1st & Goal® Digital Football Game

Getting our backers in the Kickstarter community involved in the creative process that'll extend and enhance their 1st & Goal play experience is a win-win. - Frank DiLorenzo, R&R Games, Inc.

R&R Games, Inc. has launched a Kickstarter campaign to take their best-selling football board game 1st & Goal® from tabletop to tablet with a digital version of the game that will connect board game enthusiasts and sports fans worldwide for a robust online play experience.

The Kickstarter campaign, which began on March 14th and will run through April 25th, aims to raise $25,000 to fund development of the multi-platform 1st & Goal Digital game, and build an online community where players can compete in season and bracket playoff matches and join online tournaments.

“1st & Goal has been a huge hit with gamers and football fans around the world, and it has always been our goal to connect everyone with an online version of the game,” said Frank DiLorenzo, President of R&R Games. “Getting our backers in the Kickstarter community involved in the creative process that'll extend and enhance their play experience is a win-win."

1st & Goal Digital will be playable in single- or multi-player mode across all devices (iOS, Android, PC, Mac), and will remain true to the core rules and game play of the physical board game, which pits two football teams in a classic gridiron match. Players will create and customize their own teams by choosing the hometown, name, logo and colors, then go head to head calling plays and driving down the field to victory.

All backers will have access to 1st & Goal Digital Developer Forums, where contributors can provide creative input and vote in the direction developers take as they create the game. Other reward levels include a copy of the finished digital version, the 1st & Goal board game, and more.
