Taking a page from Cyberball's "football but robots" playbook, Pigskin 621 A.D. is "football but actual Vikings and other medieval and sometimes fantasy characters, but also sort of rugby." Appearing with the tagline "Ancient Archrivals on a Rampage" (because the game's designers worked on both Arch Rivals and Rampage), Pigskin litters the field with hazards like pits, pools and logs, and encourages beating up the other team at every opportunity. Control can be difficult at times given that the game follows the ball (so your character is regularly offscreen and can be hard to find), but the game offers an amusing take on a familiar sport. The original cabinet featured light-up indicators of your team's current strategy, which are sadly non-functional in our version, but the same information appears on-screen.
