I loved this and other games of its ilk in my youth before graduating to simulation (Strat-o-matic). If my old copy were found in my parents' attic, I would love to take it out for a spin, but I would never spend more than a few dollars on it now. NFL Strategy does the same thing with more variety and more flair, with the better playbook.

OMG! I had this game as a kid. It's lost to the sands of time but I recall playing it until it was wearing out. Thank you user Untioch for your Football games geek list and for it's inclusion of this one!

(Box 4).

Very similar to the classic Tudor NFL STRATEGY; in fact, this sits somewhere between that title and their kiddie version NFL STRATEGY JR.

Before console football games this was a statisically accurate and fun way to simulate NFL football. Halcyon days. APBA make a way more detailed football sim.

Simple and fast, the best of the non-team specific football sims I've played. Results sometimes strain believability, but I'm willing to forego a bit of statistical granularity for the right feel, and this game has it. Both offensive and defensive playcalling really make a difference, and play results seem realistic. Spinner system for resolving play results is archaic, but for the diehards, substituting a pair of d10s would do the trick.

A rating based on fond memories. Played TO DEATH as a kid, at least through the end of middle school. After that, I lost interest in armchair sports. The other big winner in my household was [url=http://boardgamegeek.com/image/55472/sports-illustrated-baseball]Superstar Baseball[/url]. Good times, simple times.
