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)
