Football has been at the Ohio State University since at least 1999. We take it pretty seriously with ongoing stats such as longest winning streak, highest score (reached through doubles in the endzone, currently 82), etc. We keep stats for individuals, not team play. The endzone listed here is much to wide. It depends on the size of the table, but the endzone should only be about three inches from the edge+the width of the tape. We use narrow masking tape and count a touchdown if it crosses the plain. It wasn't mentioned but bumping is a huge part of the game. Two dice are rolled and the first can be bumped by the second. Also, we play with a g-spot. A square in the center of the endzone worth 10 points. If a player gets both die on the G at the same time it's 20 points and the opponent must shotgun a beer. Finally, and this rule is for the girls, anyone who is shut out must run a naked lap around the house. Finally, we play with rollbacks. Who ever went first does not go last. It's a nice rule for that last minute hail mary. We play this game religously here at OSU. It may not have originated here, but it should have. I have personally spread the game across the midwest. Anyway, love the game just thought I'd give some info.

I think this game originated in Bemidji, MN sometime in 1996 and then passed from there to Minneapolis via Morris, MN. I anyone can further elucidate the lineage of the game I'd like to hear from you...and in the original version the game is played to 52, swithching endzones at half time (to counter any discrepancies in the field of play) and the official endzone size is a VHS tape held lengthwise... P.S. if possible, it would be nice if any replies to this message include where you've played beer football before
