Stunty Slam 14 – September 10th 2022

The Waterbowl loves Stunties, and after creating the Stunty Cup back in the early days of the Waterbowl Weekend, we then created the Stunty Slam!

It’s the World’s* longest running Stunty tournament, and in 2022 it’s back once again for its 14th edition.

Once again it is a NAF sanctioned event (variations)

The Rounds:
1 – Winter Weather
The icy conditions have made it treacherous underfoot, and it is extremely slippy!

The ice means that players may rush 3 times, rather than the normal 2. However, the ice makes it hard to keep control. The direction of each rush is made using the throw in template.

The coach makes the direction roll before they make the rush roll.

If the player collides with another player, roll a d6 for each player.

On a 4+ the player is placed prone (there is no armour/injury roll). If the moving player is not placed prone, they can continue to Rush. If the Rushing player is knocked down a Turnover is caused. If the Rushing player collides with one of their teammates and knocks them down a turnover is not caused.

When a player rushes when attempting to Blitz, direction rolls must still be made. This means that the player might miss their target once or twice before finding their aim (or they might miss them all together!)

If a player misses their intended target when Blitzing and instead connects with a different player, treat this as a collision.

2 – Teleporters

At the start of each half before the players are set up, each coach places three Teleporter tokens on 3 squares of their choice within their own half. 

After teams are set up, but before the kick-off is resolved, each teleporter moves d3 squares in a random direction (use a d8 and the scatter template)

Teleporters cannot scatter off the pitch, but they can scatter into the opposing half. If a teleporter scatters onto another teleporter, both scatter again.

If the ball lands on a teleporter and then lands on the same one when teleporting, the ball is ejected to a random square adjacent to the teleporter.

If the ball goes into the teleporter from kick-off and ends up in the opposition’s half this will result in a touchback.

A player may enter onto a Teleporter square using 1 square of movement as normal. The player then rolls a d6 to see which Teleporter they are transported to.

If the player roll the same number as the Teleporter they entered into, they are immediately placed in the reserves box. If this player was the Ball Carrier then a turnover is caused.

Players exit the Teleporter via a random direction, determined by a d8 roll using the scatter template. If another player is blocking that square, they are pushed back. Exiting a teleporter costs 1 square of MA.

You may attempt to pass the ball through a Teleporter.

If the ball lands on a Teleporter, it will pass to another Teleporter in the same way a player would.

If a member of your team catches it when it comes out of the second Teleporter, a Turnover is not caused, and you may continue your turn.

If the ball Teleports back to the same Teleporter it started in, it simply scatters one square.

You may block a player into a Teleporter as if it were an empty square. 

3 – Spuds check + Clone Ball
The teams are playing their last game in the most feared stadium in the Old World – the Neue Den. The crowd are baying for the blood of both sides, the atmosphere is not for the nervous and some players will buckle under the pressure! These guys are here to see blood, not touchdowns!

A player has to show that they have the ‘spuds’ to score.

When a ball carrying player approaches the line, they have to make a ‘spuds check’.

This is not rerollable.

On a 2+, everything is fine and they can go that final square into the endzone and score.

However, on a 1 the the player does not have the ‘spuds’ to proceed. Their turn ends with them one step from touchdown glory… and possibly ripe for a mauling!

Similarly, if a player is already in the endzone and is awaiting a pass/hand-off, they have to make the ‘spuds check’ to see if they have the bravery to catch the ball and provoke the ire of the baying hordes around them!

On a 1, the player refuses to make the catch and the ball is scattered 1 square.

A failed spuds check is not a Turnover.

This means that there is the chance for protection to arrive for the ball carrying runner.

If the catch is refused, then the turn may continue if the ball lands in someone else’s hands…

If the ball carrying player is thrown, there is no need for a spuds check if you scatter into the endzone.

However, if you land and then have to move into the endzone, a spuds check applies.

A spuds check is rolled before you Rush into the endzone, or before a catch roll is made in the endzone.

Clone Ball: Play once kick-off has been resolved, but before the receiving team’s turn begins. 

If the ball is on the ground then a second ball materialises in the same square and is scattered d6 squares from the original ball.

The first player to cross into the opponent’s end zone with a ball rolls a d6. On a 1-3 the ball is a clone and it vanishes into thin air! On a 4+ the ball is not a clone, and a TD is scored.

A player may not carry more than one ball at a time.
