Gametime Decision

CSE Games Hits the Market with Portable Digital Scoreboard
by LicensingOutlook.com

Fabio Del Rio has always been a sports fan, not to mention an athlete. At [Brock University], Del Rio was a southpaw hurler on the school’s 1998 club, which won the Canadian national championship. He also spent three years as an editor for a sports collectible magazine and worked for an NHL trading card company. Given his background, it wasn’t quite a stretch when Del Rio and his brother decided to formulate CSE Games.

“We came up with the idea for our first product in 2006,” says Del Rio. “We called it Card Football. It was a football board game that incorporated the classic elements of playing cards.”

Card Football was very well received. It was named a Top 10 Card Game of 2006 as well as a Top 10 Football Game of All-Time by About.com. “That very same year we launched a hockey version called NHL Ice Breaker,” says Del Rio. “It was named one of the top 10 board games of 2006 by TheDiceTower.com.”

The latest offering from CSE, however, is all about keeping score in games. Last year, the company introduced the Gametime Scoreboard, a portable digital scoreboard and time-keeping device with a powerful dual-speaker audio system, with built in hockey sound effects. “The special sound effects bring the feel of the stadium or arena home.,” says Del Rio.

Card Football: Top 10 Football Board Game of All-Time

February 7, 2010

By Erik Arneson (About.com – Board Games)

Football (American football, not the sport also known as soccer) is my favorite sport. A lot of football-themed games have been published over the years, and here are my picks for the best of them…

#7. Card Football

For 2 players, ages 10 and up. Designer not credited, published by CSE Games.

A standard deck of cards and the game of Poker are the backbone of this clever game. Players begin with a five-card hand, playing one or more cards simultaneously to determine the outcome of each play. The highest Poker hand played wins each hand, then each player replenishes to five cards. Hand management becomes key, as players must decide when to play their best cards and when to hold back. A similar system is used in NHL Ice Breaker, also published by CSE Games…

About.com – 2008 World Boardgaming Championships

August 12, 2008

Here’s a snip of Erik Arneson’s trip to the 2008 World Boardgaming Championships.

The 2008 World Boardgaming Championships concluded yesterday, ending a weeklong event attended by about 1,500 gamers and featuring more than 100 tournaments. I’ve never been a big tournament player, and this year I only entered one: Football Strategy, a game most recently published in 1980 by Avalon Hill. In Football Strategy, the player on defense selects his formation (one of 10 possibilities) using a deck of cards, and then the offensive player announces his play selection (one of 20). The defender reveals his card and the players consult a chart to see what the outcome is. I played four games, finishing with a 2-2 record. All four games were dramatic, determined by a touchdown or less (20-14, 17-23, 13-8, 10-17). I’d rather play Pizza Box Football or Card Football, but I’m glad I had the chance to try Football Strategy…
