Why It's Significant (in 25 words or less):

Football Strategy, despite having no statistical element itself, led to the publication of many stat-based guess-and-counter-guess sports games.

More About Football Strategy:

The offensive player chooses a play from the cards in his hand, and the defensive player calls a play in the same way. The decisions are checked against a table of possible outcomes, and the result is carried out. Football Strategy was joined in the Avalon Hill line of games by two sister games, Baseball Strategy and Basketball Strategy.
