A North American Society of Ancient and Medieval Wargaming (NASAMW) event
organized by the Washington Area De Bellis Antiquitatis Gamers (WADBAG)
and co-sponsored by Fanaticus
in conjunction with the HMGS-East Fall In! Convention.

To participate, you must register for the Fall In! convention, and sign up separately for the Armies and Enemies of Ancient China DBA Theme Tournament through the NASAMW desk on-site.

Armies will be limited to those that fought inside the various parts of the region dominated by Chinese culture and ideas (see list below). In addition to China itself, this includes Tibet, Vietnam, Korea, Japan, the Tarim Basin, and Mongolia. It doesn't include Burma, Siam, India, Afghanistan, or further west.

Battles will be played on the 32" square board with 10" deep deployment zone.  BUAs will not be allowed unless both players agree before rolling aggression.  Otherwise, the rules will be standard DBA 2.0.  Players should bring their own terrain; game boards and a limited supply of terrain will also be available on-site for use.

Various prizes and recognitions will be awarded, including a painted Sung Chinese DBA army as grand prize to the tournament champion.
