De Bellis Antiquitatis (DBA) is one of the more popular set of rules for Ancient and Medieval period and as such players can be found in many countries.
In addition to casual gaming there are regular tournaments to attend. DBA tournaments are particularly popular in the United Kingdom, parts of Europe, the United States, Australia and New Zealand. As a DBA game usually lasts less than an hour a typical one day tournament allows for five or six games during a single day.
A good place to find details on local DBA tournaments, is of course your local wargames club. If you are in the United Kingdom I would highly recommend you consider looking at the Portsmouth DBA Site. This site often lists UK based tournaments including those forming part of the Society of Ancients DBA League. Alternatively, details on upcoming events are frequently announced on either the new DBA Fanaticus Forum or the DBA Mailing List.
Here in Christchurch (New Zealand) we have a selection of informal gaming events throughout the year. They are low key and friendly, which are ideal for both new players or the veteran looking for an opportunity to deploy their figures for a few games. Further, if you are new to Ancient wargaming, or indeed DBA, there are often loan armies available for new players.
Finally, if you are in Christchurch and you are interested in DBA please feel free to make contact through this website.
