Re: Rule sets

Hi

I only really play (and enjoy) DBA these days for ancients. Big Battle DBA is good fun but doesn't get much of an outing.

Other sets:

I believe that some currently prefer 'Impetus' as a rule set. As I have not played them I'll leave comment on them to others.

The largest following recently has been Field of Glory (FoG) with a following in NSW & VIC. I have played a lot of this in recent years but I've found that my enjoyment factor (EF) has fallen away dramatically.

There is a small following for DBMM, a Phil Barker development in the DBX series, but mostly in the ACT and QLD. I've played version 1 of this, I think there is a good game somewhere in there but cannot stomach reading the rules. Version 2 came out pretty quickly, I don't expect my opinion will change but I have not played them.

I'm unsure what set is currently dominant in SA and WA, if any.

Regards

Stephen

that's no good AD......although I'm actually not so surprised, in that a few other FoG players are saying the same thing of late ( on forums etc ). I've moved away from Armarti recently for the same reasons," EF had fallen away dramtically ", but still do play it on occasions. Impetus is the go now for me, if I wont a real game of ancients.......as you know

ps I think Force on Force is the most intersting thing coming out of the Osprey stables at the mo.....IMHO
