Maciek Dud came back with a Season 13 win to once again put him ahead of Allan Jiang, who has now won three seasons to Maciek’s four. These two have proven to be head and shoulders above the competition through 13 seasons of Brass, winning more than half of the seasons to date combined.

Brass is Martin Wallace’s game of economic development in the early Industrial Age around Manchester and Liverpool.
Our Brass tournament will use the online implementation at brass.orderofthehammer.com. We will use the original version of the game – no expansion content, and no special options. You’ll receive a notice in your email once the matchups are ready. If you do sign up, you are committing to checking the website a couple of times on most days (it’s OK if something comes up every once in a while, or if you’re out of town for a weekend), but in general we’re hoping game lengths will be measured in weeks not months.
