Subbuteo is a physical simulation of association football, involving dexterity and skill in flicking the playing figures (which stand on weighted bases) across the table-top pitch towards the ball. Played by thousands of people in clubs and tournaments all over the world, Subbuteo is an exhilarating and exciting game, where mastery requires skill, concentration and determination.
Peter Adolph invented Subbuteo in 1947. The first Subbuteo sets, known as the Assembly Outfits, consisted of goals made of wire with paper nets, a cellulose acetate ball, cardboard playing figures in two basic kits (red shirts/white shorts and blue shirts/white shorts) and bases made from buttons weighted with lead washers.
What makes the game different from most other table-top sports games is the hundreds of team kits and accessories. While most games feature only two teams (usually "Red v Blue" or "Black v White"), Subbuteo has several hundred team designs - almost all representing real teams. For example, Real Madrid or Manchester United.
Australians have been playing Subbuteo for decades with clubs based in every major city. Aside from the challenge, the game is a great way to socialise with fellow football diehards.
