Fourth Quarter Football 

The game of Gridiron Football in miniature.  Choose the plays, make the passes, and try to score, but remember: time is running out in the fourth quarter.
 
 
Fourth Quarter Football gives you the feel of Football, but in a game that can be played in under one and a half hours. There are no endless tables and charts, just heart pumping action focusing on the key skill players (although with the addition of Subs Pack One, the game can be played up to the full eleven a side). The game has a unique combination table top miniatures action with tactical deck building.

The figures

Fourth Quarter Football comes with a selection of superbly detailed 32mm scale resin figures. The base game has an offense and a defense in different coloured resin, so they can be played with no painting required. Or you can paint the figures in your own designs.

When ordering the extra team please note: this will come with player cards and a 20 card play deck (a selection from the base game). The players in the team will comprise the 13 from the base game plus the center figure.

When ordering individual players, please note:

  • The player will come with one player card.
  • A skill player from the offense will include between one a three play cards.
  • You may pledge for any player, but there are positional maximums in the game. No more than two of any skill position. No extra linemen. Only one Quarter back. On defense, no more than three of any positions.
  • When ordering the Substitutes pack one please note: The pack contains six figures, but for any of the pledges og £99 and over, it will contain a bonus six figures.

Stretch Goals

We made all of our original stretch goals, so we added more to the list!

Stretch goal figures unlocked so far:

 

So far the Tight End, Full Back, Alternative QB and Safety extra figures have been unlocked and added to the base game. These figures also include player cards and for the Tight End, new play cards specifically to get him into the action. 

There is now a center figure, as an alternative pose for a lineman,  included in each team. 

Game Play

Fourth Quarter Football is the closest you can come to playing Gridiron Football without donning shoulder pads. Players create playbook decks of play cards and select plays from those dealt to their hand. The play card chosen is then executed on the field, using a series of unique mechanics.

New: Substitutes Pack 1

Note: If you wish to play with the full eleven-a-side, this is possible by  adding on this substitute pack to your pledge.

This pack contains six figures to add new tactical options in Fourth Quarter Football (2 Tackles, 1 Running Back, Two Outside Linebackers and a Defensive Tackle).  Note: The running back and D Tackle figures are the same figures as in the base game.  The pack also contains rules for expanding Fourth Quarter Football  to eight, nine and eleven a side. Players cards and new play cards are also included.

 

Game Play in More Detail.

The Field of Play:   

.    

The blimp eye view of the FQF Stadium
The blimp eye view of the FQF Stadium

There are three types of play: pass, run and trick plays.  Players may mix as many pass and run plays in their deck as they like, but they may have only two trick plays. Their opponent is allowed to see all the cards in the playbook before the match starts, except for trick plays.  

Here is an example of a pass play (this is not the finalized design of the cards):

A simple slant play.
A simple slant play.

In this case, the card shows you the zone certain players must reach for the play to execute correctly. The zones match those on the field of play. Players receive a bonus to their catch attempt if they receive the ball in the required zone. If they attempt to improvise and go elsewhere, there is a negative modifier to any catch rolls.  

After the play has been executed. The coach must discard the play he called to a discard pile..The play on the 'audible' zone (if it was not a trick play) is placed in a separate discard pile. He then draws two cards from the playbook, to bring his total plays available back to three.
