…and in a similar vein, why would a day of SAGA cost less (£25)?
Four games v six? Or perhaps Gripping Beast subsidises it? That said, I think SAGA requires a larger table, so, in terms of the competition's foot print, DBA ought to be cheaper.
Edit: Having thought about this a little more, I wonder whether floor space might not be the reason.
The SAGA competitions run on both days. Players can play in one or both. (There is a slight discount for anyone who plays both.) The DBA competition is on one of the two days. So, unless the organizers can find someone to take over the DBA area on the second day - which I assume is unlikely - on Sunday, that area is "dead" space. However, the organizers are still being charged for it.
All guesswork on my part, but it strikes me as a plausible explanation.
Good question Stephen. The General's element will not count as one of the two allowed with a base factor of more than 3 v Foot or mounted.
Hi Simon, Just to be clear, I believe you are saying a general’s unit does not count as one of the two allowed elements with a base factor of more than 3 v foot or mounted as long as the element type meets the criteria. So, for example, a cavalry general does not count, but a spear general would. I assume the logic is that a general’s unit has the same base factors until the bonus for being a general is applied. This also means that a 6Cv element is not one of the two as it has base factors of 3 and 3. Is that all correct?
It is intended exactly as you describe. Thanks for clarifying.
