We had 2 DBMM v2 competitions in Dublin on the 31st of July (3 games each). This was DBMM v2's worldwide premier as a competition set. It was also the 10th year of Strongbow's Shield as an event - so we must be doing something right! To celebrate this we had a bring and buy in support of RINIWA - this was ably run by Mick Hessian who at one point commented that it might take us another 10 years to accumulate so much stuff for sale!
I umpired. and despite many players only receiving the rules within the last 2 weeks we had very few rules issues - a good sign!
Everyone felt that v2 was a big improvement and no-one was bemoaning the lack of v1 (fairly unusual for wargamers ....:-)
