Anderida 2000-2009

Anderida was a hugely popular themed DBM doubles competition, originated by Michael Grant and later run by Eric Cruttenden, held at Pevensey Bay in Sussex from 1998 to 2009.  In its final year two parallel competitions were run, one using Field of Glory rules.  The competition ended due to Eric’s ill-health coinciding with the closure of part of the usual venue: it is sadly missed.

Bravely Fought Prize: Kevan Reed & Rod Glanfield

Junior Prizes: Matthew Dallman and James Stovell

Society of Ancients Special Award: Robert Harman, for an outstanding act of sportsmanship. Deon Whittaker had prepared some spectacular ships, but had been unable to deploy them in the first three games because he failed the waterway roll each time. In the fourth game, against Robert, he failed the roll again: Robert allowed him to place the waterway anyway so that the ships could be launched, even though a waterway narrowing the table was the last thing a Mongol army wanted.
