Cutting Edge, for 1965...
September 15, 2003

I was 10 years old when I received this game as a Christmas gift. It taught me the plays and strategies of football. It worked through a box about 15 inches by 30 inches with a light inside and a translucent screen on top. There was also a sliding piece of cardboard. On top of the translucent screen you would place an offensive play, face down. The plays were pieces of dark green paper with a white line and the 'O's' of the offensive set. On top of this the defense placed their formation. You covered the 2 pieces of paper with the cardboard slide. You switched on the light and the fun and technology began... You would slowly pull the slide out. It revealed the white line which deeked through the players. If it ran into a defensive 'X', the play ended there and you began the cycle again. Compared to the vibrating electric football games where players ended up dancing around the field, this game really made you think about situations and plays. I'll always remember driving my Dad nuts by throwing on first down and running screen passes on short yardage situations. But I beat him more often than not.
