I want a football game now that retirement is coming at the end of the week. I want individual stats. I will play solitaire. I don't need a lot of different play calls. I like to have it play in an hour or less and would like a lot of variety of teams and seasons from which to choose. Any opinions about whether FAF might be that game? I would accept other suggestions as well.

I play both Fast Action Football and Gridiron Wars and I enjoy both of them. If I had to pick one, I would choose Gridiron Wars using the Fast Action System. I play the basic version, which for offense means the only play calls are "run" or "pass". But the solitaire system provides both the offense and defense play call (or just one of those, if you want to do some of your own play calling). Also, with the college all-time great sets, there are different solitaire play calling charts designed to reflect the propensity of the offense to either run or pass the ball. I use these charts for the pro games I play, as well.

With GIW I believe you get the largest variety of seasons and other sets available compared to any other game on the market, including all of the Downey games. No other set offers 1940s and 1950s all-time great college teams. Almost every pro season is available as well. And, because the game involves team sheets and not individual cards, it is very easy and inexpensive to purchase the pdf version of any set.

Once you get the hang of the system, you can easily play a game in 1 hour. The flow is very smooth with the FACs.

So, to answer your question, yes, FAF could be that game for you. It is fast-playing and there are many seasons available. However, I would choose Gridiron Wars over FAF if I had to make a choice of just one, for the reasons stated above. GIW is a little more involved than FAF, but not so much more as to affect smooth and fast game play.
