Rules The object of the game is to have more points than your opponent. To get points you answer questions correctly. Both teams start at the 20 yard line.
Rules Each team has two opportunities to get a question correct. For each question correct, your team gets ten yards. If your team gets the question wrong, you have two options: – Punt – Go For It
Rules - Punting If your team elects to punt, they stay where they are on the field and the other team gets to answer the question.
Rules – Go For It If your team elects to go for it, I will choose another student to answer. If the student answers correctly, the ball moves ten yards and the same team gets a different question. If you answer incorrectly your ball moves back to the 20 yard line. The other team takes over and if they answer the same question correctly they are awarded twenty yards (ten for answering the question correctly and ten as a bonus).
Rules – Fumble If four players (two from each team) answer the same question incorrectly, I will shout “FUMBLE.” I’ll choose the first student to raise their hand from either team to answer the question. If you answer correctly, your team receives 10 yards, the ball, and a new question. If you answer incorrectly, I keep choosing students until someone answers correctly.
Rules – Ineligible Receiver If the wrong player on a team gives an answer, this is called an INELIGIBLE RECEIVER. The other team gets the ball and a new question. If somebody from the other team answers a question out of turn, the team with the ball gets 10 yards and a new question.
Touchdowns If your team scores a TOUCHDOWN, you get six points. The extra point may be earned by answering another question. If your team wants to go for two more points, you will get a more difficult question. After a score, it becomes the other team’s turn. Reset and start both teams on the 20 yard line.
End Game Whoever has the most points at the end of the allotted time wins! 21 – 14: Blue Wins
