It's time to review for a test! Let's play academic football!
How to Play
The class should split into two groups.
A member of the offense is asked by the umpire to pick the level of difficulty of
their question – 10 yards, 20 yards, 30 yards or 40 yards.
The umpire selects and asks a 10 yard, 20 yard, 30 yard or 40 yard question.
If the student answers correctly, the ball advances the appropriate number
of yards on the field.
If the question is answered incorrectly, a "bad pass" is called, and the question
goes to a player of the team that is "on defense."
After "bad pass" is called, there will be pause before a defensive player is called
to answer the question.
Answering the question correctly gives the defense the opportunity to
"sack the quarterback" for a ten yard loss when the offense picks a 10-yard question,
or to intercept a 20, 30, or 40-yard pass play when the respective pass play
was selected. Sacking a quarterback in the offensive endzone is worth 2 points.
If the defensive player misses the question, the pass has been dropped and play
continues without a change in the yard line.
After each touchdown, the ball begins on the offensive team's 20 yard line.
An offensive team has 4 downs to gain 10 or more yards. If 10 or more yards are
attained in 4 or less downs, then the offensive team is awarded another 4 downs
to gain 10 or more yards.
There are no fieldgoals.
On fourth down, the offensive team can select to punt. No question is asked on a
punt. The defensive team gains possession of the ball on their 20 yard line.
When the red endzone is clicked, the blue team's score is incremented by
7. Similarly, when the blue endzone is clicked, the red team's score
is incremented by 7.
When a saftey occurs, simply click the defensive team's score box and
type in their new score.
