As a coach, you must instruct your players
- hinder the advance of your opponents by placing them in the capture zone,
- knock down those who get in your way, and
- break into the end zone of your opponents for a touchdown.
All your units can gain experience and receive statistical bonuses or new skills. Be careful, though, injuries are common, especially when the judge is a goblin who tends to ignore most forms of violence. Some players may even leave the field crippled or dead, ending their careers.
