    These guys are old school

    Here is an ESPN article on the Super Bowl of electric football:

    I still have my game and players, does anyone else here still have and or play the game? I think I should venture to see this spectical is the future.

    lmao, I don't have mine anymore. I saw a clip on SB day about this. These guys are really serious about the game. Fun times, I think it would require a 12 pack of beer for me to keep occupied playing that game today.

    The one guy in the article even scripts his first 15 plays of each game, how crazy is that. Forget the beer I would need a few Captain and Cokes.

    Oh the memories, if a player was terrible you could throw him on the floor and stomp on him and he was now cut from the team :shock: no waivers for him

    I had the game as a kid. Never worked properly so we just turned on the power and watched the players vibrate all over the board. I would need alot of Crown Royal.

    Re: These guys are old school

    I remember this game, I had it when I was a kid. The motor went bad in mine after a few years of continuous use. In desperation I resorted to tappping lightly on the field to make the men move. After a few more years of that I experienced my first bout of carpal tunnel. :lol:

    I was successful in handpainting the men in Vikings colors.
