Hand-Off lets you take control of the action – bust out a big run, throw a game-breaking long bomb, make the big open-field tackle, or pick off the pass and take it the other way for a touchdown. The game will also help fans of all ages familiarize themselves with the decision-making, game complexities and language of college football.

The Buzz on Hand-Off:

“What we have here is a fantastic football card game that really does feel exciting, nail-biting, and exasperating. All the emotions I get when I am watching a game on the television.”
– Father Geek (@TheFatherGeek)

“It provides an excellent football feel and a good level of strategy, and it’s easy to see it appealing to both football fans who are just discovering hobby games and seasoned gamers who are interested in football.”
– Andrew Bucholtz (Yahoo! Sports, board game reviewer @BoardandGame)

“fast-paced and intuitive… delivers a fun and competitive experience.”
– Casual Game Insider

“Frankly, I was surprised at how much fun the game was, and how much it felt like watching a football game. There was momentum when you saw that you had a chance to combo some good cards into a long drive. There was drama as teams got into the red zone or a penalty potentially wiped out a big play. Field position — just like in real football — was crucially important, and you have to manage your time outs to give yourself a chance to get those good cards you need in the red zone. Kudos to the designers who must be big football fans, because this really plays like a football game simulator.”
– Board Game Gumbo (@BoardGameGumbo)

“The game is well structured, simple to learn, fun to play… it will come to life… plenty of “a-ha” moments along the way. Great fun.”
– Matthew Looby (BoardGameGeek.com user)
