On the 19th of October 2008 RINIWA organised our second 3-round, 200AP 1-day DBMM tournament. This page contains some images of the day and the final results of the competition. Mick Hessian umpired, list-checked and painted the door prize - well done Mick!
Although everyone is still learning the rules, there weren't many umpire calls on the day but there were a number of high profile upsets on the tabletop showing that the change of rules (from DBM to DBMM) has certainly opened up the podium.

Following Rob's Brian Boru Report, here's another account charting my
progress at what was a very enjoyable event. Having previously
fielded a massive but low quality Zanj army in competition, on this
occasion I decided to go to the opposite extreme by fielding a tiny
but high quality Early Tang Chinese army as follows:
Command 1 (12 ME)
Reg Cv (S) Sub-general
3 x Reg Cv (S)
1 x Reg LH (F)
Command 2 (14.5 ME)
Reg Cv (S) SC-in-C
4 x DBEs of Reg Bw (X/O)
2 x Reg Bw (O)
1 x Reg Ps (O)
