Friday night, I joined the "Roadkill" DBA event run by Paul from Seattle. This was a tournament where you were encouraged to bring one of the worst-performing DBA armies. I used my ancient Spanish army to proxy the Ilyrian army, one of the obscure book I armies with a strange set of units. It has a mostly Aux army with a LH general and a high aggression, a bad combination. I had a good time, but the army didn't do well. I think I lost a couple of games and won one, but since my camera ran out of power, I didn't have many photos.
Saturday morning, I ran the same Strange Aeons: X-Com game that I ran at Mayday. There was only one guy playing it, but I think he ended up liking the game and setting. The humans died pretty badly again in the game, which led me to rethink some of the rules to make things a bit more even in earlier tech level games.
Saturday afternoon, I played in another DBA tournament run by Mark S., this time using only the same armies against each other. This was mainly for fun, without much score-keeping, so I just took a bunch of pictures.
On Sunday I attended the annual Alberta DBA Open with my Komnenan dynasty army, which I've always considered a fairly versatile one, and I took on three opponents. I lost against Mark S's Medieval French and won against Marco's Libyans and Dennis' Italian condotierres.
I ended up tying Mark W for second place in the tournament, which is a pretty good showing.
This turned out to be another great weekend, and it's now a gaming tradition for me to go to FallCon. I'm definitely looking forward to the next one.
