This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   3 games are described, 2 others are mentioned. Houston defeats an unnamed team, then plays in Mexico City (oblong balls introduced), then Tokyo (3 oblong balls in play at once). An all-star game in New York with no time limit is to be played. The story ends prior to the start of the game. Houston is shown playing 3 games. They defeat Madrid (with no recent rule changes), defeat Tokyo (no penalties) then defeat New York (no penalties, no time limit). The movie ends with Jonathon scoring the only goal and with one survivor on each team.
