|New Kingdom Egyptians deployed|
|Both sides advance|
Last Wednesday night down at the Vikings Club in Lanyon, Rick and I met and played a DBA game of Hittites versus New Kingdom Egyptians. Rick had the Hittites and was the attacker, while I had the New Kingdom Egyptians and was the defender. This turned out to be pretty slow going as we bumbled our way through the game, it was Rick's first game of DBA 3.0 and my second, although we both had played DBA 2.2 years ago. Much of our game seem to involve indecisive combat and recoils with nothing much happening until two ranks of Hittite 3 Pk (they used to be Sp under 2.2) destroyed a Libyan warband. In the end we ran out of time. We were missing some basic DBA tactics, in 2.2 I seem to remember flank support was crucial, but this has changed. So further reading of the rules, and the QRS is obviously required.
