Well having this type of a product as a kid I was very excited when my boys wanted it for Christmas. They were very excited when opening it on Christmas day, as it looked very slick and promising, but were soon disappointed as the Quarterbacks were defective. The plastic thinned out too much around the knees causing the pieces to break and be unusable. I sent email to the company to see if they could just send me those peices. They never even replied! So I returned the game to the store never actually using it.
First of all, there are no productive instructions on how to use the product. There is a detailed explanation, however, on the rules of the game of football; but nothing that would be helpful to tell you how to navigate the players. The players are so small, and the footbal is a tiny piece of foam that is smaller than my pinky nail. The players basically just go wherever and there is no possible way to play a game. This was a game from Santa, and it was a BIG, BIG disappointment. It's being returned. I am shocked that this is a $50 item.
First of all I went shopping around for this NFL vibrating football and seen it everywhere for 80.00. I reviewed this item on all websites it was offered. I checked with Walmart just in case it was there, not expecting to find it and there it was for 40.00. 1/2 the price. I thought, maybe it doesn't come with something. but it came with everything. The men were smaller than I thought but the game plays really good. You can hear the vibrating sound down the hallway, so keep your cellphones on the ringer or you will be getting up looking for that cellphone. My 14 year old had wanted this for 2 years. He got it and loves it. He laughs because he sets the men to go where they go and then amazingly, just like the NFL, you never know who comes out of where to get that tackle or touchdown. Its fun. I watch him play and im glad i purchased it. ALSO, the shipping came so fast. I expected it to come within 7 days, or around the 7th day and it was here within 3 days of payment. I seen review from other vibrating machines that the vibration wasn't strong enough, the players go wherever..but you can set these guys where you want them to go. If you expected the men to go EXACTLY were you wanted the game wouldn't be so fun. Even in real play you have to change the plan. It's fun, and your children would enjoy it. Two Thumbs up for me!!
The excalibur football game is an exciting games for those young boys who are die-hard footbal fans. However, the games pieces should be handle with care for they break easily, which is a major draw back. But over all the game was nice.
This was a very disappointing choice. Too much work to put together and ran off batteries. Played about 20 minutes and put bavk in box. Would not recommend to anyone
We bought this product after my son begged me for it! He played it for 2 hours and then was bored with it! Not worth your money at all! Lets just say the next day it was retrned!
every thing is good except for the men are made of cheap,thin plastic
some men where broke before i opened the box
within a week.. my son players were handicapped
i had to glue half the team -had to tell my son the players were on injured reserved
I bought this product for my 7 year old son who is football obsessed. It was a Christmas gift. Within minutes of opening it, the frame was broken. Most of the guys were already broken off their stands when we opened it and the rest pretty much broke off when he tried to play with it.
First of all, this product is NOT worth the price. I am glad that I bought it at 50% off because I would be a lot more ticked if I had paid full price.
Secondly, the age limit for this product should be increased. It said 8 years old, however, the way young boys can treat toys sometimes, this product is WAY too fragile for an 8 year old.
Overall, I would suggest not wasting your money on this product and I regret that I did.
Inspite of the reviews, my 10 yr old son wanted to get this for xmas. So, we purchased it and after getting it out of the box we were very very disapointed. As a few others stated, the pieces are so small and very very cheap. The football is a foam piece of nothing that if you blink you will lose it. There is NO directions on how to set up. LOTS and LOTS of rules on the game of football itself as if someone would play this not knowing the rules of football...yeah right.
BIGGEST waste of money and is now put back in the box and going back for a refund. I'm a HUGE reveiwer and will only buy stuff if rated high. I knew buying this based on reviews that it may be junk and boy were they right. DON'T waste your money thinking it's just maybe us that doesn't know what we are talking about. I love Wal-Mart and it's not there fault that this was very poorly made. One purchase not happy about!
my 7 year old son and his dad simply love this game...his dad had an electric one that plugged into the wall about 30 years ago and he still has the football players!! They play this game EVERYDAY.
this game is reminiscent of plug in vibrating
football with the added feature of being able
to use batteries. i was dissapointed in the
chintzy stand alone cardboard scoreboard.
the children (8 & 12) had a hard time figuring
how to set up the plastic stands that each player rides on. i have a hard time giving this game
2 out of 5 stars but did just because in was all
there and vibrated.
Great toy the whole family enjoys. My grandson uses it daily.
The kids enjoy the game for hours and hours and never tire of it.
My two sons, 12 & 7, and my nephews, 4, 13, 14 & 15 played together for over an hour with this game. That is worth the money! A great classic. The only thing I can complain about is that the quarterbacks broke quick. But you can play without them.
After hearing countless men review the best gift at Xmas as a kid, the vibrating football game seemed to always be at the top of the list. This was a huge hit with my husband, since it was one of his all-time favorites, and much to our surprise, our boys (26 & 15) also thought it was the coolest game ever!
The game pieces were very well packaged and easy to assemble. I would recommend this to anyone!
My husband had a vibrating football game in the 1970's. My son saw this one advertised at another department store for over $100, so we felt it was a good deal at the Wal-Mart price. My husband was afraid it wouldn't work well since it's battery operated rather than electric, but he said it works just like his old one. That is to say that it's often frustrating, but our son thinks it's great. And it looks a lot better than the old ones. It was a Christmas hit!
I bought this for my husband. He ha a blast playingit. It was a game that he used to play when he was a boy. It works great, but the pieces break easily. You cannot get replacement pieces for the company who makes the product no longer does that. My husband and boys have a great time playing the game.
This was an awesome purchase which took me back to my childhood days of playing on the aluminum predecessor of this maginificent game.
We purchased this for our 8 yr. old Grandson who is a die hard football fan and he has had fun playing with it however, after day one of use we were having to "glue" (4) of the players back onto their base. I don't think this game will last for "many" years to come and for the price paid - expected the players to be assembled/made more durable.
My son is less than enthused with this toy. I bought it as him main toy for Christmas and he has only played with it once although he's a football fanatic at age 9. It vibrates loudly which is distracting. I think that compared to its cost is does not deliver much punch.
