"Flicker Football is the perfect game for the child inside us all. It's tabletop football gaming perfection worth showing off"
The song "Good Old Days" as you hear it in the video is a song written and performed by Michael Shynes. He is a Midwest born singer / songwriter who is as authentic and genuine of a person and musician as we have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. The first time we heard "Good Old Days" we knew we wanted that to be the theme song for what this game was all about. Listening to that song, and many others by him, we became instantly hooked and forever now will be fans. Even if you should decide not to back us on our game, please give his music a listen to. His vocal range, multi-musical styles and charismatic charm, we believe, will definitely get you just as hooked as we are as he continues on his musical journey. God Bless you Michael and thanks for making such great music so many of us can relate to.
With a game that looks as good as it plays, why not show it off. Whether playing this game with your friends while you're tailgating, hanging out at your favorite sports bar, taking part in a tournament, fundraiser or just chillin at home in your man cave...each field is a powerful, work-of-art that is a sight to behold and beckons to all to not only..."Play Me" but "Display Me" as well! Your friends and family will be awestruck when they catch sight of your very own Flicker Football game displayed on your coffee table, bar or even hanging on your wall like a fine piece of art. Please know all fields can easily be retro-fit by anyone who wishes to display it on their wall for all to see and admire. Shown to the left is "In The Trenches" (ivory)...it is durable and lightweight and has been easily retro-fit to hang just about anywhere.
With portability in mind, each game has been carefully crafted to be both durable and lightweight. Weighing in at less than 4lbs, each game playing field is smooth, waterproofand uv protected, allowing for not only unfettered game play but easy cleaning and long lasting beauty. Attached to the bottom of each Flicker Football game is a shelled, support arm that runs parallel to the short-bank side rails, dead center of the game and below the midsection of each game field. This brace not only helps to keep the games unique shape for years to come, but also provides a balanced-pillar-of-support for the game to be played on.
Each playing field has been perfectly elevated, allowing for goal line edges. In a game that requires each player to spin a perfectly padded football across the field and then have it balance precariously over an end zone line without falling off the edge in order to score a touchdown, we gave this game the edge it so needed for tabletop football gaming perfection. Nothing hangs better than a When We Played - Flicker Football. Shown to the left is the end zone view of the edge and short-bank side rails.
Experience a game, made in the heartland of America, where each field is a genuine step-back-in-time, when football was at it's genesis. With When We Played's - Flicker Football, gone are the days of folding up a piece of notebook paper and flicking it back and forth across the cafeteria, restaurant or kitchen table (please note, the game can still be played with a folded-up piece of paper on our tables if you so choose). Stitched, smooth, soft-padded flicker footballs now spin seemingly effortlessly over an elevated field designed for gliding and flicking perfection.
With the official Kickstarter launch of When We Played - Flicker Football, we are introducing 6 different "Official Flicker Football League" vintage collectible fields to choose from. Each field has been specifically selected that best reflects the beginning era of the greatest sport ever played, football. Each one of the 6 fields will provide hours of entertainment and beauty in your home, apartment, frat house, school or business. Please note the "Young Guns" Official Flicker Football League Field in ivory we will be retiring at the end of our successful kickstarter campaign.2019 FFL FIELDS UP CLOSE

Ordering was simple, shipment was FAST, it even was delivered a day earlier than expected and in perfect condition, great price for the item... When We Played is a very original concept... can't wait to play with 4 people, but was entertaining for 2 too. Fun characters, great artwork, you can play it fast or slow, sober or sloshed, lot of laughs. ROCK ON!!!

Assemble your band, practice, hire a manager, roadies and take your band on the road. Start by playing local Dives and work you way up to play on the grand stage before anyone else does. Garage Band Cards allows you to experience all the ups and downs of a rock N roll band. If you ever wanted to be part of a band this game puts you in the middle of the experience.

Warning, the learning curve is a bit steeper than I anticipated. Read the rules, and remember there is quite a bit of strategy below the surface of the basics that drive the game. Give yourself plenty of room too, as you will need it if you do not have the game mat (I just bought one). Really hoping they add a country expansion pack.
Lastly, the CD was so cool, loved just about every song!
