Recipient of:
The Toy Man® eChoice™ Award

Third and Long has taken an interesting approach to recreate the action of a pro football game in playing cards. Two coaches take turns on offense and defense, calling plays and executing runs. Touchdowns, field goals, fumbles, interceptions, penalties, and big plays are all part of the exciting action. Join the fun as the teams of the Professional Football League compete for the Championship Trophy!

Each game results in real football game-like scores, and uses nothing but cards (no extra components to keep track of field position or time on the clock). Interceptions, fumbles, big plays, injuries, field goals, touchdowns, safeties, extra points... its all in there!

The Toy Man® eChoice™ Award

If y'all are looking to get some serious fist action and "other" recreational play, then The Thirsty Cactus, (Cowskull Gulch’s only saloon,) is the place to be! Knock Down, Drag Out lets you join the hectic melee of a Wild West bar fight at The Thirsty Cactus. The rules are brutally simple and the action is fast-paced! Punch, kick, and club your opponents-- be the last patron standing to win!

Each player draws three cards from the deck to form a starting hand. These cards describe various attacks (e.g. Punch, Kick, Uppercut), actions (e.g. Duck, Play Possum), or items (Firewater Bottle, Broken Chair Leg). As the game progresses, players may opt to spend their turn drawing more cards. The goal of the game is to be the last character standing in the saloon. Ready to kick some butt and be the last character standing?

Recipient of:
The Toy Man® eChoice™ Award

CampAntics™ is a board game about summer camp adventures, mischief, activities, with a large amount of focus on social interaction. If you’re curious about summer camps, or have already been to one, this is a game you need to have!

CampAntics™ is primarily for children from 7 to 14 years of age. Each trip around the board is one, very realistic day at camp. Instead of the adults, the Campers decide how many days to play, and enjoy a social experience like no other. During a camper’s stay at CampAntics™, points are won and lost with the ups and downs of daily life at this really great summer camp. The winner is the camper with the most points at the end of the game.

About Our Evaluation Report Summaries

With the fast paced change in the industry and buying habits today, we have chosen to introduce a new feature for our New Inductees. Due to the ratio of product passing our evaluation in comparison with the large volume of products being submitted each month, new post-induction process feature is needed.

If a product has been inducted, yet the product evaluation summary has not yet been posted, a company now has three options to consider;
  1. Do nothing but relish in the fact of their product(s) having passed our strict evaluation standards.
  2. Activate a license immediately for unlimited use of our Seal of Approval and any of our exclusive awards to which they are entitled.
    The licensing period will not begin officially until the actual product evaluation summary has been posted. Product evaluation summary is published within a maximum of 30 business days or sooner.

    Example: Company A's product is inducted on January 11, yet the product evaluation summary for it is not posted until February 1. Although the company activated their license on January 11, the one year licensing period paid for does not begin until February 1. All time between the Induction Date and the actual Posting Date is free of charge.

  3. Activate license same date as posting of product evaluation summary.
  4. If a product title or certificate number has a green check mark, (ie; An image of a green checkmark for products with an active Toy Man Seal of Approval license.), next to it, this signifies that the product has an active Toy Man Seal of Approval license and product evaluation summary for reading.
