We had a good solid turn out for the DBA tournament in Nashville yesterday. Eight players battled it out in a three round tournament.

The winner for his first ever championship title was Bob Gunter playing the Vikings. Congratulations Bob who received accolades and a super awesome DBA 3.0 movement template courtesy of Joe Collins and the Society of Ancients.

The other top finishers were:

Dave Cliffel, 2nd Place
Marc Wozniac, 3rd Place
Tom Thomas, 4th Place

other players included:

Joe Collins
Dave Crowder
Scott Brown
Tommy Thomas

The event was hosted by David Crenshaw.

Every DBA type game played during the convention gave each player a ticket in the prize drawing for the WRG family of games room. We had DBA 3.0, DBN (Napoleonic variant) and Triumph. Next year I hope to include HotT, ADLG, and Warrior as well.

Tommy Thomas won the first pick from the raffle and took home a $20 USD Gift certificate from Splintered light (Many thanks to Splintered Light and David McBride!)

Tom Thomas got the second pick and scored a Xyston Theban army complete with Baueda camp.

Scott Brown got a full 1/72 plastic Greek army by Hat or Zvezda and a spiffy carrying case.

Joe Collins picked up the last of the prizes and received a resin hut good for dark age or Medieval gaming.

Thanks to everyone who put in all of the hours to make Nashcon a success, most especially Josh Krebs for his tireless effort and good cheer during the convention!

Seven players? How did you handle the odd number of players?

John Leahy04 Jun 2017 5:25 p.m. PST

Says 8 players in the intro.

Eight players actually (just add in the champion to the list). If we had had an odd number I would have stepped in and played as well. As it was we had an interested spectator who I got to play a learning game with while the tournament was going on. He was kind enough to put up with me stopping our game occasionally to keep the tourney going. We had a great group of players who were more concerned with sportsmanship and fun than winning, so rules questions were few and far between.

Great report and my congratulations to all the winners – but a very special congratulations to Bob Gunter!!!

Nashcon is always a fun convention and especially for DBA based gaming.

And here is a photo of photocrinch himself -- supervising a DBA game no doubt:

What were the rest of the armies?

Wow David, that is a really big picture of me – glad I was wearing a festive shirt! In that particular photo I believe I was losing a DBA game, which is what I did all weekend!

The armies were a mix of Macedonian, Burgundian Ordnance, French Medieval, Patrician Roman, and a couple of others. I'll have to look them up when I get home this afternoon.

Nice write up. The drawing seems like a good idea. Good to know that DBA three is still popular at Nashcon.
