With the NFL Game Day game, learning about football just got easier.
NFL Game Day is one of those games I saw at the New York Toy Fair and knew I had to have. I admit, I don’t understand football, nor do my children. My husband, however, is a big fan. I know NFL Game Day, could be just the board games to teach us about football. I wasn’t wrong. From the moment it arrived my kids were eager to try and play. Initially, I thought the directions were overwhelming and it would be too hard for us all to comprehend. (There were offensive, defensive, and special team plays to learn about.) In the end, I was proven wrong when my husband and 8 year old sat down to play this weekend.
As they played I could hear lots of good learning moments and father-son bonding going on as my husband taught my son how to play. Clearly, my oldest loved playing the game because Sunday morning I came downstairs to find him teaching his younger brothers how to play NFL Game Day.

What we love about NFL Game Day
- This football board game teaches the rules of football, with players using cards and dice to move down a football field toward NFL team-branded end zones.
- The game is for 2-4 players so it encourages team play in larger families.
- There are magnetic end zone markers for every NFL team. You can pit the Philadelphia Eagles against the Dallas Cowboys as many times as you like.
- It made my oldest son eager to teach his younger brothers something and to play with them nicely.
