Example of play

Here is the match between Milan and Juventus, an Italian derby. First of all, we have to decide how many possible Attack Opportunites the two teams will get for each half of the match.

Milan has a value of 15 in the Shots per Game field plus 11 in the Shot Conceded field, for a total of 26. Juventus has 31 (21+10). So the total 57, halved by two (rounded down) 28 Attack Opportunities for each half of the game.

Now you have to build up the Play Flow Chart for both team. We start with Milan. As usual, you start building the Play Flow Chart with the Wasted Action value (from 01 to the total of Milan's Wasted Chances value plus Juventus Defence); in this case Milan has a Wasted Chances basic value of 09 and Juventus a 44 value for Defence; so Milan has the range 01-53 in his Play Flow Chart occupied by the Wasted Action result. No you have to calculate the Foul Situation range on Milan's Play Flow Chart. This value is the sum of Milan's Foul for and Juventus' Foul against (15+14). So on the Play Flow Chart the 72-00 range is occupied by Foul Situation. This leaves the range 54-71 to Shot Opportunity (remember, there are good chances that also a Foul Situation may result in a Shot Opportunity).

Now, we repeat the same procedure for Juventus. Her Play Flow Chart is as following: Wasted Action 01-55, Shot Opportunity 56-76 and Foul Situation 77-00.

Now we compares the Aerial Superiority: Milan has it for 2 points (13 against 11), so the revised Play Flow Charts are as follows: Milan Wasted Action 0-51, Shot Opportunity 52-71, Foul Situation 72-00. Juventus has Wasted Action 0-57, Shot Opportunity 58-76, Foul Situation 77-00.

We can start the match.

Home team is Juventus, so she has the first chance to get Possession. Juventus Possession value is 49. The roll of the dice result in "42", so Juventus gets the first opportunity. Roll on the Play flow Chart: "33", Wasted Chance (but no Counterattack situation, that would have been triggered by a roll of 11 or less). First Attack Opportunity wasted. For the next one, Milan is the first to roll; his Possession value is 48: "22". Milan's Turn to try to do something interesting with the ball. The roll on the Play Flow Chart is "88" and it determines a Foul Situation. First of all, you have to check for possible disciplinary sanction against the player who made the foul. Juventus Discipline value is 24. You roll a percentage dice and obtain 36. No sanction this time. Now, let's see which kind of Foul Situation is this: You roll a percentage dice: "1-10" result on a Penalty roll; "11-35" is a shot on goal from a Free Kick situation; 36 or plus is a Shot Opportunity. Milan's roll is 65, so we have a simple Shot Opportunity. Milan has a 27 value for Shot on Target. The roll is 15. It is on target! Now we have to see if the shot becomes a goal, or the keeper does his job. Milan's Goal value is 29. The roll is 53. Buffon saves!

Two Opportunities gone, 26 left! The third one sees Juventus as the first team to get the chance, but the roll for Possession is 86, much over her Possession value. Chance could go to Milan, but also is Possession roll of 77 is too high. Opportunity gone for both team.

For the alternate chance of Possession rule, Milan rolls again: 15. He gets another opportunity. Roll of 06. This a Counterattack for Juventus! In the basic game, without optional rules, a Counterattack

results directly in a Shot Opportunity for the Counterattacking team. Juventus has a 33 value for Shot on Target: 58. The shot finishes on the stands....

Play proceeds this way for all the Attack Opportunities for each half.
