SECOND SEASON Pro Football Game 20th Anniversary Edition
2019 marks 20 years for PLAAY Games, and it's only fitting that we kick off the celebration with a special version of the game that started it all: presenting the 20th Anniversary Edition of SECOND SEASON Pro Football Game! Pre-order starting January 28th!
Watch our LIVE SS20 un-boxing stream on the PLAAY Games YouTube Channel, Thursday January 25th, 8PM EST, 6PM MST.
The inner-workings of this special edition of SECOND SEASON are unchanged from the base version available right now—we've simply upgraded components. SS20 is completely compatible with existing seasons and home-brews. You'll be able to play the teams and seasons you already have (and teams and seasons for years to come), generating your game results from these exciting new, premium components...
- Jumbo-Sized, Tabbed Game Book: Coil-bound and printed on 67 lb 8.5" by 11" Vellum Bristol stock, this bigger, better game book is hefty, sturdy and easy-to-use. Two rows of tabs will help get you quickly to the section you're headed for. There are tabs for all six offensive play selections, kicking, punting, returns and fumbles/hard hits.
- Deluxe two-piece game box: This box will look great on your game shelf! Outside, you'll see a fresh take on the SECOND SEASON brand, with a combination of fonts and graphics that are both contemporary in appearance while also paying homage to the classic "Monday Night Football" look. Slip off the sleeve and inside is a sturdy, expansive, gloss-finished corrugated container in which to store your game stuff. Nice!
- New football field design: We've reconfigured the football field to make it easier to track field position, using pawns instead of flat discs. Similar in process to some of the home-brewed 100-space fields, this field segments the spaces in ten-yard clusters. The result is a compact field that doesn't require a lot of table space, yet can be easily adjusted for any gain or loss of yardage.
- Fresh graphics, bold contemporary look and feel: All of the game's standard components—football field game board, speed boards, instant results deck—have been re-cast to match the theme established in the cover art and game box.
- Upgraded six-sided and twenty-sided dice: SS20's game dice have rounded edges and a rich, pearlized finish to add some extra elegance to your experience!
- All-Decade Great Teams: Included with your copy of the game is a set of All-Decade teams featuring the greatest players from the 1950s through the 2000s! These new upgraded team cards are printed in themed colors, and are included as an acknowledgement of pro football's glorious past!
- Certificate of authenticity: Each copy of the game will be numbered and will include a certificate of authenticity. (Hopefully this doesn't sound too presumptuous—we think it'll make the game even more special!)
- (Please note that the photos above are of component prototypes, actual final game components may vary slightly in color from what is pictured.)
HOW TO ORDER YOUR COPY: We'll have a special one-week pre-order window starting January 28th, the week before pro football’s February 3rd "Big Game." The 20th Anniversary Edition of SECOND SEASON will be offered for $99, postage paid and will include everything listed above. We'll deliver the games on or before training camps open (in July) for the 2019 pro football season. Order your copy here, starting January 28!
