Saturday Morning: Round 1
This is an open qualifier. All wishing to participate may attend. It
will be a set of several Division 15 duels. Due to number of
participants is unknown at this time, a variety of different tracks
will be used (the referee has built a limited number of arenas).
None of the arenas will be very gimmicky; they will promote
Vehicles will be supplied but designs may be submitted before the
event to the referee via e-mail. Vehicles will be looked over, and
any rule infractions will be pointed out so they may be fixed
To make the selection of cars fair, any Division 15 vehicle
submitted will be copied, and offered as a possible choice for the
other players as well.
There will be 3-5 players in each arena (divided up as evenly as
possible). The top performers will advance to Round 2.
Saturday Evening: Round 2
This round will take place in The Cloverleaf Arena of Dearborn,
Michigan. This map was printed in ADQ 9/4 in the
winter of 2041. If you're not familiar with its configuration, go to
any highway cloverleaf, remove any walls or guardrails, and you have
the arena. It will be a Division 20 duel with dropped weapons
prohibited and bonus points awarded for completing a circuit.

Designer: The scale given in ADQ 9/4 is a misprint. The
actual scale is 1 square = 1 x 1 Car Wars square.
Vehicles for Round 2 may be submitted to the referee in advance via
e-mail. In contrast to Round 1, designs submitted for this event
will be kept strictly confidential. Rules infractions in designs
will be pointed out for correction. Vehicles submitted the day of
the event will be verified, but there will be much less time for
corrections. The judges reserve the right to modify illegal cars
submitted the day of the duel, to make them legal.
The top finishers of this event will advance to Round 3. AADA World
Champions (pre-2048) will automatically be placed in Round 2, if
they can bring proof of their victories.
Sunday Morning: Round 3
The Final Round will have combat occur between Division 30 off-road
pickups in the Mud Bowl of Pike County, Kentucky.
The Mud Bowl is a pit of dimensions 300' x 300'. Vehicles race in,
down the sides of the surrounding mountains, through the cheering
fans and into The Pit, which is filled 2' deep with mud. Cars
traveling in mud will have their speeds reduced by 5 mph per turn.
Mud prevents tire shots from occurring. Dropped weapons deposited in
mud will not scatter.
In the very center of the arena, is a 60' x 60' platform the
vehicles may drive onto, thus escaping the mud. In the center of the
platform, is a six-pack of a cool malt beverage. The duelist who
claims the six-pack first is the winner. Anyone who destroys the
six-pack automatically loses (and will not make it past the angry
Vehicle designs for the Final Round may also be submitted by e-mail
or in-person at any of the two previous rounds.
The 2048 AADA Dueling Champion, Miles Messervy, will receive
automatic placement in Round 3.
