The rules are available through Wargame Vault…


You can find more info on the WGC site as well:

There is a forum and an FB page for discussion on the game and upcoming events. Also reviews and or battle reports on the Forum.

Spotted a couple reviews here on the Triumph forum.

I've tried a few demo games at Lancaster Pa. and liked them, fairly easy and straight forward, well worth looking at.

Triumph are a DBa-clone type of game that is written in easy to understand English. You are not limited to just 12 elements per army like in basic DBA. There is a point system with min. and max. limits on which units you can have in your armies. I recommend them.

He's asking about Trimph, not Triumph. Try to focus, people.

Trimph! The challenger to DBA…

Interesting how people consider Triumph as "the" option or the competitor to DBA? Like it is somehow either or?

There are lots of competitors to DBA even if one does not include the many different versions of DBA itself as "options"…

Triumph is just one of many ancients / medieval games on the market. It has some familiar mechanics and quite a few new mechanics. Just like many other games on the market.

I think this lingering direct competitor stuff comes from the fact that many of us playing the game (including the writers) were former players and fans of DBA. Just like many other games were written and even played by people that used to play something else (or even DBA since it has such a long history).

So if you are at all interested in a fun and fast play ancients / medieval game I suggest you give it a try. Even if you did or did not like DBA you might find Triumph has enough differences to change your mind.

The other thing that has me excited about this game is that for the first time in my memory we are we seem to be drawing in new players to ancients gaming including a kids who are actually buying and painting their own armies to play in the events.
