Do you have what is takes to beat “Team Purple”? Challenge the purple team to a mini game of Football made out of 100% construction paper, but beware the purple team will be watching your every move to build better and more powerful plays to win.
Note: Due to the new rule “no throwing paper” and the nature of the materials used in this game, there will be no passing plays involved.
How to create a play: Drag your paper players to the desired positions. Drag the paper arrows to change the direction they will run.
How to run a play: Hit the “Run Play” button to start the play. Your power player (QB) will follow the mouse during the execution of the play in real time.
How to win: Score more point by the end of the game by running the ball into the touchdown area without being tackled or going out of bounds. In the event of a tie, the win will go to the previous championship holder (“Team Purple”).
