A wolf and a penguin could never live together, nor could a camel and a hippopotamus. That would be absurd.

And the older you get, the fewer things you really love. And by the time you get to my age, maybe it's only one or two things. With me, I think it's one.

I notice that calling a QB sneak doesn't require any cards to be played & has a 50% chance of succeeding. If the first attempt fails is it allowed to call another one straight away if you still have downs remaining? I presume no cards are discarded on this attempt either? Is that realistic?

Thanks.

There doesn't seem to be anything in the rules that prevents consecutive sneaks.

As to realistic, there are a lot of things in this game that aren't realistic. If it bothers you, just house rule that you burn a card when you call a sneak, just like other run plays.

Cool. Thanks for that.

We just played today & my opponent got to 1st & goal on the 1 yard line. They ended up trying 3 QB sneaks in a row until they were successful & that just felt a bit weird.

Since we're both Aussies we weren't 100% sure on American Football rules but I thought that the clock would keep running since QB sneaks are run plays.

I really liked the game & I agree that house rules seem to be the way to go to get the desired level of 'realism'.

You are right. In real American football, the clock would definitely keep running after a sneak, unless a team called a timeout.

Ah, that appears to be an oversight in the rules. It should state that you have to burn a card from your hand each time you try a sneak.

Cool. I guess that's similar to the erratum for Field Goals. Good to know. Thanks.
