Every.

Single.

Time.

I remember that, and now I know why. Macc must have picked the players for the game.😎

When I die, I too will challenge death to a game of electric football in order to have a second chance.

Prez isn't going to be happy about this one.  Sitting on the bench?!

 

I wondered how long it would take for Jamal to appear in this thread.

It was 100% my goal to think of a way to mention him to get someone to make this comment.  My initial thought was to play off "some of the players went around in circles" but I couldn't come up with anything.

Somewhere in my attic is the Super Bowl III edition electric football which I bought off of eBay back in 2000 when it first launched.

Actually, the defense only has 10 men on the field.  Maybe Jamal missed his assignment.

I know how much you despise that era of Jets Football, those terrible old uniforms,  the fans of that era and stadium, and their blue collar pursuits.  If you want, I can take that horrible, degenerate old relic off your hands. For free!

Bro don’t even get me started. I’d play on that buzzing piece of metal for hours.

Table Hockey?

 

Is that air hockey or bubble?  

 

I had a Super Chexx bubble hockey table in the 90's.

USA vs Soviets.  

Freaking awesome and still regret letting it go.

Completing passes with that little felt football was almost impossible . I always ran Matt Snell up the middle  .

I loved those.  Mine was fancier.  It played the national anthem, a digital timer/scoreboard, and had crowd noises.

Very similar to this, but an older model:

Now that was a good game.

Never got into the electric football game.   The players were too hard to control.   Used to love the electronic games though like Coleco.   I also had this one game.  Battery operated but wasn't really electronic.   Had like 4 dials and buttons you'd push for offensive and defensive plays.   Was pretty cool as the result of the play was dependent on the offensive/defensive combinations you'd put in.   Played that think for hours at a time.  Did a search online but couldn't find a picture of it.

I also remember by older cousin had a strat o matic strategy game which was really cool.   Had player cards for each team and played with dice.   I think the play result was based on the combination of the player cards and the dice roll.   Very realistic.   Loved this game....he was older and never played it anymore....Begged him to give it to me but was not to be lol
