Dipping A Toe Into The DBA Waters

My family and I like to play the occasional boardgame, but I think it would be fun to play something fun and simple using 15mm EIR with my oldest daughter. With a little time to kill last Saturday afternoon, I trekked south to the Baron's to get learned up on DBA (and watch some lousy Mizzou Tiger football). With there being virtually no interest in DBA in our group, I have never had the opportunity to try it, however Jaye obliged me and I found it to be a set of rules easy to catch on to for young and old alike. We played two very basic Roman civil war games that ran rather quickly. I think this is a ruleset I can take on the road and play with the girl when we are looking for something to do.

Welcome to DBA - the greatest wargame ever. Hope you're playing 3.0, the best version of the best wargame ever : )

What is DBA? Assuming a ruleset just never heard of it until recently since I have been looking at sites for a place to get 15mm ancients. Is it not really any fun?
