game 5 I was Kappadokians and got an 8-0 win when enemy littoral landing went badly
Game 6 I was really doing well in the tourney but I came up against Armenians who mugged me 1-8 loss

In some games people managed 14-0

22 players and I think I was about 7th which I was happy with.

Loads of different armies that I have never played or played against. DBA for me is the perfect tourney game as well. 6 games, lunch and no rush.

Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Northern Cup at Hammerhead next
