Perhaps it was just that other interests overtook the DBA 'thing' because I was never inherently dissatisfied with DBA 2.2.

I couldn't resist the temptation to buy a copy of the new DBA 3.0 rules which I have been browsing through for a couple of weeks, although I am yet to play a game.

Here are a couple of interesting reviews that I thought worth sharing:
