Geocache Description:


You of course, are looking for a football.

Atari Football was a 2-player 1978 arcade game developed and published by Atari. In this game, the sport of American football was emulated, with players represented by Xs and Os. The game was one of the most popular arcade games in its day. In 1979, Atari released a more challenging four-player version programmed by Dave Theurer, the creator of Missile Command and Tempest.

Although not the first trackball game, Atari Football was the game that is credited with popularizing the trackball. Considered physically exhausting to play, Atari Football involved spinning the trackball as fast as possible to win the game, often resulting in blisters.
