Tournament Rules

As this tournament is quite close to the EuroBowl Open, we have decided that it would be a good thing to use the same rules as the EuroBowl, to allow coaches to test out their roster for the big event.

TMBBT - Custom kick-off table

Twin Mountain Blood Bowl Tournament custom kick-off table.
(All changes to the original kick-off table shown in the CRP in red)

2. Get the Ref: The fans exact gruesome revenge on the referee for some of the dubious decisions he has made, either during this match or in the past. His replacement is so intimidated that he can be more easily persuaded to look the other way. Each team receives 1 additional Bribe to use during this game. A Bribe allows you to attempt to ignore one call by the referee for a player who has committed a foul to be sent off, or a player armed with a secret weapon to be banned from the match. Roll a D6: on a roll of 2-6 the bribe is effective (preventing a turnover if the player was ejected for fouling), but on a roll of 1 the bribe is wasted and the call still stands! Each bribe may be used once per match.

3. Riot: The trash talk between two opposing players explodes and rapidly degenerates, involving the rest of the players. If the receiving team´s turn marker is on turn 7 for the half, both teams move their turn marker back one space as the referee resets the clock back to before the fight started. If the receiving team has not yet taken a turn this half the referee lets the clock run on during the fight and both team´s turn markers are moved forward one space. Otherwise roll a D6. On a 1-3, both teams turn markers are moved forward one space. On a 4-6, both team´s turn markers are moved back one space.

4. Good Defence: The kicking team´s coach may choose to re-arrange his players on the line of scrimmage and in the wide zones. The only player´s eligible to be moved is the one´s positioned on the line of scrimmage and in the wide zones. The receiving team must remain in the set-up chosen by their coach.

5. High Kick: The ball is kicked very high, allowing a player on the receiving team time to move into the perfect position to catch it. Any one player on the receiving team who is not in an opposing player´s tackle zone may be moved into the square where the ball will land no matter what their MA may be, as long as the square is unoccupied.

6. Cheering Fans: Each coach rolls a D3 and adds their team´s FAME (see page 18) and the number of cheerleaders on their team to the score. The team with the highest score is inspired by their fans cheering and gets an extra re-roll this half. If both teams have the same score, then both teams get a re-roll.

7. Changing Weather: Make a new roll on the Weather table (see page 20). Apply the new Weather roll. If the Weather roll was a “Nice” result, then a gentle gust of wind makes the ball scatter one extra square in a random direction before landing. The kicking team may use the kick skill to prevent the ball from scattering the extra square. In order to use the Kick skill, see the conditions in the CRP on page 65.

8. Brilliant Coaching: Each coach rolls a D3 and adds their FAME (see page 18) and the number of assistant coaches on their team to the score. The team with the highest total gets an extra team re-roll this half thanks to the brilliant instruction provided by the coaching staff. In case of a tie both teams get an extra team re-roll.

9. Quick snap! The offence start their drive a fraction of time before the defence is ready. Catching the kicking team flat-footed. All of the players on the receiving team are allowed to move one square. This is a free move and may be made into any adjacent empty square, ignoring tackle zones. It may be used to enter the opposing half of the pitch.


10. To Blitz! or not to Blitz? The defence start their drive a fraction of time before the offence is ready, catching the receiving team flat-footed. The kicking team recieves a free “bonus” turn. However, after each Action roll a D6, on a 1 the free turn ends. This roll may not be re-rolled. Players that are in an enemy tackle zone at the beginning of this free turn may not perform an action. The kicking team may use team re-rolls during the bonus turn. If any player suffers a turnover then the bonus turn ends immediately.

11. Throw a Bloodweiser: An enraged fan hurls a large Bloodweiser bottle at one of the players on the opposing team. Each coach rolls a D6 and adds their FAME (see page 18) to the roll. The fans of the team that rolls higher are the ones that threw the Bloodweiser. In the case of a tie a Bloodweiser bottle is thrown at each of them! Decide randomly which player in the other team was hit (only players on the pitch are eligible) and roll for armor on that player who is knocked down.

12. Pitch Invasion: Both coaches roll a D6 for each opposing player on the pitch and add their FAME (see page 18) to the roll. If a roll is 6 or more after modification then roll for armor on that player who is knocked down. If the armor is broken then the player is Stunned no injury roll required (players with the Ball & Chain skill are KO´d, no armor roll required). A roll of 1 before adding FAME will always have no effect.

Dice:
Before each match you and your opponent must agree on one set of tournament legal dice to share throughout the match.

Tournament Match ups:
The first round will be set up so that coaches from the same league do not have to play each other (if possible). Stunty vs. stunty in the first round (if possible).

Tournament pairings will be setup in a Swiss style. You will be paired up with coaches who have a similar score as yourself after each round.
No Overtimes will be played!

The Scoring system has been adjusted to hopefully get the most accurate representation of how everyone has performed. But no matter what is done, there will be ties in the standings.

This will be the order ties are broken in:
1.      Total TD+CAS score.
(Count both for and against. Add positive and negative score to get your total.)
2.      Head to Head record
3.      Most TD
4.      Most CAS

If it is still a tie at that point, the tournament organizer will use his best judgment in finding a way to break the tie.

Painting:
All teams are expected to meet the minimum painted guidelines. They must have 3 colors on them and have had some attempt at making them appear finished. Minimum requirements are 3 colors and based. Miniatures that don’t meet the minimum requirements are not allowed on the pitch.

Sideline figures do not need to be represented with a miniature as stated in the CRP rules and does not need to be painted.

Awards:
Prices will be awarded to the winner, the runner up, the most violent coach, the highest scoring coach, the stunty cup and the wooden spoon for placing last. Please note that prices may vary from miniatures, dice, wooden objects and diplomas.

A coach can only claim one of these and will have to spread the wealth if he wins more than one.

Other awards may be given out as well; participants who wish to give out their own awards can contact the organizers at twinmountainbowl@gmail.com to have their award added to the official ones.
