Hi all, the umpire for DBMM at Call to Arms at the weekend provided the following information.

Best regards

DBMM at CTA had 10 players registered, and one last minute entry who was allowed to team with the organiser to play ½ his games.

To speedup setup time and to ensure games were finished in the allowed time, pre-set fixed terrain was used. The umpire devised five tables ranging from desert to mountains to open plains. The attacker chose the (long) table side he would approach from.

Most tables were relatively symmetric in the terrain features provided to either side, although one was bisected by a river which created a setup challenge/decision for players – do they set up on both banks over the river or only one? Players rotated clockwise and anti-clockwise after each game.

In general the terrain setup method was liked by players. Although there were some grumblings that some of tables did not suit “my army”. But what real general gets perfect terrain and anyway the normal method can also produce terrain favouring one player over the other.

Weather rules were also shortened. Reflecting the weather outside, with all games fought in Winter, though no night attacks were allowed. Snow featured in one game, and rain in another.

Winner of the competition, was Peter Noble with Early Japanese. Second was Mark Pickup who used Spartacus on day one and Spartans on day two. He paired with the late entry Tilman Walk who used War of The Roses – Henry 7th in France. Third was Jim Morton with Bactrian Greeks.
