Sand Traps for Zombie Golf


Tonight will see the launch of a new Golf Course (which I still have to design) and we decided that it would introduce Sand traps to the game.  This of course is something that isn't in the original All Things Zombie supplement Zombie Golf.  And it's quite possibly not there for good reason.  But as you probably know by now, we like tinkering with the game a bit.  Mostly because its such fun and we keep wanting to push the limits of the game that little bit further.

So without further ado, I present the rules we'll be testing out tonight.  Why not give them a go yourself?  And even better, drop me a comment below and let me know how it goes?
We'll be using a maximum of two sand traps to each hole.

If a ball lands within 1” of a sand trap, there’s a chance it may roll into the trap.  To determine whether this happens or not, use the following procedure:

  •          Check to see how many dice passed the FORE! Check which put the ball in this location.  This will be either two, one or none.
  •          Roll that many dice against your Rep and consult the SAND TRAP Chart. 

SAND TRAP Check
#D6 Passed
Result
2
The ball stays on the green.  Breathe a sigh of relief and carry on as normal.
1
Roll 1D6.  On a 1-2 the ball stays where it is on the green. On a 3-6 it rolls into the sand trap.
0
The ball has landed in the sand trap.

If the ball lands in the Sand Trap, count your stroke.  On your next stroke you will need to roll on the OUT OF THE TRAP chart. 

To do this, roll 2D6 versus the character’s Rep and consult the following chart.


OUT OF THE TRAP Check
#D6 Passed
Result
2
Success!  Place your ball 3” from the edge of the trap in the direction of your choice.
1
Clips the edge!  Roll 1D6
1-3= the ball escapes the trap, landing 2” from the edge of the trap 45 degrees to the left or right. To determine which, roll 1D6, odds to the left, even to the right.
4-6= lands in the trap.  Count one stroke and roll again on this chart next stroke. 
0
The ball barely leaves the sand.  Count a stroke and roll again on this chart for your next stroke. 

Right!  I'm off to see how my sand traps are drying out.  Hope they are ready for this evening!
