I decided to put together a version and just finished tonight. There was a error on my part that damaged the surface on the quad-fold board at the 50 that I hid in the pictures....

All of the components I created (missing target marker ... d'oh!):


Closeup of down markers, bench, and Pit Bulls (custom standees, not cubes):


Closeup of Bighorns, bench, and footballs:


Closeup of Timer/Score card and markers:


Edge shot of custom bench:


Closeup of footballs:


This took a few days since I had to work in time to create the cards (they're FFG Yellow Sleeve sized), standees, cut the benches, recut the benches, craft the footballs, paint the markers and footballs. cut the board and glue all 8 sheets down.... and loved every minute of it.

No I just need to find time to play!

The footballs were crafted using magic.

The materials needed are:
1) Super Sculpey (or any hardening clay)
2) 1/2" Copper pipe
3) 1" x 8" dowel for rolling clay
4) 2 pieces of 1/4" plywood
5) Oven (for hardening clay)
6) Brown & White paint
7) Large and fine paintbrush
8) Patience (I lack this so I did the best I could)
9) Matte sealer spray
Optional: surface to bake clay on, I have a 12" square tile that I use.

Method:
1) Soften a bunch of clay an place on surface
2) Place the plywood on either side to control depth of rolling
3) Roll clay with the rolling pin using the plywood as a guide.
4) Use the pipe to cut overlapping circles ... mine ended up being 3/4" x 1/4" ... as many as you like.
5) Bake clay per instructions then let cool.
6) base coat brown using large brush then seal (and wait).
7) using detail brush paint markings then seal (and wait).

DONE! ... it's that easy! whistle

It's not cost effective but if someone really wants some and Brent can't get football meeples I can create them for people. Not sure what the shipping would be but I'd be willing to make some if there is enough interest.

Hey Rob!

I finally made mine as well...
Took a different route (an easier one as I'm not really an expert in Handicraft), but for a first time PnP ever i'm quite happy with the result (at least I can play a few games while waiting for the real thing):

There you go:

WiP:


Chicago Monsters, ready to rumble:


San Francisco Lumberjacks for the Win!


The end result: Start of a Carolina Pandas vs San Francisco Lumberjacks game

@Rob did you just go in an manually make your standees by changing all the jersey numbers to the correct ones? Or is there currently a file out in the wild with all the images needed for the players?

Go check in the files sections.
Pitbull and longhorns are the samples for the pixel blocks. With those files, you can make the standees for those teams...

@Frank: Your image links were broken for me... cry

@Scott: I created my own image files using the sample star players (from all teams) to get the numbers correct. I also sliced out the skin tones of several players to get a mix for ones I don't already have. The field is a custom piece I created as well as the card layouts since mine are smaller cards.

@Frank: Your images are in WebP format and Safari doesn't render them so I looked in Chrome and it was fine.

I like the meeples and admire the ingenuity in your design! Simple and clean (I wish I had handfuls of meeples lying around). I like the single page field as well. What size is it? I had to splice 8 pages together and they came out messy... looking for a less expensive option for a single full size page.

Anything to get the game played is welcome in my opinion!

Thanks for the info, good to know... I'll try and upload jpg versions of the files instead...

For the board, I was lucky enough to have acess to a A3 printer the paper sheet is 11.7 inches × 16.5 inches

@Rob would you be willing to share the images you used for your board? And score cards?

Only if Brent give permission can I do the scorecard (since I used his MFL logo), I can provide the field, digits for scorecard, and target markers.

I can put up the scorecard without the logo as well. You'll need 1/4" dowels or beads for markers.

This is a *GIANT* file (111 MB!) since I created it at 300dpi ... I will look at making it smaller so I can upload it here. I will probably have to drop the resolution to 75dpi.

Scott,
I have submitted my field and scoreboard (minus the logos) They'll be in the files section when they get approved.
