As a regular DBA player I was curious to try DBR condensed, and got the chance the other week. I had a Royalist army with Cornish pike against a larger force of Parliamentarians:
Another report of it is here:

Interesting reports Mark. DBR are a good set of rules imo.

Thanks. I'm keen to play it some more. Not sure when I'd look to get an army for myself, however (and it'd only be in the condensed scale), as I've got quite a backlog of armies waiting to be painted as it is!

Thank you for posting. As a Pike and Shot fan, I always enjoy an interesting write up of the period.

Thanks, I look forward to trying DBR again. I like the condensed scale, as it plays quickly. Enjoyably different from DBA.

Here are a few ramblings on the scales included in the DBR ruleset:
