Held in the middle of winter, The Blackjack promises good prize money and a chance to make it into the big leagues. The local competition is known for its good sportsmanship and friendly attitudes. Bloodthirsty tactics don't work well here.

Be careful of the arena surface, the packed snow and ice patches make maneuvering a risky proposition. Dropped weapons such as mines and spikes can be easily hidden underneath the snow after each event. The ground crews have been known to miss a few.
