Breakaway Football

Card-driven American football coaching strategy game




Second Edition: Now Includes Accordion Board Upgrade & Updated Defense Solo Sheets!

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.

Product includes downloadable solo AI for Offense and Defense for each team! (updated October 2022)

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.

The simplicity of the game engine - The “Game Day Deck” - captures all the probability of tackle 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 it is superior strategy that 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) - 1 Black Wink (Hard Count) - Pharaohs (2012 New Orleans Saints) - 1 Black Wink (Defensive Breakaway Tracker)

Includes Lightning & Fire (Balanced), Maulers (Run-Heavy, strong defense), and Pharaohs (Pass-Heavy, weak defense) team decks, plus 4 blue tokens and 4 orange tokens used in solo play.
