This game has a lot to offer. My nine year old son can play it just for the fun of rolling the dice, destroying the enemy, and moving the cool figures up and down the field. I can play it at as an interesting exercise in strategy that is influenced by luck. The rules ensure that the game isn't "dead"; you can "come from behind" to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, and even the weakest player on the field can surprise everyone and take out the most massive "heavy lineman" with a lucky roll. Excellent game, well done Hasbro!
