So ive watched the game play videos and I see how runners score for standing on scoring spaces and bonus points for knocking the most people out in a period. However I dont see any info on why its important to go for the ball in the middle of the field.

From the rulebook:

Quote:
You score points at the start of each of your turns if one of your runners holds the ball while standing on a scoring mound.

At the end of each period, all teams score points if their runners are standing on scoring mounds, with or without the ball .
Scoring on a minor scoring mound (a “minor score”) is worth 1 point during the 1st period, 2 points dur- ing the 2nd, 3 during the 3rd, 4 during the 4th.

Scoring on your team’s major scoring mound (a “major score”) is always worth 5 points . The other teams’ major scoring mounds aren’t worth anything to you, but it can be worth the effort to prevent them getting there.


So, there are times you only score if you are holding the ball...

You score for each of your guys on scoring spaces at the end of the PERIOD. Having the ball allows the ball carrier to score at the start of your TURN. Having the ball in a scoring space allows you to rack up points much more quickly.

I believe you have to have the ball to score each turn and without the ball you only scores at the end of a period or whatever

EDIT: ninja'd lol
