The Blood Bowl field, showing grid reference system.
Passing ranges. From square A1.
The coach who wins a coin toss chooses who takes the first penalty. The coach not taking the penalty selects a player and places him prone on one of the two centre squares of the pitch. The coach taking the penalty selects a player and places him (standing up) on the other centre square. The standing player must then commit a foul on the prone player. Roll to see if the referee notices as normal. If the foul is noticed, the fouling team loses the match on penalties. If the referee misses the foul, the fouling coach selects another player and places him prone on the pitch in any square adjacent to another player. The other coach selects another player and places him standing next to the new prone player, and commits a foul on him.
Continue this process, adding new players and committing fouls, until the referee notices a foul and awards the game to the other team. On its turn, each team must take a foul action, which may include movement, and may not take any other action - prone players may not stand up. Fouls may be assisted if any players are in a position to do so. Injured players are removed from the field as normal. If a team cannot take a foul action at any point, it loses the match.
Note that it is not necessary for the teams to have taken equal numbers of fouls. The first one to be noticed loses, so choose carefully if you win the toss!
