“The VCR Quarterback Game.” VCR Enterprises. $49.95. Unlike other football board games, this one comes with a cassette containing nearly 400 plays from the NFL Films library. Moving toward a touchdown on a board laid out like a football field, a player picks a card to find out how to proceed. Some cards say turn on the VCR, with the next move based on what happens in that filmed play--a clever, colorful touch. One criticism: Though the game’s fun, it’s too offense-oriented. The inclusion of some intriguing defensive strategy would have made it much more challenging. Information: (212) 645-2733.
