Irish Electric Football League

IEFL.JPG.31a7e0fff1a4c1cde1a253ac15b4ea68.JPG

This solitaire tournament is based on the real life Irish American Football League. The IEFL will consist of two four-team divisions. The North includes the Carrickfergus Knights, the Craigavon Cowboys, the Dublin Rebels, and the Belfast Trojans. The South includes the North Kildare Reapers, the Limerick Vikings, the Cork Admirals, and the South Dublin Panthers. Because the IAFL is not known as one of the stronger leagues in Europe, all players will be using un-tweaked, un-weighted regular rookie bases. Each team's offense will be based on what the actual team runs, or ran, in the case of defunct teams. I will post the league rules later (same set as my Portuguese league, the LPFE), but they are designed for quick games.

The North Division:

THE RULES:

I will be using a tweaked version of Beenutt's solitaire tournament rules. For reference, I have attached a copy of his 2013 Solitaire Tournament Rules. Like his college tournament, my European leagues tournament will involve over 100 teams, so first round games are one possession each starting on the 25. If both teams score, the rest of the game will be similar to a college overtime, with each team getting a possession in each round. League Championship and later round games will consist of two 15-play halves. Now here are my tweaks to his rule set: 

  1. No kickoffs, even in later rounds. Each possession starts on the 25, unless there is an interception.
  2. No extra points - I am playing games on a model 500 field, so there is not much room in the end zone.
  3. No field goals
  4. No stacking - there must be 5 yards space between two players lined up vertically. 
  5. Defensive backs may not jam wide receivers. After contact, the board is stopped and the DBs are pivoted to move downfield with the WRs. This rule does not apply to tight ends and slot receivers.
  6. No passing sticks - I will be using two six-sided dice. The quarterbacks on many of the real European teams are less than 50% on passing accuracy, so I have different levels of passing. For instance, some of the less-skilled QBs can only complete a pass with a roll of 6 or 8. If the intended receiver has a defender less than 10 yards away, a roll of boxcars is an interception. A roll of snake eyes is always an interception, going to the closest unengaged defender. 
  7. Magnets - the offense can put magnets under the bases of the QB and a RB, and the defense can put put magnets under two players, usually safeties or inside linebackers. The magnets may be removed during one of the stops, and must be removed if another player of either team contacts them.
