Anybody ever play this board game... NFL Strategy?

I had two friends with whom I played this game for hours upon hours and kept spiral bound notebooks of game statistics. Fortunately the guy's wives were close friends of my wife. We used to make the wives settle disputes about where the spring loaded game (red and white) ball landed. 

I still have my game that I bought in the 70's and probably some of the books of stats. Haven't played it for years and those two guys have moved away. But, thinking about introducing it to one of the team owners that plays in the two leagues that I manage.

    I had season tickets to the St. Louis Football Cardinals with those two guys. That was back from 1971 through 1987.

    For hockey this was always my favorite. I had something very similar. Spent a lot of time on my own game and even more time when I was in high school on a neighbor kid's game some 50 years ago.

    These were cool too, but, out of my price range

    Have never been a hockey fan, but had a earlier version of the first one and did enjoy playing it.

    Oh... no, the first hockey game that QB posted... but his was much older and if I remember right, it was all metal.

    Yup. Mine was too, except for the playing surface, the plexiglass behind the goals and the center ice scoreboad that also dropped the puck for faceoffs, never tairly mind you.

    But the men and the rods and gears and sides were all metal

  • Metal skaters ruled...also Minnesota north stars were awesome. Bruins fan here.

    The same era football game was cool, to a point. Remember attempting my first pass...what a let down.

    Are you talking about the vibrating football game? Yup... had one of those too! Mine had the triple feature QB that could run, pass and kick.

    How dissapointed I was passing lol.

    Yup. My game had footballs made of felt with a split on one end to go around the QBs hand.

    We would set up the play using a piece of cardboard at the line of scrimmage to hide the offense and defense. The after turning on the vibrator fkr a bit we would stop the action to pass. If the ball hit the receiver it was a completed pass. Then each team got to change the direction of some players and the vibrator was turned on again.
