You can block squigs if you want
Players can block or blitz squigs if they want to, as if they were opposing players. Squigs only get assists
from other squigs. If a squig is knocked over but not injured, make a Squig Test. If the test is failed, the
squig splits in two, as above.
Take note, however! Blocking the last squig off the pitch is a special penalty that counts as a TD for the
opposition. In addition, the offending player is sent off for the rest of the match. This works in a similar way to
scoring a TD in your opponent’s turn – re-set up and move your opponent’s turn marker along once.

*Squigs are so tiny and slippery that they automatically pass all AG-based checks required of them.
**Squigs are monumentally brainless – if the squig is pushed back following a block, use a suitable random method to
decide on which empty square it is pushed to.
***New skill:Squishy. Squishy players are automatically injured following a failed armour roll, and are removed from the
pitch.

Optional:Rare breeds
Sometimes, in order to spice up a dull game, the tournament organisers can introduce different squig types
to the pitch. If you choose to use this rule, you’ll need a way of randomly determining the variety of squig to
use when a new one is required. A die roll or customised pack of cards can be used, depending on the
nature of your squig collection. Two sample breeds are shown below.

Gnasher squigs are bigger and tougher than normal squigs. They have sharp claws and fangs
that can give you a nasty nibble. If the dice indicate that a gnasher squig would move into an
occupied square, they bite the occupying player instead of moving, using their Stab skill. If this
removes the player from the pitch, the gnasher squig will move to occupy their square. Note
that the target of the bite could be a prone or stunned player, or even another squig!
Kangaroo squigs have long, powerful legs that enable them to bound about the pitch very
quickly indeed. They have an increased move distance and if the dice indicate that they would
move into an occupied square (and they have sufficient move left) they will leap over it into the
square opposite. If they don’t have enough movement, or the square is occupied, move the
squig as usual.
