Home Field Advantage?
« on: October 09, 2020, 06:58:51 PM »
To me, one of the best qualities of college football is the home field advantage.  Is there any way to incorporate home fields into play?  I know when Penn State or LSU plays at home, there is a decided advantage for those teams.  What is everyone's thoughts?

We didn't put that in, but one idea we had was that in certain home stadiums, the first field goal the visitor made didn't count. 
It stinks, but the road team would want to go ahead and get that out of the way early, as if they're needing a FG late, it won't count unless they've made one earlier in the game.  That would make it so they don't avoid it and would account for the 3 point home field advantage used by Vegas.

We'd love to hear other ideas.

How about the home team gets one re-roll of the dice per half?

We'd like for any "house rules" to be shared out by game players and the best ones sort of rise to the top and if popular enough, maybe even make it into the game's guide book.


As our customer base grows, so too will the game player community.
