Are you ready for some (Fantasy Fantasy) Football?
March 15, 2017
Sports meets sorcery in CSE Games’ newest tabletop game title – Fantasy Fantasy Football. You think regular fantasy football is exciting? Wait until you add bone-crushing Ogres, gruesome Gargoyles and special magical abilities. Fantasy Fantasy Football features a mix of cards and miniatures and is coming to Indiegogo.com on March 28th.
Fantasy Fantasy Football breaks down to: one part fantasy, one part fantasy football, one part football cards, and a pinch of parody.
In Fantasy Fantasy Football, players draft teams in order to compete in head-to-head weekly match-ups taking place over the course of a fantasy football season. Build your team from such mystical characters as Satyr Wizard quarterback Magic Pan, hard-driving Raptor running back Edge Falcon or blazing Phoenix wide receiver Francisco Treat. Each round players will engage in match-ups to earn victories, while managing their rosters, managing bye weeks and dealing with weather conditions in hopes of making the playoffs and winning the championship.
Developed by emerging game design talents Daryl Andrews and J. R. Honeycutt, with art by Rob Lundy, Fantasy Fantasy Football is a card-drafting, roster-building game designed for 2 to 6 players, ages 10+ and only takes 20 to 50 minutes to play.
“We are very excited to be working with Nate Murray and the Indiegogo team on this project,” says Fabio Del Rio of CSE Games. “Daryl and J. R. have designed an elegant, quick and engrossing game that we feel both fantasy and football fans will really enjoy.”
Fantasy Fantasy Football is the second title in CSE Games’ Fantasy Fantasy sports series. The first title – Fantasy Fantasy Baseball – is slated to hit stores later this week.
“The Fantasy Fantasy sports line is one of the projects I’m most excited about in gaming,” said Nate Murray, Manager of Gaming Outreach for Indiegogo. “I’m a huge fan of the designers, Daryl Andrews and J. R. Honeycutt, and the work they’re doing on this line is phenomenal. The added twists and turns they’ve added to a sports drafting game make the system sing. I can’t wait to see these games grow. Indiegogo is very excited to work with CSE Games to build their ever-expanding line with this campaign.”
The game designers are equally excited about Fantasy Fantasy Football.
“Fantasy Fantasy Football is a dream come true for me,” says co-designer J. R. Honeycutt. “As a kid, I spent countless hours drafting my favorite players in football history and thinking about how they would perform against each other. Now I can build a fantasy version of those teams and see for myself!”
Daryl Andrews says, “Fantasy Fantasy Football lets us build on a very exciting line of games. I’m really looking forward to seeing players’ reactions to the new ideas we have incorporated. We love the Fantasy Fantasy sports line, as J. R. and I are huge sports fans in addition to being game designers. These are our two favorite things colliding in the best way possible.”
