The rules that guide the gameplay
The game is divided into 4 quarters at 1:15 for each quarter. Most games should not exceed 15 minutes total with play calling and timeouts factored.
Each team is given three timeouts per half.
There are no penalties in our game.
Full OT periods. The winner is determined when there is a leader at the end of an OT period.
First downs are attained by crossing the 50-yard line, only once per possession. If you start your drive on the opponent's side of the 50-yard line, no first down is attainable.
During a 4th down, you have three options:
* Try to get the first down or touchdown.
* Punt the ball (40 yard punt)
* Kick a field goal
You will be given in your playbook the option to kick a field goal for three points as long as you are within your opponent's 40-yard line. The probabilities of making the field goal kick increase the closer you are to the goal line just like in real football.
Half-time / End of 2nd quarter
At the start of the 3rd quarter, the team who did not start the game with the ball, will be given the ball on offense. Be aware of the time at the end of the 2nd quarter as your team may not have possession at the start of the next half.
Point after attempts (PAT)
You have two options after scoring a Touchdown. You can either take the automatic point from a Field Goal, or you can attempt a 2-Point Conversion in which you will have one play to reach the endzone from the 10-yard line.
A Touchdown is scored when you get the football into the opponent's endzone. Next, you will choose to go for a 2-Point Conversion or take the guaranteed 1 point from a Field Goal.
Occurs when you are tackled in your own endzone or you run out the back of your endzone.
Change of Possessions
The 3 ways there can be a change of possession are Fumble, Interception, and Turnover on Downs.
