I'm going to date myself here, but...
Anybody old enough to remember an old board game called CFL Armchair Quarterback? Released about 1985??
The board was the playing field, and you used two index cards and dice to call your plays.
It was quite fun. I played it all the time with some friends.
Point is, that'd make a pretty good, and cheap, pc game.
I'd play...heck I'd make it if I could.
Good times....good times...
