Title: DBA tournament at the Durban club
Post by: Justin Swanton on May 26, 2019, 08:21:38 AM
We had 6 tournament players that met at the Historygamers club in Durban last Saturday afternoon: Patrick, Hans, Noel, Matthew, Nicolas and yours truly. Everyone played three games, each game with a different army against a different opponent. The winner was to receive an all expenses 6-week luxury cruise to the Seychelles (well, I can dream sometimes, can't I?)

Here are the games and results:

ROUND ONE
Patrick, with Germans, vs Hans with Marian Romans - 1/2:1/2 as the game had to be stopped due to time limit.
Matthew, with Mithridatic, vs Noel with Parthian - 4:0 to Matthew. The Mithridatic scythed chariot was very difficult to counter.
Justin, with Carthaginian, vs Nick with Theban Hoplites - 5:0 to Justin.

ROUND TWO
Noel, with Germans, vs Justin with Marian Romans - 2:1 to Justin. Another game that had to be stopped at the time limit (for which the Romans were truly thankful).
Nick, with Mithridatic, vs Patrick with Parthian - 4:0 to Nick. That scythed chariot...
Matthew, with Carthaginian, vs Hans with Theban Hoplites - 4:0 to Hans. I didn't see this game so I don't know how it played out.

ROUND THREE

Patrick, with Germans, vs Matthew, with Romans (so Patrick had the Germans twice...damn, I didn't see that). 4:0 to Matthew.
Hans, with Mithridatic, vs Justin, with Parthian - 5:2 to Justin. Hans threw 1's or 2's for virtually every pip throw, so I can't put the Parthian victory down just to strategy.
Nick, with Carthaginian, vs Noel, with Theban Hoplites - 4:1 to Nick. the Thebans were clearly having a bad day.

FINAL SCORE:
Justin - 3 games & 10 kills (Seychelles here I come!)
Matthew - 2 games & 8 kills
Nick (tied with Matthew) - 2 games & 8 kills
Hans - 1 1/2 games & 7 kills
Patrick - 1/2 games and 1 kill
Noel - 0 games and 2 kills

Phil

About an hour per game, I think. Noel called the time limit.

Great to read of the competition in Durban, which includes some interesting armies.
