The number selected is fed into an electronic control console, which includes circuitry to signal an electronic playback unit in which the previously performed and recorded plays have been stored to re-run the particular play corresponding to the number selected through a pick-up circuit connected to the cathode ray tube or television screen. Plays of a variety of games, including football, baseball, soccer, hockey, basketball, tennis and the like may be recorded to play any of such games in accordance with this invention.
