Mogul, you assume the role of both General Manager and
Coach for a professional football team of your choice.
You start at the Opening Weekend of the current season
with a current roster of about 65 players. Your roster
can hold a maximum of 80 players.
In your role as
Head Coach, you set the starting offensive and defensive
teams, and choose your kicker, punter, kick returner and
punt returner. You choose who stays on your roster and
who gets sent home without a paycheck. As General
Manager, you craft complex trades and sign multi-million
dollar players, competing with artificially intelligent
player agents and general managers. You also get to
control all the finances of your team, from setting the
price of a ticket or a beer to allocating funds to your
scouts and medical staff. Finally you can even control
the playcalling of each matchup week-to-week as you
steer your club to victory.
The goal of
Football Mogul is to have fun. Take control of your
favorite modern team, or replay any historical season.
Make trades. Design playbooks. Rewrite football history.
