Table football is a physical simulation of association football, involving many of the same rules. The game requires deftness and skill in flicking the playing figures (which stand on weighted bases) across the table-top pitch towards the ball. Usually, two 15-minute halves are played. Subtle nuances differ from association football. However, these modifications have only been implemented to improve play.
Did somebody say, Subbuteo?
Well, in 1946 Peter Adolph filed an outline patent application for his game, which he chose to call Hobby. However, the patent office refused it as it was descriptive. Adolph was an ornithologist, so he decided to call the game Subbuteo from the neo-Latin scientific name Falco subbuteo (a bird of prey commonly known as the Eurasian hobby).
This design is based on the 1974 FIFA World Cup. All groups and teams have been represented, including Australia - the nation's first appearance at the Finals. It is the perfect gift for a table football aficionado.
