Set. Set. Hike!
- This football set includes: 26 2 players, 1 referee, 2 goalposts, 24 x 36 washable felt field.
- A 10 x 6 x 5 stackable container with attached lid and handle.
- While the toy is totally open ended, here are some fun ways to make it into a game.
Get some dice (5) and index cards (4) and a coin...Write PASS Play and RUN Play on two of the index cards. Rules:
Flip coin to determine who goes first; Each player will have one index card that reads run and one that reads pass; Player that wins the coin flip goes first and starts on the twenty yard line;
- Each player chooses one of his index cards and picks either a pass or run play. (dont let the other player know which play you are running).
- Set up players for the type of play you think the other player is running. Each player will put down his/her index card at the same time.
- Roll dice: Defense has two dice, offense has three dice.
- Subtract the total of the Offense dice from the total of the defensive dice. If both players called for a run, divide the difference by two.
- If the players choose different plays run or pass then double the difference between the offensive and defensive dice count.
- If the Offense rolls a total less than the Defense then it is a Turnover and the other team takes possession. (rule submitted by Benjamin 5, Somersworth NH!)
Each player on offense gets four chances to get a first down, 10 yards. Each player gets three offensive turns during a quarter, and there are four quarters. If the game ends in a tie, play college rules overtime. In College Overtime each team gets one possession starting at their opponents 20 yard line.
