Tabletop Statis-Pro Football Game™ Frequently Asked Questions

How is Tabletop Football different than Statis-Pro Football?

The basic TTF Rules of Play are based on the last official Statis-Pro Football rules, and the game is played the same way. In fact, Statis-Pro player cards can be used with Tabletop Football, and new TTF player cards can be used with original Statis-Pro Football rules. TTF provides important game updates, including revised penalty, timing, kickoff, try, and overtime rules. In addition, new Tabletop Action Cards (TAC) and advanced rules of play add exciting formation rules, plays, and strategies, which allow coaches to implement modern offensive and defensive schemes. The TAC and advanced rules are designed to take advantage of numerous new player ratings without changing the way the game is played. The Tabletop Football Game Rules of Play can be viewed here.
