The Gladiators' Open was a open-ended gladiatorial challenge that was held on The Wheel.


A combatant was matched up with an opponent that was theoretically equal in ability, but it was not uncommon for a round to have participants of widely different skill levels. The Open had up to a dozen gladiators who were forced to fight until only one remained. The combat arenas varied, including urban areas, jungle environments, and the Zero-Gee Hall. Weapons ranged from vibro-axes to beam pistols.[1]

A victorious combatant could retire after one round and receive a prize of 5000 credits. The prize amount doubled for every successive round.[1]
