Breakaway Football

Card-driven American football coaching strategy game

Breakaway Football is a middleweight, 1-4 player, card-driven strategy game where you are the Head Coach calling all the Offensive and Defensive plays for one of 4 unique teams.

Using realistic football strategies, outwit your opponent and create exciting big plays called "Breakaways" - huge gains on Offense, drive-killing sacks and turnovers on Defense.

Breakaway Football plays in just 90 minutes (60 minutes for the Solo game).

The strength of the design is in the simplicity of the game engine. The “Game Day Deck” captures all the probability of real football into a single card pull. Simply compare the play calls and apply the modifier on the Game Day Card. Luck cuts both ways, so your strategy wins the day!

Breakaway Football focuses on creating a plausible, compelling football narrative, where you feel the tug of war, the ebb and flow, and the drama of competition.

Team playbooks are inspired by real Pro and College teams: - Maulers (1982 Washington Redskins) - Pharaohs (2012 New Orleans Saints)

Includes Lightning & Fire (Balanced), Maulers (Run-Heavy, strong defense), and Pharaohs (Pass-Heavy, weak defense) team decks.
