One question I have, the rules and videos I've seen are unclear - do you have to commit your player to the end zone side of the highlight or tournament closest to you?
No. The rules stat this. I haven't paid enough attention to the videos, but I thought they purposely showed some going "across the table."
What I notice though, is most people tend to focus on what's closest to them. And even though I tell them, they don't grasp it until I take the slot sitting in front of them.
