DBA FAQ Update – January 2018

The team working on the the DBA Frequently Asked Question file have just released an update.

This update provides eight new entries. Perhaps the most notable are those providing clarity around conforming and turning to face when single elements are attacked from the flank and rear. In addition it considers a couple of minor points that periodically are missed, or which occur less frequently.

The most up to date file, available as a PDF, can be found in the “DBA Resources” section of this site.

Updated DBA 3.0 FAQ 

The team working on the the DBA Frequently Asked Question file have just released a minor update which includes just two new points.

The FAQ aims to clarify common questions that have been submitted since the last update and that have come up in a number of games. The file can be found in the “DBA Resources” section of this site.

Ancient Pharos

My travels in Croatia continue and recently I managed a short stay on the Island of Hvar, and in particular the town of Stari Grad. Originally founded by the Greeks in 385 BC the town was called Pharos.

I’ve posted a short summary of my exploration around Pharos, and the adjoining Stari Grad Plain which is another UNESCO World Heritage site.

I have compiled a short post called “In the Footsteps of Demetrius of Pharos” for those interested.
