While I’m familiar with the concept of vibrating football games, I have to admit they’re nothing more than a pop-culture footnote to me. I understand football (not soccer) the game, but I have no idea how the randomly moving and spinning figurines on the game board correlate to running plays or any kind of strategy at all. In fact I’m pretty sure there’s an old vibrating football game kicking around my parent’s home, but it was easily trumped by the C64 when I was a kid.
But with Father’s Day coming up, I’m sure this would make for a nice nostalgia trip for most dads past the age of 40. And who knows, those updated graphics and official NFL branding might just convince me to give it a second chance. If I could find it for a bit cheaper than $79.50 that is.
