When using these rules for kickoffs:
http://www.rnrgames.com/images/ProductRules/1stngoal_addendu...

what do I do when I roll a 10-19?

Also, a TD in only 1/8000 kickoffs?

Looks interesting, thanks.

If you have to ask, then you OBVIOUSLY don't know.

We boot you as you're obviously cheating. Can't you SEE THERE IS NO 10-19 on that chart!

It CLEARLY says 1-19, not 1-9.

SHEESH! No idea what you are talking about.

As for the 1/8000, that is correctly calculated Luke. The basic game actually has the possibility for returning kickoffs for a touchdown due to the breakaway feature of the Play die. That said, there's no reason that the optional rule couldn't be altered to increase the odds if players want that chance increased. In fact, it's done!

According to pro-football-reference.com, in 2010 and 2011 there have been 31 kick return tds, in 3045 returns. So, more like 1/100.

19 or 20, twice in a row, would do the trick. 4/400.

This is how I was thinking of house-ruling it. Since kicks that are returned more than 20 yards generally break for big returns, I was thinking that each time you rolled a 20 on a kickoff return, you would follow up by adding 2d20, and re-rolling any 20s again and again. No automatic touchdown on X amount of 20's rolled but the chance to total =>90 is increased.

I'm not stat expert so I don't know how the odds there compare to the above suggestion but we'll probably test it out and see how that works.
