  1975 GridIron Wars Year Book Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1975 National Football season for GridIron Wars.

Re-live the fun and excitement of the 1975 Professional Football Season with GridIron Wars!

The 1975 season was the 56th for the League.

The league made two significant changes to increase the appeal of the game:

The surviving clubs with the best regular season records were made the home teams for each playoff round. Previously, game sites rotated by division.

The league pioneered the use of equipping American football referees with wireless microphones to announce penalties and clarify complex and/or unusual rulings to both fans and the media.

Instead of a traditional Thanksgiving Day game hosted by Dallas, the league scheduled a Buffalo at St. Louis contest. This would be the first season since 1966 that the Dallas team did not play on that holiday.

The season ended with when the Pittsburgh Franchise defeated the Dallas team.

  1987-88 NHL Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1987-88 National Hockey League season for BigBep Hockey.

Re-live the fun and excitement of the 1987-88 National Hockey League season. The yearbook includes every NHL team and all skaters.

Play out the 1988 season with the best hockey game on the planet!

This yearbook utilizes the "Tough Guy" chart and ratings. This addresses players with high penalty minutes and also adds another layer of strategy for solitaire and head-to-head coaching.

This season may be best known for the infamous confrontation between Devils coach Jim Schoenfeld and referee Don Koharski after Game 3 of the conference Finals, when, during an argument in the tunnel after the game, Koharski tripped and fell, accusing Schoenfield of pushing him. Schoenfield famously responded, "You tripped and fell you fat pig!" Then, he yelled "Have another doughnut! Have another doughnut!" The incident was played repeatedly on ESPN and has become part of NHL lore.

Schonefeld was suspended by NHL president John Ziegler for game four, but the Devils received an injunction from a New Jersey court, allowing Schoenfeld to coach the fourth game. In protest, the officials scheduled to work that game in the Meadlowlands refused to take the ice, forcing the NHL to scramble for amateur officials to call the contest. The injunction was lifted and Schoenfeld served his suspension during game five in the Boston Garden.

The BigBep Printed Yearbooks come in two formats; a printed team sheet offering, and individual die-cut cards. Both offerings are in vivid, professionally printed, full-color.

  1970's College All-Time Greats Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of College Football's best teams of the 1970's for GridIron Wars Football.

Find out which college football team of the 70's was the greatest with this set for GridIron Wars!

As many are going to ask, let me state right from the start, the team ratings are designed with strength of schedule and normalization built in. This keeps every team on an even playing field, which I think is important for All-Time Great sets. Most importantly though, each team will still keep their "personalities" which I also feel is important. The bottom line is that all of the teams are on an equal playing field, but they will still perform as you remember them.

The College All-Time Greats set also adds new solitaire play calling charts to accurately reflect the different styles of play in the college game, as well as a new Kick-Off chart and Penalty chart.

The college All-Time Greats printed version is printed in color on card stock and can be found here:
http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_2_83

The E-Book version can be found here:
http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5_6_82

The 34 teams included in this set are:

1970 Nebraska
1970 Notre Dame
1970 Texas
1971 Alabama
1971 Nebraska
1971 Oklahoma
1972 Oklahoma
1972 USC

  1974 World Football League Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1974 World Football League season for GridIron Wars.

Relive the fun and excitement of the World Football League and their inaugural season.

Playing a 20-game regular season schedule in 1974 - six games longer than the NFL's then 14-game season - the WFL staged no exhibition games (although its teams did participate in preseason scrimmages). The season was to begin on Wednesday, July 10th and ended on Wednesday, November 13th. This was a 20-game season in 19 weeks --- a schedule accomplished by having double games (primarily Monday and Friday) on Labor Day weekend. But some complained that the schedule was poorly drafted. For one thing, although most teams played on Wednesday nights, with a national TV game slated for Thursday nights, the Hawaiians played their home games on Sunday afternoons (meaning that when the Hawaiians had back-to-back home games, they played on a Sunday night, followed by their next opponent playing a Wednesday night game on the mainland, and then that opponent flying out to Honolulu to play the well-rested Hawaiians four nights later). In addition, back-to-back meetings between two teams, a no-no in the NFL by that time, were common, with the earliest set of back-to-back games being as early as July 24th and 31st (the third and fourth weeks of the season).

In the first few weeks, the WFL looked to be a resounding success. Attendance outpaced the first week of the old American Football League of 1960, averaging just under 43,000 a game. The box office numbers proved to be the beginning of the WFL's undoing. In Jacksonville, the Sharks admitted that 44,000 tickets were giveaways. The Philadelphia Bell whose first two home games totaled 120,000 fans, told the press that over 100,000 had been sold for almost nothing. Presumably the giveaways were intended in part to pique the public's curiosity and interest, but the attempt was unsuccessful. Six games into the first season, WFL franchises were in serious trouble. The Detroit Wheels were looking to move to Charlotte, North Carolina and the Florida Blazers made overtures of bringing the first place club to Atlanta.

By September, the barely one-year old league had bottomed out when two franchises relocated. The New York Stars relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina as the Charlotte Hornets, and the Houston Texans, the first WFL team to relocate in mid-season, moved to Shreveport, Louisiana as the Shreveport Steamer. In October, the league pulled the plug on the Detroit Wheels and the Jacksonville Sharks after 14 games. The folding of the Jacksonville franchise meant that the Gator Bowl would not host World Bowl I.

Despite the disasters, many thought the WFL performed fairly well, though below NFL standards. Many games were tight, decided by seven points or less, and the Action Point, the one-point mandatory conversion run attempt rather than the standard "PAT" (Point After Touchdown), was favored among WFL coaches and critics. The league championship - the World Bowl, or World Bowl I - was staged in Birmingham between the hometown Birmingham Americans and Florida Blazers. The Action Point proved to be the equalizer as the Americans won the championship by a single point, 22-21. The day after the World Bowl, the champions' uniforms were confiscated by sheriff's deputies.

Can you lead Memphis to the title? How about Florida? Or will Birmingham take it all as they did in real life?

Order the year book today and find out!

The printed Year Book is printed in full color and includes complete standings, a full schedule (as played), the full schedule as intended by the league before the financial issues, pictures of the team's uniforms, helmets and logos. All team rating sheets are printed on card stock.

  2007 SPHL Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2006-07 SPHL for BigBep Hockey

Play out the 2007 season with the best hockey game on the planet!

The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) is a low-level professional ice hockey league with teams located in the southeastern United States.

The SPHL Rules & Regulations differ from the NHL and the previous seasons of SPHL play in the following areas:

* A team may dress sixteen regular players to a game. Two players dressed for the game will be goaltenders.
* No curvature of stick limitations as in the NHL, AHL, and ECHL.
* Shootouts are five players (as in the ECHL and AHL).
* All overtime periods in the regular season are between three skaters per team and the goaltender (3 on 3, compared to 4 on 4 in other leagues). Penalty rules differ during the overtime:
* During the first three minutes of overtime, in case of a penalty, the non-offending team is awarded one extra skater per penalty (up to five).
* In the final two minutes, any minor penalty results in an automatic penalty shot.
* No delay of game minor penalty if a skater intentionally shoots a puck into the stands. No line change by team clearing the puck.
* Goalies are permitted to play the puck anywhere on the ice surface.
* Adopted the NHL rule on icing no line change allowed by the team that ices the puck.
* Adopted the NHL rule regarding Hurry-up Face Off. A team is given 5 seconds from the time the referee drops his hand and blows the whistle to the time the puck is dropped.

The 2006-07 Year Book includes a tough guy chart, and tough guy ratings. This addresses players with high penalty minutes and also adds another layer of strategy for solitaire and had-to-head coaching.
