Phil and I would like to thank Ed Meek for his work on this set. Player
movement within the league was fairly standard, making this year book a
nightmare to compile. To compound matters is that most of the online
sources for the league are grossly inaccurate. Ed's work in reviewing box
scores and compiling data was tireless. Without his help, neither Phil nor
I would have been able to properly recreate the season. This is by far the
most comprehensive Momentum Football year book to date.
Re-live the fun and excitement of the 1974 WFL Season with Momentum Football.
The 1974 WFL Year Book contains every team printed in full color, standings,
full results and a complete schedule.
Momentum Football is truly unique in that it allows you to quickly play a
full game in 15-20 minutes while yielding not only team stats, but also
individual player stats. I know of no other game that accomplishes this.
With Momentum Football you'll be able to track the following team and
Passing Attempts, Passing Completions, Total Passing yardage, Interceptions,
Fumbles Lost, Sacks, Rushing Attempts, Rushing Yardage, and all scoring.
Momentum Football uses a drive-by-drive approach to resolve games. But, don’t
let the simplicity fool you. Over 254 variables are used to create each team’s
chart making them highly accurate for both team performance and individual
player performance. And best of all, we’ve designed the game so that there is
little to no set-up time involved. As you become comfortable with the rules,
you’ll be able to grab two team sheets, a score sheet and four dice and begin
play immediately. There aren’t extensive pre-game calculations to slow you down.
As I mentioned above, games are resolved drive-by-drive, rather than
play-by-play. But, again, don’t let that fool you into thinking that individual
contributions aren’t important. You’ll quickly see the impact of great rushers,
passers and receivers on offense and pass rushers, cover men and big hitters on
defense. So, while the game is resolved by drives, individual player
contributions are the difference between winning and losing.
Don’t fret; special teams, penalties, turnovers, home field advantage, and a
team’s momentum are all captured within the game. You’ll be amazed as you watch
everything unfold on your tabletop just as it does in real life.
As the name of the game implies, capturing the momentum as it swings from one
team to the other is a big part of the game. Our system is unique in that it
doesn’t overly dominate the game mechanics nor is it over stated. However, just
as in real life, a team’s momentum can mean all of the difference between
winning and losing.
As a final note, since Momentum Football shares the drive-by-drive format with
another of our games, Game Winning Drive Football, many may make the assumption
that this is a sequel to that game. Truthfully, that’s not the case. We actually
began work on this game prior to Game Winning Drive. The idea for Game Winning
Drive actually came about as we were working on this game and having difficulty
capturing individual players within the game’s mechanics. We knew we had a great
team-based concept and that became Game Winning Drive.
So, those expecting Game Winning Drive with player stats will find that this is
a completely different experience. We think that Momentum Football is the most
unique game you’ll find in the marketplace today, and hope that you agree.
