Hand-Off: The Card Football Board Game

NEWS: Hand-Off review by Casual Game Insider magazine

LSU-HandOff-box-comp-smallHand-Off combines the strategy and decision making of playing cards with the drama and tension of college football. The game can be played by one to four players and takes about 45 minutes to play four quarters. Hand-Off is the update to CSE Games’ original critically-acclaimed Card Football game which debuted in 2006.

Hand-Off lets you take control of the action – bust out a big run, throw a game-breaking long bomb, make the big open-field tackle, or pick off the pass and take it the other way for a touchdown. The game will also help fans of all ages familiarize themselves with the decision-making, complexities and language of college football.

Bring the spirit of Saturdays home with Hand-Off. School colors adorn virtually every game element of the game – from the playing cards to the game board. In addition, you can play as one of the all-time teams and look for “signature play” Team Cards that can give you the advantage over your competition.

Hand-Off is the game for the college football fan and card player in your life.
