An interesting looking new football game is on the horizon from R&R Games entitled 1st & Goal. Two to four players coach opposing football teams as they clash across the frozen tundra of… Well, you get the idea. I even see that there will be expansion sets including individual teams, with unique characteristics, to bring more personality to the game.
From R&R Games:
The game pits two football teams in a classic gridiron match. Playable by 2-4 players, ‘coaches’ call plays using the cards available in their hands. Yardage gained or lost is determined by the roll of the dice. Strategic play calling makes all the difference… The right offensive play might get a lot of yardage… unless the defense sets up correctly to stop it.
Fumbles, interceptions, sacks, penalties, deep passes, breakaway runs… it’s all in here!
CONTENTS: 7 Team dice, 3 Play dice, 61 Offense cards, 61 Defense cards, magnetic Football, game board, magnetic 1st down flags, 1 DFL* coin, 6 score/timeout tokens and illustrated rules.
Six divisions of customized teams are also available as expansion sets, adding a whole new level of excitement to the core game. Each team supplies unique characteristics in passing, running and defense. These R&R Football League (RFL) expansion sets are broken up into divisions of 4 unique teams each.
Twenty-four North American cities have been awarded franchises for these new RFL teams!
