Proposal: Moving Goalposts

Passes 3-0. — Quirck

Add to rule “Calvinball” subrule “Scoring” with this text:

All Children have a numerical “Score” which defaults to zero and is tracked in the GNDT.

If a Child or their Best Friend possesses the Ball, the Child may attempt to score by making a story post with the title “I throw between X and Y.” where X and Y are any two members of the opposing team, and rolls DICE5 to determine the outcome: on 1 the Ball is intercepted by X. On 2, 3, or 4 the Child ‘s score is increased by one and the Ball is dropped. On 5 the Ball is intercepted by Y.

You see Billy and Suzy, members of your rivals, the green team, standing far apart from eachother. A beautiful empty section stretches between them, and you can see your teammate Georgie waving to you behind them. You tighten your grip on the ball and take aim…

Scoring carries a high chance of the enemy coming into possession of the ball, hopefully to make gameplay smooth and balanced.

(And I’m afraid I’m going to have to idle out at this point, life is getting a bit too busy. The ruleset recommends that I make a comment to this effect, so here it is. As I read things, Tick-Tock’s vote remains valid even after I’ve gone.)
