Board Game Rank: Not Ranked


Spend an afternoon on the 'ice'. Hockey played the electronic way has all the fun and fast-paced action of the real thing . . . Your ingenuity keeps the game fascinating. Outwit your opponent for a goal.

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.

This sounds more like an electronic game (like Simon) than a board game. =(

Picked up at Good Will

This is a board game, not Simon. Instead of selecting options and consulting a chart, the electronic circuitry does the "look up".
