A metal footbal feild with plastic football players. When you turned it on, it vibrated to make the players move. When your player vibrated out of bounds, you started over.

This was the ultimate! One of my favorite birthday presents of all time. The only bummer was it was hard to actually make a complete pass. And it was time consuming to set up between plays.

My friend had one and we would play it alot. I always wanted one but never got one. Was going to buy one about 4 years ago at TOYS R US but didn't have the $60 needed to buy it. NOw THey don't carry it any more and I am once again wanting it after seeing a Bill Guyst skit on it 3 years ago. They actually have Play offs and A Super Bowl match for Electronic Football, Complete with Refes and yellow flags. Dedicated people who play for the Electronic Football Super Bowl Titlte. Funny

I used to laugh my @ss off when my brother and I would spend 2 minutes to set up a play, turn it on, then watch the linemen hook arms and do-si-do while the runner turned around and ran the wrong way. I'm laughing now just thinking about it.

I'll use this version as an example. The 1970 JC Penney toy catalog sold, by Gotham Electronics, the Super Dome electric football game (the name preceded the New Orleans Superdome by three years, as the Saints played at Tulane University's stadium). The game was NFL endorsed, and had the normal features like the rumble field and workable scoreboard. Price was $13.50, and two complete teams were included, with option to customize by ordering additional teams, according to which you rooted for. Coleco did the same with its Super Bowl and other electronic games. On the down side, these fell way short of a full simulation. No officials/penalties, and the players were hard to control. Some didn't even come with first down markers. Despite these flaws, the games were big sellers, until video games began cutting into that popularity. The most popular of the old electric games were the "Monday Night Football" ones starting in 1971.
