Hello, I purchased the game in January, and I just purchased 10 more teams, (actually 14 with the sale).  I would like to get one of the cloth fields that I saw you were using now.  How do I go about getting one of those fields?

Thank you!
Just let us know and we'll include one.  They come with all base game orders, but we add them in for past customers in their next order.  What order number was yours?

Speaking of which, @OrangeAfroMan , zap me a pdf or image file of the field...

My most recent order was #557.  It was a 14 team order.  I don’t remember what my original order number was when I first bought the game back in January.

We'll include a field with adjusted first down markers with your most recent order.

I have already received my order #557.  Do I have to do another order to receive a new field?

No, we'll just send you one.

Hi! Playing Whoa Nellie! for the first time.  I was wondering if you had certain down-and-distance rules to use certain solo playcalling cards.  Like what down and distance would there have to be to use the "When you are on offense and your team is...PASS HEAVY" Opponent Defense card, for instance. Along those same lines, it seems like there's potential when you're playing solo for there to roll some curious offense playcalls (say, running the ball on 3rd or 4th and 11). Probably should be some down-and-distance rules guiding that as well.

Thanks,
Dave O'Connell

@jumpthecup 
In our research, we found a greater run/pass disparity when it comes to score and time left in the game than down and distance.  Passing teams tend to pass and running teams tend to run, and the 'give up and run a draw play' on 3rd downs has become extremely common.
