After years of extensive research and testing, the Strat-O-Matic Game Company developed a football game that is the answer to every fan's dream. It is actually three games in one: A basic version, an advanced version, and a super-advanced version. All versions may be played on a solitaire or head-to-head basis. The game depicts all the realistic aspects of football and gives complete control to you, the coach. The portrayal of the actual running, passing, kicking and defensive ability of real NFL players is truly amazing!
Since the release of our first football edition in 1968, Strat-O-Matic Football has sold out each year. In fact, the older player card sets have become collector's items and sell for a substantial premium over their original prices.
This unique game provides an incomparable visual dimension that allows you unbelievable freedom of movement. Your formation's strengths and weaknesses are in full view of your opposing coach and yourself! This creates a true battle of wits!
For the football purist, Super Advanced Rules are included and may be used if so desired. These rules provide for additional offensive and defensive formations and strategies including 3-4 defense, nickel defense, full-house backfield offense and 3 wide receiver offense.
As a result of the complete nature of each player's card, the Elementary version of Strat-O-Matic Pro Football is played in 45 minutes, and the advanced version in 75 minutes.
