I can't remember the name of this game but it was something like "Scrimmage". Each side had 11 small cones that represented the players, with the eligible receiver players with white dots on the top. The ball was a different colored cone that was placed on top of the ball carrier's cone. The board was a grid configuration with some of the lines missing to create "lanes" where a player could move farther than one box at a time. Each box was equal to 1 yard. The object was to gain more yards than your opponent, with each player getting one chance to possess the ball.

Any ideas what this was called? I can't find it on BGG.

Daniel, I'm 99 percent sure it was indeed called Scrimmage. I had that game as a kid, and I'm surprised I can't find it anywhere on BGG either. I search for it occasionally on eBay, but no luck so far.

Thanks for the reply. I'm pretty sure you're right about the name. I could kick myself for getting rid of the game way back when. Dang it!!

I'll keep searching too.

Nope, unfortunately! The one we're thinking of had no luck element at all, as I recall, a straight-up abstract. The "players" were identical cones, and the board was a giant green field bearing a white grid with lots of long "breakaway" lanes. Orange and blue cones as I recall. That single play could take almost a half hour.

Even as a kid I remember thinking, "Hmmm, this doesn't really work," but dang it, I need to verify that now...!
