Hello All
Im having a great time playing this game with my sons, a truly excellent design.
Something that we remain unsure about is the nature of an extra activation after a failed pass but a zero result on scatter.
The attacking team have the ball its a success! but its a fail! so do the defence get the full action to capitalise on the ball juggling?
Thats how we play it. If the pass is deemed a success, it would not be clear what type, partial or total. Agreed?

A failed pass + no scatter = a catch, and a full activation for the defense (assuming the ball was thrown to a receiver and not an open square)

Ha Ha I come at this from a Rugby background where we do indeed have attack and defence. The penny has just dropped, you don’t have attack, its offence! And I watch it every week!!whistle

Something to do with a common language, I understand the difference can be explained by the fact that British English evolved more extensively than the American version due to our broader engagement with other languages around the world in our colonial and trading days. Yours is more true to Tudor English. Even Shakespeare talks of the fall, what the hell is that.

By the way the Regals just won the Super Bowl 13 - 7 (we kick the extra point from the 15.) It’s the rugby influence, it would not feel right otherwise.

Well if the "Warriors" lose next week, then I'm blaming you!

(That's apparently what we like to do here in the U.S.... blame everyone else).
