BoardGameGeek review praises Breakaway Football as “Hidden Gem”

A review on the popular board game site BoardGameGeek.com dished out some serious love for Breakaway Football this week. Regular contributor Clinton Paris lavished praise on our little endeavor, calling it a “Hidden Gem” and a “rousing success on many levels.” Not that we don’t agree with him, but it’s always nice to get some unsolicited cred from the board game community at large.
