Disadvantages: It was an extensive game
Subbuteo was a game many years ago I remember seeing and played all the time. The idea was you had this green like felt which was designed in the colour green to represent a football field.
Not only was felt green but the markings on the green felt in white were also the same as a football pitch as well.
In terms of what you had to do the idea was you had a team each with 11 players and you could position them in random places on your side of the field and you had a goalkeeper which had a handle so you make him produce saves when he needed to.
The range of teams was excellent you could pick many top team and international teams and then you had the players. The players were designed in a plastic but were placed by glue on round globe like stands.
You had to flick your player into a ball and try and score against the opposition. When I played the game we basically had rules that you would take three kicks of the ball and had to use a new player and that when the ball hit an opponent's player then you were basically giving them possession instead.
The game one of those which took 2 seconds to set up but took forever to play depending how long you wanted to play the game for.
You also could purchase extra items for the game such as stands for a crowd effect and you could also purchase the goals as well and various teams which were all over the place and in various shirts.
I think the game at the time was excellent for what it was but this was many years ago and since then and new games consoles such as Fifa games you cannot see this game hardly anywhere.
I saw it the other week in my attic and it was a surprise and brought back many memories because it offered so much. I would play in little tournaments and all the pieces you would need were available in all sorts of toy shops.
The prices I cannot remember for the game or the teams but overall it offered a great deal of patience and plenty of game play at the same time.
If there was one think I might change it was the rules. Everyone had different ideas on what the rules were and I am not even sure what the correct version truly was. In my view you can play this game with the real rules or the fake ones either way you want it to be fun.
This is a classic game and one of those which people will remember if they are a certain age.
Summary: A decent game at the time of release
