A failed GFI on Turn 16 then the ball scatters into a friendly player's hand in the endzone. Touchdown, or end of game straight away?

How is it in the rules?

You can check in test mode.

Hint: the /roll command let you decide the next rolls (ex: "/roll 1 4 2 6" will become 1, Push, Both Down, 2, 6 for instance). And /turn 16 let you jump to the last turn.

It's grey in the rules. Thanks Kam.

Touchdown in the client. That took absurdly long. Bed.

Seems like the more fun interpretation would be Touchdown. If brown bounces count why not the GFI scatter?

Should always be the benefit of the doubt for cool/funny plays, glad the client handles it like this!

Surely it's a turnover as soon as the failed gfi occurs. I agree that it's funnier for it to be a TD especially if the failed gfi kills the wardancer carrying the ball.

Clearly a touchdown. On page 7, in the section marked Turnovers:

"Make the armour and injury rolls for players that were knocked down, and if the ball was dropped then roll to see where it bounces to normally. Stunned players should be turned face up, and then the opposing coach may start to take his turn."

So, you roll for armour, injury, scatter the ball when the ball carrier fails his GFI. The opponent's turn does not begin until those tasks are complete.

Now, to score the touchdown, from page 15 under Touchdowns:

"A team scores a touchdown during their turn when one of their players is standing in the opposing team's End Zone while holding the ball at the end of any of your players' Actions"

It's pretty clear that if the ball is caught by a teammate after that failed GFI by the ball carrier, it must be a touchdown. The opponent's turn has not yet started.

How does the client handle a shadower who is dragged in the endzone AND out of it again while shadowing during a pass block?

Humorously, even that ridiculous case is covered by the rulebook.
