Electronic Data Controls Corporation released a series of electronic board games under their "Computer Games" line, primarily consisting of two-player sports games. The games all used large wooden game boards depicting the playing field and a game matrix of various results. Each end of the game board had a set of buttons (i.e. offense and defense) that, depending on the combination pressed, would cause a light to illuminate next to one of the rows on the game matrix. The players would then consult the appropriate column to find out what happened.
