THE HISTORY / MAKING OF END ZONE PARLAY 

End Zone Parlay has been years in the making so it's great to finally be able to make it available to fans and supporters through Kickstarter.  This game came about when I realized that I needed to find a way to combine two of the greatest games together in a way that made them better than they are apart.  So I combined the thrill of victory and competitiveness of football with the excitement and variety of playing card games and ended up with a new game that will keep you coming back for more..... and hence...End Zone Parlay was made.

 CONTENTS OF THE END ZONE PARLAY GAME

 One of the reason I am very proud of this game is that there are actually many more games available to play in this box than just End Zone Parlay.  And that was very important for me to provide to people that purchase my games.  I want to make sure that people find great value in the money they spend on my games which is why you will read later about all of the other games included in this box.  Here are the contents of what's included in the game box:

  • 1 Instruction Booklet
  • 1 Game Board
  • 170 Piece of Play Money (50 1$ bills, 50 $5 bills & 70 $10 bills)
  • 2 Decks of Unique 6 Suited Playing Cards (Later you will read about why having these 6 suited decks of cards gives you so many more NEW games to play)
  • 4 Colored Player Tokens
  • 1 Six-Suited Poker Hand Ranking Chart
  • 1 Football Play Chart

SO WHAT MAKES A 6-SUITED DECK DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DECKS OF CARDS?

 Just like any ordinary deck of cards has Clubs, Hearts, Spade and Diamonds.... this deck also has blue stars and moons.  The deck contains all the normal denominations of a deck of cards including 2-10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace giving you a total of 78 playing cards.  This deck of cards also includes 2 Jokers cards as well.  This 6-suited deck of cards is one of the great reasons why End Zone Parlay is a game you must add to your collection.  Not only will the 6-suited deck of cards make End Zone Parlay a fun experience, it will also increase the level of excitement and challenge you have in any card game you like to play.  For this reason alone, owning a copy of End Zone Parlay gives you 2 full 6-suited decks of cards that you can use to play any number of card games you enjoy such as, Hearts, Euchre and Cribbage...... and a brand new style of Poker called 6-Shooter Poker that you and your friends/family are going to love playing.

HOW DO YOU PLAY END ZONE PARLAY? 

By knowing the following 5 steps, you can quickly learn to play End Zone Parlay

1. Divide the number of people playing the game into any number of teams from 1-4, place the corresponding number of play pieces on the start space of the game board and determine the turn order for each team.

2. Quickly set up the game by placing one deck of the 6-suited cards face down on the game board and then give each player the same amount of money.

3. Based on the play that happens in the football game you are watching, you will either move your player piece on the game board, pay money into the pot or collect a playing card from the top of the deck based on what's indicated in the play chart for what just happened in the game you are watching.

4. Continue having each team in order follow the instructions on the play chart for each corresponding play until the pre-determined end of the board game.

5. At the end of the board game, who ever has the best 6-suited poker hand wins the pot in the middle of the game board.  

 SO WHAT EXACTLY WILL A PERSON/TEAM WILL DO ON THEIR TURN?

For each player or team that is represented by a player token on the board, you will do the following items on every turn.  

1. Watch the next football play that happens on TV.  When the play is over, look at the play chart included in the game and find the play that's highest on the chart that corresponds best with the play you saw on TV.

2. Once you have located that play on the play chart, you will do ALL of the following actions if instructed to do so:

a. Move the player piece the number of spaces indicated on the game board if told to move your token.  Note:  You will only move the token one time regardless the number of people represented by the player token.  If your token moves into the End Zone, imediately return your player piece to the Start Space and collect/draw 1 player card for each person represented by that player token.

        b. Each player represented by that player token will pay the amount listed into the pot if instructed to pay into the pool for that play.

        c. Each player represented by that player token will collect/draw a card or give a card to another player as indicated on the play chart. 

HOW CAN YOU PLAY THE GAME WITH MORE THAN 10 PLAYERS? 

On the box it says the game is made for 2-10 players.  But there are options for you to play with more than 10 players.  The first option would be to combine multiple game pieces together which provides you with the ability to really play with an unlimited number of players.  The second option you can do to play with more than 10 players would be to have everone on the same 'team' play as a group and only pay into the pot or collect a card once per turn regardless of the number of people on that team.

 HOW LONG DOES A GAME TAKE TO PLAY?

One of the great features of End Zone Parlay is that you get to decide how long the game is played for.  For example, if you want to play a longer game, you might play a game that uses ever play of an entire football game that you watch.  Or, if you want a shorter game, you could simply use only the plays in one quarter.  This can sometimes be a great option to do as you can really play 4 games of End Zone Parley for 1 game of football you watch.  One other option would be to play for a particular amount of time such as 1 hour.  That way you know exactly when the game is done.

 HOW DO I WIN THE GAME?

 At the end of the game, each player makes the best 6-suited poker hand using the playing cards they have collected during the game.  If you have more than 6 playing cards, you must only use the 6 cards that make the best 6-suited poker hand.  If you have less than 6 playing cards, you can still win if the 6-suited poker hand that your cards make is better than any other players poker hand.  For example, if you only have THREE cards (the 2 of hearts, 2 of spades and 2 of moons), you still have a three-of-a-kind on the poker chart.

 HOW DO YOU PLAY 6-SHOOTER POKER?

If you are someone that enjoys playing poker, you are going to love playing 6-shooter poker.  6-shooter poker is like any other poker game in which each person gets a certain number of cards, there are various rounds of betting, and at the end of the game, whomever is left in the game wins the pot if they have the best poker hand.  

Where 6-shooter poker differs from the other poker games you are use to playing can be summed up for 2 different reasons.

1.  MORE POKER HAND COMBINATIONS:  6-shooter poker has 15 different types of poker hands vs a standard poker game has only 10.  That's 50% more possible ways to win every hand.  By adding in these new poker hand combinations, the mystery of what winning hand a person has is much more challenging and fun.  

2.  MORE PLAYERS CAN PLAY IN A GAME:  Because a 6-suited poker deck comes with 50% more cards than a standard deck, you can play 6-shooter poker with 50% more players as well.  

 WHAT OTHER CARD GAMES CAN YOU PLAY WITH THE 6-SUITED DECK OF CARDS

 Here is just a small sample of the different games you can play with the 6-suited deck of cards.  

  • Bridge
  • Cribbage
  • Solitaire
  • Hearts
  • Euchre
  • Rummy
  • Spades

Now you can pretty much play any card game you play today with more people, new levels of excitement and additional twists because you now have a deck of cards with 2 additional suits.  Try playing some of your favorite card games with this 6-suited deck of cards and tell me how it goes as I would love to hear about the different card games people are playing with the 6-suited deck of cards.

DID YOU KNOW THIS IS A GREAT GAME TO PLAY WITH YOUR FAMILY TOO…. GREAT FOR LEARNING ABOUT FOOTBALL 

How many times have you tried to sit down to watch a game of football on the TV only to feel disrupted by your kids that they either can't sit still during the game or they are distracted by wanting to do something else because 'they are bored'?  It happens to me too...well at least it used to.  One of the added benefits to End Zone Parlay that I discovered after trying the game out at home was that I soon realized that this was a great way for the family to enjoy the football game too.  So not only was I able to watch the football game, but my kids now sit with me to watch the game and without them even knowing it, they are also learning about the game of football because I have them look for the plays on the game play chart so we know how to take our turn.  I even have my youngest daughter practice counting out the play money as she puts it in the pot.

THANK YOU

I would like to end with a small but sincere Thank You from me to you for taking the time to learn more about End Zone Parlay and hopefully contributing to my Kiskstarter goal.  My parting words to you are "Go after your dreams, your passions and the things that make you happy!"  Thank you for helping me make my dreams a reality and maybe someday our paths will cross where I can do the same for you.

Kindest Regards,

Joel Peterson
