GridZone is a fast-paced game of 7-on-7 football, based on a fictional sport in which field position translates to points. The fictional sport of gridball was conceived to support the game's true purpose of sustainable career leagues. The action is highlight-driven, and there are plenty of big plays with only seven men per side. Best of all, the game is complete with a section on how to create and manage your league season-after-season.

Now there are two versions of the game:

  • Turf War 2nd Edition – a refinement of the first commercial version. Better balanced and more streamlined. This version is based on player matchups to determine the outcome of a highlight. Players are rated and ranked by position.
  • Classic GridZone – a fully-realized version of the original free game (circa 2013).  Instead of key player match-ups, there is only one key player per play in Classic. That player's skill levels are used as a die modifier on the Action chart rolls. Player ranking is by unit, so specific position is less of an issue, and player's involvement is dictated by a 72-card mini-deck.

Both games bring a football experience that enables open-ended league play, season-after-season.

True-to-Life Players

At its core, GridZone is still gridiron-style football, minus the kickers and special teams. The same skills, running, blocking, passing, tackling, pass-rushing, and catching, apply. So it is fun to imagine what some of the great pro football players may have looked like as GridBallers.  Here are a few examples:
