We have recently confirmed the dates and formats for the main DBA events in Christchurch, New Zealand during 2016. I thought it time to post the information on-line to assist out of town players considering attending and for locals to prepare that new army you’ve been considering.
Each year in Christchurch we hold the DBA Open Championship. This comprises two tournaments held several months apart. The first tournament is DBA Open Ancient Tournament which is scheduled for the 3rd of July. This tournament covers armies up to 450AD and comprises five rounds. The DBA Open Medieval Tounament, covering armies from 451AD will be held on the 11th of December. Players scores from each event are combined to determine the overall DBA Open winner. Full details on the DBA Open can be found here.
One of the other major wargame conventions in Christchurch is Conquest. While Conquest is a two day convention the DBA competition will run over a single day, Saturday the 5th November. The DBA competition will have six rounds comprised of three Ancient rounds in the morning followed by three Medieval rounds in the afternoon. This format will support the increasing numbers of players building armies and provide plenty of variety within a single day of gaming. Full details of the Conquest DBA Competition can be found here.
I hope we see you at one or more of these events.
