Is there anywhere to get the changes between the versions online?…..I have version 1 and dont really want to fork out for version 2……

You can download the latest version off the HFG Yahoo Group for free.

Downloaded mine recently, but haven't gotten round to reading them yet

Morgrim, I think you mean DBR, not HFG, a big difference. Also, did you mean DBR 1 or 1.1 to 2? In either case worth the few bucks to buy new version. Lots of changes and some are improvements. Too many to try to list.

Played DBR 1, didn't like it. No one I played with did. Got DBR 2, better reading, haven't played it, everyone I know plays it, loves it.

You can also download it off the web somewhere, just not sure where.

No legal version is available to download. It is a commercial publication, still in print.

"No legal version is available to download. It is a commercial publication, still in print."

Incorrect. Phil Barker put his second edition of DBR on the HFG Yahoo site for international playtesting, just like he did with his HFG rules.

And he took it off again before the rules were published; the published version was never online, so the statement is correct.

I find DBR 2 an improvement over 1.1.
The factors have been rejigged a bit so Shot are not quite so cominant, and the 'separation anxiety' rule is much better than the 'wide groups' rule.

I have only played a couple of DBR 2.0 games and they seem to play well. But I also enjoyed DBR 1.0 and 1.1!

There are rather a lot of changes and a new copy of the rules would be a very good investment IMO. I just need to find more opponents locally!
