Ironman Football

When the grass was real and helmets were optional. Two to eight players are league franchise owners from 1920 to 1925. Manage your team, schedule games, choose lineups and substitutions, count gate receipts, and try to win the championship while keeping your team together through tough financial times. 250 cards represent franchises, teams, star players, and actions. Players are rated for offense, defense, and special teams ability. Rules, charts, and record sheets included. Can your team survive injuries, rules changes, and compete with the likes of Jim Thorpe and Red Grange? $12.00

What the reviewers said:

"Highly recommended"
"...one of my favorite games of the year."
"A real talent for atmosphere and period feel."
"This is no backdated NFL sim; it has guts, and feeling for the subject. Personally, I thought it was one of the most convincing and engaging systems I have played since We the People."
--Mike Siggins in Sumo #26

"I'm not a big boardgame guy, but a game like Ironman Football could bring me back in a second. This is an outstanding concept for a game...Fun yet detailed ...(and) All those old-time players."
-- Thomas Gerbasi in Sidelines Vol.2 Issue 3

"Loads of interesting twists. In all, Ironman Football is a "hoot" to play. It will take you back to a time when the owners were greedy and the players were stupid - opposite to what we have today."
-- Bruce McFarlane in Canadian Wargamers Journal #44
