My nephew (10) loves football, and I am thinking of getting him a football game. He likes boardgames, but he does not like anything deep. Pizza Box Football is probably too much for him. The game needs to probably be finished in 15 minutes or so...

Any ideas?

For super simple, quick and cheap, Sports Dice: Football. It's just the luck of what you roll - that's all there is to the game. No actual decisions, but it's football dice.

Off the top of my head:

1st & Goal
Battleball (Not truly football, but probably close enough that you nephew won't mind- plus he might really like the minis.)
Techno Bowl: Arcade Football Unplugged

Not really. I think I am going to get him the dice game. If he likes it, maybe I can then go further down into the rabbit hole...

Thanks a ton for the suggestions!!

I know I can't wait a few months, but I guess I'll have to. This game looks great.
