Step 1: Materials
1. Sheets of LINED paper or printer paper cut to 8" x 10 1/2"
Step 2: The Making of the Football
1. Get Materials
2. Cut paper in half
3. Fold the half sheet in half
4. Fold down the top right corner
5. Fold the part you just folded down
6. Repeat 4&5 untill you have about 2 in. left of paper
7. Rip the remaining 2in. of paper in half so you have about one in. on the bottom
8. Fold the bottom left corner up
9. Tuck in the flap at the bottom into the slot just beside it.
Step 3: Make More!
You have come a long way but you know nothing on what this instructable in realy about. But before you know you have to have players. A ful set of 11 players per player. Each player has to has to eleven guys or it will not work. If you like my Giants football team in the picture see my other instructable how to customize your paper footballs.
Step 4: Setting Up
Step 5: The Start of the Game
Step 6: The Plays
The plays are almost the same whether you are kicking or receiving.
FIRST: SETUP THE OFFENCE AND DEFENCE (Only on 1st and 3rd downs)
1. Offence sets up his QB at the line of scrimmage, and sets up his other 10 players as receivers down field wherever he wants.
2. Defense sets up 2 players on the line of scrimmage, and sets his other 9 players in the field near the offence's receivers (or wherever he wants)
3. Offence can then move 2 of his receivers to anywhere on the field (i.e. 2 guys in motion)
SECOND: RUN/PASS A PLAY
1. Kick/Flip/Flick/Push/Shove the QB either to the side or forward. It can go in the air or stay on the ground.
2. If it hits a defensive player, or goes out of bounds, there is no gain on the play and the down is over.
3. If it hits an offensive receiver, move the line of scrimmage 10 yards forward from the receiver and start a new set of downs.
4. If it lands on the field without touching any other players, move the line of scrimmage to where the football landed. (if it made it 10 yards past the original line of scrimmage, you get a new set of downs.)
- You only setup your players on 1st and 3rd downs. Leave them in place for 2nd and 4th downs.
- You can move the QB straight backwards behind the line of scrimmage as far back as you want, or you can leave him right on the line of scrimmage.
- If you want to do a "screen pass" or an "end run" you can flip the ball sideways on your first down (so he's out of the way of the 2 defensive linemen), and then flip it forward on your next down (before the defensive gets a chance to reset)
Step 7: Scoring a Touchdown
Step 8: (PAT) Point After Touchdown
Step 9: Field Goals
1. Move the ball 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage
2. You can kick from the ground or from your hand kneeling or standing.
3. You get an attempt for every 10 yards you are from the end zone. Example: if you are trying to make a 40-yard field goal, you get 4 attempts to make it. You stop trying after one of the kicks is good.
