See-Action Football

Alright, I am going to try a new format. It might change over time so here goes...


What's the ad for?
See-Action Football board game
Year
1974
Spotted in
Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane # 136
The scoop
This was the first edition of See-Action football released. A later version was endorsed by you know who. You can't fault the company for having an original idea. It's pretty cool sounding actually. From www.boardgamegeek.com...

"Strategy combines with visual gimmicky in this title. Each player (offensive and defensive) secretly chooses a slide depicting their play choice, and one player sets the randomizing knob on the game's slide projector. They then view the two overlaid slides which produce an image of the play in progress, moving them through until a yardage/penalty result shows up at the bottom of the screen. Standard scoring rules for American football apply." 


The version shown in the ad was not licensed by the NFL and therefore did not use real NFL teams, just the cities. What do you do for New England then? Well, you call it Boston.
