Preliminary Notes

Just met in passing Randy Rose, the guy who invented Big Sunday. For those who don't know, it's a board game that teaches the strategy of American Football (if you've ever wondered what is going on as you watch the game, this may be your best place to start). It covers the running game, passing game, penalties, the two minute warning, and even NFL coaches and players seem to recognize their game on the board.

If you know someone of junior high age, he's old enough to understand the game: though it takes one game with the instructions in your face, after that, you concentrate on strategy. Not so bad, eh?
