Making Special Teams Special Again...

...while I really enjoy designer Stephen Glenn's football board game 1st & Goal and thought that the individual dice sets for each team was a great idea, I haven't enjoyed the "duct tape & bailing wire" d20 fix that was originally published to deal with how these wildly varying expansion team dice sets messed with the base game's special teams rules.

Well, my griping days are over - somehow I missed that Stephen and R&R Games have web-published individual cards for each expansion team that allows you to play by the original rules without having 70 yard field goals. (You can download them as a PDF from the R&R Games website.)

If you have NO IDEA what I'm talking about, you can read Erik Arneson's excellent review of 1st & Goal on the Opinionated Gamers website. (Erik was the winner of the 1st & Goal tournament at The Gathering of Friends last year... and knocked me out in the 3rd round on his way to victory. Sigh.)
