Description Edit | History

Re-released in 1977 as "Talking ABC Monday Night Football".

Talking Football is one of those gimmicky games from the early 1970s that could go under a mechanic called "record-driven". The players use a set of 13 custom records to drive the action; 10 for offense/defense play selection, and 3 for special plays (penalties, field goals, etc.).

The offensive player secretly chooses a play disc and inserts it into the record player "sportcaster". The opposing player rotates the record in the player, looking at the back of the disc to select their defense. Once the defensive selection is in view from the defense's side, that player pushes down to start the recording. The "sportscaster" gives a yardage/penalty result for the play (the records were multi-groved and would play differently based on which 'defense' was chosen.
