FCA Cubed Match
Rick Garrard came up with some rules in early 2000 that were all
the rage for awhile on the TNM list. His idea was to do two
things: simulate a small indy fed and do a circuit that could
run a large number of cards in a short amount of time. Rick used
the Memphis territory and ran over 10 years worth of cards which
can be found at
http://garrard.8m.com/tnmrg/WELCOME.HTM His starting roster was
Jerry Lawler, Eddie Gilbert, Eric Embry, Jeff Jarrett, and PG-13
(Wolfie D & J.C. Ice).
Select a starting roster. It needs to be four singles wrestlers
and one tag team. Hire all to 52 cards. You will need three
titles: a main singles title, a TV title, and tag team titles.
If you should happen to end up later with a large number of
cruiserweights or female wrestlers, feel free to add a title for
those as needed. You'll be running run card a week with usually
5 or 6 matches per card. No supercards so a 52 card contract
ends up being the same as a one year deal.
RUNNING THE CIRCUIT
On your first card, your four singles will face four mystery
opponents and your tag team will face a mystery team ("m" key
gives you mystery opponents).
Within the next few weeks, you need to hold matches to decide
your champions. You can decide them however you want.
You can only hire people via the "m". When someone's contract is
up, you may only rehire them for 6 cards. The original TNM-RG
rules only allowed for resigning someone once but most people
who did these circuits would resign a wrestler as many times as
they want (and that the wrestler is willing).
When the year is up, its traditional to recap the year listing
title reigns, Match-of-the-Year, and such. As for your
"mainstays" who got the 52 card contracts, you can rehire as
many as you want for 52 cards (if they are willing) or you can
replace them with other wrestlers. Either way, you need to go
into each year with 4 singles wrestlers and a tag team signed
for 52 cards.
