NFL Showdown was a Trading Card Game (also known as Collectible Card Game) from Wizard Coast to Coast and yea it was kind of a flop. I actually played the MLB equivalent but to be honest I got bored with it after the first couple of games. It also really doesn’t help that my little brother keeps winning…
Anyways I decided to pick up a bunch from a card machine as trade bait for football team collectors. I figure it is kind of oddball and I can’t imagine too many people buying them when they first came out.
They came in three packs/ lots and in the pack I thought would be a bunch of Jets, it was instead all of the same Curtis Martin card. So if there any Curtis Martin super collectors out there are 40+ Curtis Martin NFL Showdown cards that can be yours!!
Here are some of the other more interesting cards
Yep I pulled another but different Curtis Martin card.
As for the rules, you basically just roll a dice add to the stats and see what the outcome is. You can play cards to influence the die but yea it basically a game of chance. The football cards have bar codes on the side and I think this may be the game where you swipe it on a device and it does all the calculations for you. Again it sounds a lot more interesting than it really is.
So once again all the cards are for trade. They are kind of taking up space so if there are no interest in them (which wouldn’t be surprising) I may add them to a box of cards I am planning to donate.
