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 1974
version which includes 34 different offensive plays and 12 defensive
plays. This version included a sticker sheet that was to be applied to
the special teams card to reflect the rules changes for the 1974
season. It also came with a rules addendum sheet explaining these
The game parts are in VERY
GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The game includes a complete sets of
Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams cards, the NFL playbook, the
1974 rules changes addendum, the 1974 special teams rules changes
sticker overlays, the game console as well as the original inner
packing materials. The instructions are printed on the inside of the
box lid. I have tested the timer mechanism and it works but is finicky.
It would probably be best to turn the timing knob manually rather than
use the automatic timer. The springs still have plenty of tension. The
play cards are in good shape with no stains, writing, creases or tears.
Overall I would grade the game parts 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition
The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. It has some
general shelf wear including 3 split corners that have been mended with
clear tape. No bad stains or writing. I would grade it a 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.
