Andy Laing, a twenty year veteran of the university leagues is launching an American football game this week on Kickstarter.
Fourth Quarter Football is a board game with incredibly realistic miniatures that is designed to recreate the tactical side of football. It was designed by ex-UEA Pirates player, Andy Laing.
The game has been demoed across the UK this year, with many Britball players trying it out at different games expos. It launches on Kickstarter at 10AM on December 26th.
The game revolves around players taking the role of coaches, selecting plays from a hand of different plays they have been given and then executing those plays using the included miniatures. But as any Coach knows?
Fate can be cruel, plays don’t always go right, and all the time, the clock in the fourth quarter is running down.The game is designed to play as close as is possible to American Football, while also being a fun game, which plays in under an hour and a half. To make the game play clear, Fourth Quarter Miniatures has it’s own YouTube channel with game play videos.
The fantastically detailed miniatures that come with the game are supplied in two colours, one for offence and one for defence. This allows the game to be played without needing to paint the models. Of course, the option is there to paint the figures as your favourite team!
Want to recreate and replay the epic fourth quarter of the 2017 Britbowl between the Blitz and Phoenix?
Andrew has plans for the future of the game, including expanding the different players available and creating teams which play in different styles. For more information, you can follow the game on their Facebook page.
