I've played a lot of hockey on tabletops.  I was wondering since Hockey seems to have come in "late" behind football and baseball games. How many Hockey games have there been with player ratings through the years?? was Negamco the 1st? Can we list all the Hockey we all know of and maybe the year of release. I think Strat was 77-78 maybe and APBA 91-92 Face Off (not sure) I have a 77-78 but think there was an earlier one.

Anyone help with a list?? Maybe even some descriptions?? I saw an ad for a Game called GOAL! Hockey in an Old Hockey Digest maybe '78...TRK never saw that one...Gamecraft Had a game.

I can't be positive but i'd say Negamco was the first, i really don't remember any others back in the early- mid sixties. Fuzzy522

-The first Face-Off season was 1973-74.
-PTG 1968-69
-APBA 1992-93
-The Gamecraft game was called Power Play. I have the 1975-76 season.
-Rod Gilbert's Violent World of Pro Hockey had 1969-70 preseason rosters.
-Statis-Pro 1973-74
-I'm not sure what the first season for the World's Greatest Hockey Game was but I have the 1980-81 edition. I'm pretty sure it wasn't the first.

I think you're right saying Negamco was the first. I believe the first season was 1958-59.
