NFL Strategy Football Game
There were a number of
different versions of this game produced over the years. The plays
included with the game vary depending on the edition. This is the 1976
version which includes 34 different offensive plays and 12 defensive
plays. This version did away with the mechanical timing mechanism and
replaced it with a simple hand-controlled dial. Although the mechanical
timer is a really neat idea it usually became frozen if left unused for
a length of time.
The game parts are in
EXCELLENT condition. The game includes a complete sets of Offensive,
Defensive and Special Teams cards, the NFL playbook and the game
console as well as the original inner packing materials. The
instructions are printed on the inside of the box lid. The booklet
shows some handling wear but no stains or writing. One of the offense
cards has a minor crease on the edge and one of the defense cards has a
smudge on it.. Otherwise the play cards are in nice shape with no
tears, creases, stains or writing. Overall I would grade the game parts
7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in GOOD-VERY GOOD condition. It has
typical shelf wear including some sun-fading on the lid and a few
puncture marks in the lid. No split corners, minimal staining and no
writing. There is tape on the sides and the box bottom that was used to
hold the lid shut. Box bottom has some scraping at the corners and
edges. I would grade it a 4-5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
(10): I will only give this grade
to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):
Shows virtually no use. Seldom if ever played.
Perhaps some very light handling creases to the
or other minor flaws with the game parts. Boxes will have
the slightest hint of shelf wear. EXCELLENT (7-8):
The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.
some light handling creases or other signs of
careful use. Board might have just a hint of color loss or
corners. Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or
some minor dishing or a very light stain. VERY GOOD (5-6):
The game was not especially well cared for but it still has
faired pretty well. Game
parts will show obvious use but nothing will be torn, badly
stained or have any serious damage. Box may have
rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners,
minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape. No major
damage and artwork will still be generally attractive. GOOD (3-4):
Obviously no care was taken with the game but it is still playable as
is. Game parts show
considerable use but the game is complete with all parts in
condition. Box may have staining, writing, split
dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still
Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.
Game will be missing
parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and
be missing aprons or badly torn.
