Super Aussie Rules Football
A downloadable game
A silly party game about coming up with the rules of a football-like sport.
You will need at least 4 players, a piece of paper to write some rules on, and a stack of cards with some sweet verbs on them.
Start with some basic rules on the sheet: What is a ball? How do you move the ball? Where do you play? How do you win?
Each round 2 players will represent teams playing a match of Super Aussie
Rules Football and will play out cards to represent how they try to win.
Each player starts with 6 cards. One player will start off by playing a card and using the prompt to explain how their team scores more goals than the opponent. The other player then plays a card and explains how their team stops the opponent from scoring those goals. Then, reverse the positions and each player plays another card.
Another player is the Referee and will be the final say on who wins a match, keeping to the rules as currently written. If anything the players do breaks the current rules of the game, they immediately forfeit all goals and their opponent wins the current match.
If one team has clearly won the match, you may move on. If there is a draw, play one more time with players revealing their cards simultaneously and explaining how they score more goals.
At the end of the match, the other players are the Super Rules Council
and will add new rules to the rule sheet to shape the game.
The goal is to craft the game of Super Aussie Rules Football into something that is fun and fulfilling to play and to watch. Or is profitable and marketable.
Rules cannot contradict previous rules and old rules cannot be removed.
You may also ban a card that has already been played and destroy it.
Pass the cards around and refill to 6 cards and rotate roles for the next match.
Continue playing until you feel you have crafted a truly SUPER Aussie Rules Football or until you get bored or hungry or tired or whatever, I don't make the rules here.
Here's an example of starting rules:
- The game is played within a designated area.
- There are two teams of the same number of players on each team.
- Goals are scored by kicking a ball between two tall posts on either end of the playing area.
- Players may use any part of their bodies to move the ball.
- The team with the higher number of goals at the end of the match wins.
- A match lasts a definite amount of time.
- No dogs or teen wolves.
Here are some example verbs for the cards:
