2046 AADA Tournament Rules
We asked for your input a couple issues ago about the future of the AADA
tournaments. Thanks to everyone who sent us their ideas. Here's what
we've come up with:
The 2046 AADA World Duelling Championships will be held at Origins '96,
July 4-7, 1996 in Columbus, OH. The 2046 AADA World Racing Championships
will be held at GenCon '96, August 8-11, 1996 in Milwaukee, WI. The same
basic tournament rules apply:
- Rule 1: The 2046 World Champion-ships will be an open tournament.
Entrants need not be AADA members.
- Rule 2: Rules in the latest printing of the
Car Wars Compendium, Second Edition, any official errata published since
its publication, and Uncle Albert's Catalog From
Hell shall be in effect. Rules and errata with a later
date of publication shall take precedence over earlier rulings. All
applicable rules from AADA tournament
guidelines published in
Quarterly will also be in effect. No rules or errata
published after this issue of
Pyramid shall be
- Rule 3: Vehicle designs for the final round must be turned in by 10
a.m. the day of the event directly to the event referee or at the Steve
Jackson Games booth. You may submit up to three designs per event for
the referee to check; please indicate the order of preference. No
- Rule 4: Any car found to be illegal may be altered by the referee to
make it legal. If the referee determines that none of the submitted
designs can be made legal, a substitute car will be issued.
- Rule 5: Foul language, harassment of another player, coaching by a
non-player or any other non-sportsmanlike activity (as determined by the
referee or a representative of Steve Jackson Games) are grounds for
disqualification. There are no appeals.
- Rule 6: Have fun!
Both events will have the same basic three-round structure: The first
round is open to all entrants who care to sign up. Club Champions
receive a bye to the semi-finals. The defending World Champion receives
a bye to the finals. To claim a seed, Club Champions must be reported to
Steve Jackson Games by June 28, 1996 (for the Duelling Championships)
and August 2, 1996 (for the Racing Championships).
Unreported champions will not receive a seed, and must enter the
at-large qualifier. Seeded participants who elect to fight in a round
earlier that their spot give up their seed and risk elimination from the
tournament as if they were an unseeded participant.
In all rounds, a vehicle may have a maximum of two characters -
driver and gunner. No passengers are allowed. Characters should be built
on 50 points, with a maximum of 30 points in any one skill. Reflex rolls
will be set at 4 for all characters. Personal equipment available to
crew members shall be limited to one suit of Body Armor, of any legal
type, and one Personal Fire Extinguisher (PFE) only. No exceptions. No
hand-held weapons or other personal equipment will be allowed.
The first-round events will be Division 15 events using pre-designed
vehicles. The semi-final events will be Division 25 events using
vehicles of your design.
You must bring a neat, legible worksheet showing all elements of the
vehicle design with you. Your design will be checked by a player at
another table, and corrections (if any are necessary) will have to be
made very quickly. Please make absolutely sure your designs are legal
before you come to the event.
The finals will be Division 50 events. As mentioned above, vehicle
designs have to be dropped off with the referee or at the SJ Games booth
before 10:00 a.m. the day of the final.
The Duelling Championships will emphasize combat - while some
combination of checkpoints and/or other goals may be used to score
points, kills will be the most important factor.
The Racing Championships, on the other hand, will emphasize speed and
driving ability. The following additional rules, based on suggestions by
the folks at NOVA , will apply:
- No dropped solid or liquid weapons of any kind will be allowed.
Dropped gas weapons that do not affect the racetrack surface (smoke,
paint, flame clouds, etc.) are still legal.
- Weapons are restricted to direct fire only (no grenades or grenade
launchers), and individual weapons that do more than 2d damage are
prohibited (linked combinations that do greater damage are permitted).
- No temporary speed boosters, including nitrous oxide, rocket
boosters, supercharger capacitors, jump jets, etc.
- No participant may fire until he has completed one lap.
- No tire shots.
Now's the time to be holding those Club Championships! Club Champions
will receive a prize from SJ Games, in addition to their seedings at the
World Championships. Prizes at the World Championships are yet to be
determined, but they're sure to make the carnage worthwhile.
See you this summer!
