Format = “Matched Pairs”
Each player brings a matched pair of DBA armies from the DBA v3 lists, preferably historical adversaries.

On alternating rounds the player will be using his own or his opponent’s pair. The player who is using his opponent’s pair of armies chooses which of the pair to play with. With 6 rounds planned, this will mean 3 games will be with your own pair, 3 with various opponents’ pairs.

Match-ups will be random, not swiss Chess or knockout. All players should get 6 games, and organiser will try to avoid match-ups between fellow club members etc., if requested.

2ft boards will be supplied. Please bring own terrain, camp, rules etc. and spare boards if possible. Rules for use of larger boards will be finalised nearer the date.

Note:- The organiser will endeavour to supply spare armies or pairs for those unable to bring a pair (Please give notice as far in advance as possible and I’ll do what I can).

Cost will be £6 per player, £3 for 16 years and under.

PRIZES include one or two painted DBA armies. (TBC)

DBA has been one of the most revolutionary games of the last 50 years.
Great to see competitions of it.

Will do.
As written up in a previous ‘The Mill’, the tournament pulls in a decent crowd, though this year it clashes with Society of Ancients Battle Day, which may (or may not...) affect numbers. The clash with Salute didn’t hurt it too much in 2019.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

If anyone fancies a DBA day I may be able to loan out an army pair.

Hi All

Despite an initial bout of optimism, 😶, I’m now ‘officially’ delaying/deferring/cancelling Alton DBA Matched Pairs tournament, until some level of normality has set in, and people are allowed to congregate for the purpose of rolling dice and having fun.

My hope is to reschedule before the end of the calendar year (if only to avoid sourcing trophy labels to replace the ‘2020’ ones). 👍 😎😎

Cheers

Martin
