Breakaway Football

Breakaway Football game Board

Game Day Card

Breakaway Football is a 2-player, card-driven strategy game where you are the Head Coach! The board game gives you the chance to call all the Offensive and Defensive plays for your team. Using realistic football strategies, you can outwit your opponent and create exciting big plays called “Breakaways.” On Offense, breakaways can create huge gains. On Defense, breakaways create drive-killing sacks and turnovers.


Easy To Play

First, rather than focus on player skills, yardage charts, spinners and dice, Breakaway Football makes football simple. Play a card with a single-digit strength rating onto the board. Your opponent plays their card. A third “Game Day” card modifies the result. Simple addition and subtraction quickly yields the play result.
