Didn't SJ Games do the Cow Palace? How you could duel in that thing is beyond me, but hey, it's Car Wars.

No map just that the Cow Palace is mentioned as being one of the Overdrive Circuit's arenas. What occurred to me is that the land it's on was turned into an arena or that it's an "only in San Francisco" thing and it's an indoor off-road arena, there were off-road races held inside the Cow Palace.

Well, auto racing *has* been run inside the Cow Palace: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47Tiq38hbWc ....

Cute. Very cute. You're like the guy on the GURPS lava thread who pointed me to the official SJGames Lava supplement; "Lava; you fall in, you die." Sorry, I hope I haven't revealed too much about that publication.

I just remember all the Sharks' games I saw there before they got their own arena down in San Jose, and all the outdoor boat and camping expos I went to there. So I have this "prejudiced" or "colored" perspective on the Cow Palace >:)

Just pointing out "there has in fact been auto racing inside CP; why not autoduelling?".

The Chili Bowl midget-car race has been run indoors for decades, as well. So "indoor racing events" isn't outside [ahem] the realm of possibility. :)

A pretty fun FFA (non-team) event. I'm sorry we didn't have a few more players to add to the mayhem.

And given that I won an adorable stuffed powder blue Chtulu doll wearing an Uncle Sam hat, I think I can safely say that Evil Steve toys truly is an instrument of the illuminati.

Yep. another car wars event in the books. Thanks to the 5 competitors who did their best to wipe each other out, and SJ Games and the Men in Black for the prize support. Hope everyone had a good time.

I've chosen the City and arena location for next year, the Port of Stockton Duelarama! which I am going to nickname, "The Pit!"

so Kublacon attendance was over 3700 this year, about a 10% increase from last year. didn't seem as crowded but I suppose that is because they were split up over multiple hotels now.

Personally I think they should have kept it at one hotel. The Marriot's plenty big.
