Indoor Football

Indoor Football

    To make a football, fold a piece of notebook paper into a triangle, about as long as your finger.  Use tape to hold it together.  Next find a table, any size will do.  The object in table football is the same as in regular football: to score as many touchdowns as possible during the game.
    To score a touchdown, flick the football with your finger from your end of the table to the edge of the table at your opponents end.  if any part of the football hangs over the edge but doesn’t fall off, then you have scored.  Starting from your own edge of the table, you have four tries to flick the football to the opposite edge.  But if the football goes off the edge, it becomes your opponents turn.
    After a touchdown, you may try for an extra point.  These are scored by standing the football on-end with one hand and then flicking it with a finger of your other hand upward through the goal posts.  The goal posts are formed by your opponent.  Each hand makes a fist near the edge of the table.  Index fingers point so that they touch, making a crossbar.  Thumbs then point straight up, making the uprights.
    You get to try for a field goal when your opponent has flicked the football off the end of the table three times without scoring a touchdown.
