    (1) These rules are from the 1990s.  Is anyone still playing them? .

    (2) It would seem there is more than one version; does anyone know the final version or have appropriate errata to plumb to the bottom of the rules. [e.g. one version has a +1 for the first round on initiating melee while another does not have that but DOES give a +1 on follow up].

    I’ve got a copy that the Pike & Shot Society gave away to its members.

    It’s an A5 booklet, the published version was A4ish. I don’t think it went to a second edition.

    Yes, the P&SS copy is the version I have.  There are more versions, see version 2.0:

    Maximilian! Rules

    These two are not identical but is version two the final version?  I gather that errata has been issued.

    I have the first; never played it. Didn’t know about the 2nd.

    Wasn’t it essentially an attempt to extend DBA into the Renaissance, before DBR came out?

    There’s commentary on several sites; those might be worth looking into. And there is — or was — a yahoo group.

    I take it by First you refer to the P&SS copy.

    There seems to have been:

    (1) Pike & Shot Society issue

    (2) 1995 Version

    (3) Version 2.0

    I understand there has been a 2007 copy but it is not clear if that is 2.0 or another version prior to 2.0 … or subsequent to it!

    Certainly it extended DBA before DBR but I think it aimed to do more than that.  There WAS a Yahoo Group but I think it no longer exists.

    The second edition is the 2007 one.

    I’ve read but not played them. Complexity-wise they’re somewhere between DBA and DBR. The time period covered is AD 1400-1550, so as much an alternative to the former as the latter.
