I’ve used the APBA Football Master game to replay several seasons. The Master game provides the “ebb and flow” of an actual contest and allows the “coach” the opportunity to deploy multiple personnel packages to mirror today’s game or the single platoon system of yesteryear. On numerous occasions, I’ve matched team records and have come extremely close to replicating team and individual statistics.
My purpose for creating this blog is to present my current and previous replays, offer “method of play” alternatives, share innovations, provide tools for evaluating individual cards, post links and informational tips to assist with preparing for and conducting season replays.
Arian Foster gained 201 yards on 18 attempts to average a whopping 11.2 yards per carry and scored 3 touchdowns.
Tony Romo completed 22 out of 25 attempts and tossed 4 touchdowns to earn a quarterback rating of 151.4.
I’m unaware of what the NFL record for most first downs in a game is, however, during yesterday’s “Saints – Vikings” matchup (game 216) I witnessed a personal best. Drew Brees and company racked up 43 first downs for a total of 651 net yards of offense on 82 plays from scrimmage. Incredible offensive performance!!!
Julio Jones averaged 28.2 yards per reception for 141 yards and hauled in 4 touchdown passes.
Ray Rice has been recognized as the top AFC performer for the second straight week. Being a dual threat, he rushed for 100-yards on 24 carries and caught 5 passes for 100-yards and 1 touchdown.
My dear friend, Mark DerGarabedian, is at it again. He was kind enough to share his latest creation. He has used Phil Molloy’s “Dice Range Calculator” and created allocation ratings for receivers and defenders based off their actual statistics. He also included a “Rushing Attempt” breakout by percentage for each team. In addition, he listed the starting offensive and defensive platoons and there point ratings. The artwork and workmanship is tremendous!!! After reviewing both documents it made me want to replay the season.

Mr. Doug Reese was nice enough to give me permission to post his latest “APBA Football Play Calling” innovation. His system is well thought out, provides that “Face-to-Face” feel for solitaire players and prevents gaming the system. It’s easy to implement, offers flexibility (i.e., either the system or coach calls the plays) without drastically increasing the time to complete a game. In addition, he addresses alternatives for “Timing & Scoring” and an “Audible” system. Great job Doug!
For any questions regarding his creation, Doug’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
