About Us:

Hey there- I'm Andrew- the creator of the Footy Feud! and Football Feud! brands of games! 

The Footy Feud! brand is a suite of Officially licensed AFL games, loved by all ages for being fun and easy to learn, while Football Feud!, launched in 2024, adapts the same gameplay structure to American football.

My journey started way back in 2014;after testing some early prototypes with family and friends we thought we were on a winner!  It wasn't until we then shared an early design with kids I was coaching at our local cricket club that I realised the game had potential; all the under 12s and under 14 players wanted to play because the concept was novel, while parents interestingly watched on as their kids learnt key numeracy skills without even knowing it.

Fast forward 10 years and we are an officially licensed AFL game and officially endorsed by the Maths Associations of Victoria and WA and have ranging in some of Australia's biggest retailers! 

I am also a big fan of the NFL and it's been great to adapt Footy Feud's gameplay to American Football. Like Footy Feud, the game has also received great feedback, and it was particularly great to showcase the game with great success at GAMA, one of the USA's biggest board game trade shows, in March 2024.   

The journey has been incredibly rewarding and we look forward to our games being hits in both family and adult game nights across both Australia and North America!

What is Footy Feud!?
Footy Feud! is an Australian football themed-card game, and is an Official AFL licensed product (since 2017).

What is the objective of the game?

Are there any specific skills you need to play the game?
No- although it would be preferrable for the scorer to have good counting skills to 100 and a good knowledge of their 6 times tables (6 times tables are provided in the pack).

How do I score?
Please refer to the 'How to Score' video on our 'How to Play' page and/or download our scoresheet from the main menu

What do I need to score to typically win the game?
Like any real Australian football game, the scores really vary between games.  However, typically scoring over 85 will see you win Footy Feud!, while over 75 will typically win Footy Feud! Finals

Do I need to know about Australian football to play the game?
No, not at all! Footy Feud! has tested very well with people of all ages who even have no interest in Australian football.

If you are familiar with the Australian football scoring method it may make the game initially easier to grasp. 

What ages is Footy Feud! suitable for?
Footy Feud! is most suitable for all ages, 7 and up, while Footy Feud! Finals is 10+.  Both games are heaps of fun for kids and adults!

Is Footy Feud! a game of luck or skill?
We have deliberately designed Footy Feud! to be easy to play, however the game features multiple strategic choices that differentiates good players from the best. Further, Footy Feud! Finals is slightly more advanced, which requires a bit more skill.
