ACF Nationals is the national championship of ACF format. It is roughly equal in difficulty to the other national tournament, NAQT ICT, but differs by using the ACF distribution and format. Like other ACF events, it is packet-submission.

More information on editors and circumstances of ACF Nationals can be found at the ACF page.

Beginning in 2008, ACF Nationals crowned Undergraduate and Division II champions in addition to overall champions. Unlike at NAQT ICT, the Division II title is awarded to the highest-finishing Division II team in the overall field, rather than being played in a separate tournament. Unofficial winners by the current criteria are noted for pre-2008 tournaments, when known.

  • The tournament was not held in 1992
  • Undergraduate and Division II titles prior to 2008 are retroactive
  • No D2-eligible teams participated in 2006
  • The 2002 tournament was originally announced as "hosted by George Washington University;" however, it had to be moved to Maryland due to room access issues at GWU, and most of the staff was recruited by Maryland. GWU assisted in running the tournament.
