Game Sequence:

Pre-Match Actions:

1. WEATHER Each player rolls a D6, add results and check the Weather Table.
2. FANS Each player rolls a D3 and adds their Dedicated Fans. This is recorded as the Fan Factor (FF).
Add together the Fan Factor of both teams to determine the Fan Attendance (FA)
3. JOURNEYMAN If a team cannot field 11 players for a league game, the team temporarily takes on a number of Journeyman players.
4. INDUCEMENTS Both coaches decide if they will purchase any Inducements for the game ahead, paid for from a team's Treasury, from 'Petty Cash', or both.
5. PRAYERS TO NUFFLE If one team now has a lower CTV than the other, it may be able to roll on the Prayers to Nuffle table once for every full 50k GP of difference in CTV.
6. DETERMINE KICKING TEAM A coin is flipped or dice are rolled (2d6 each, higher result wins) to determine which team will decide to Kick or Receive the Ball.

Post-Match Actions:

1. WINNINGS Each team receives a fee for playing,
(FA/2 + Team TD)*10k = Results
2. UPDATE DEDICATED FANS If your team won, Roll a D6. If result is equal to or higher than your current Dedicated Fans, increase your number of Dedicated Fans by 1.
If your team lost, Roll a D6. If result is less than your current Dedicated Fans, decrease your number of Dedicated Fans by 1.
If the game was a draw, neither team’s Dedicated Fans change.
3. PLAYER ADVANCEMENT Any players that have earned enough SPP may spend them on advancements, check Advancements Table.
4. HIRING, FIRING AND TEMPORARILY RETIRING New players and staff are recruited. Injured players may be dismissed or may temporarily retire. Any unwanted staff may be dismissed.
5. EXPENSIVE MISTAKES If you have 100,000 GP or more in your TREASURY, Roll a D6 and apply the result from the Expensive Mistakes Table.
