Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

I think you can use the image of a Subbuteo player without license...it's just needed when you use the Subbuteo name.

Re: No blocking flicks

I think it comes back to something we've discussed before .. replicating football as opposed to just being good at flicking bits of plastic about .. I know that you can get away with non-blocking if you have two players who want to replicate football rather than just play a table top game that invo...

Re: No blocking flicks

" Many people still play Subbuteo in their homes...but when it comes to anything outside of that, the world of Subbuteo becomes a confusing mess."


Nail on the head Ian ..spot on.
It's a shame mate...unfortunately, I think things have gone so far now, it would be hard to change.

Re: No blocking flicks

I can't disagree with any of the above comments and ideally it would be best to play to the strict rules from the start. But Subbuteo is a game and its very easy to turn somebody off at an early stage. I agree mate...In my experience I've seen people wanting to play Subbuteo again, they've seen the...

Re: No blocking flicks

When we first stated playing at school nobody used blocking flicks. Its not a bad idea for the absolute novice who has never played, just for their initial few games until they get used to flicking. I've just introduced somebody to the game and it does take a while to master flicking properly, havi...

Re: No blocking flicks

I'll say this about non blocking and it is absolutely true ... not saying this to sound like a clever dick but last time I played someone who wouldn't allow blocking I beat him 8-2 ... he asked to play again straight away ... I won 7-1 :wink: ... that was playing Subbuteo with the cellys and I didn...

Re: No blocking flicks

Blocking flicks are part and parcel of the game. But I think the fact that you can flick a blocking figure as many times as you like is not right. This should also be limited to 3 flicks. What do others think about that one? Depends on who you are trying to replicate...sounds a bit like Lee Tomlin ...

Re: Think Subbuteos dear to collect?

Blimey...very calculated Mark.

I find the joy is in the hunting these days. Wish I had the room to display my collection. One day...

Re: Think Subbuteos dear to collect?

Blimey...it's a minefield out there Mark...just like Subbuteo and most other collectibles now.

A good reminder to everyone when collecting, to do your research first, and get knowledge before purchasing anything expensive.

Re: No blocking flicks

Surely you play to the rules of the chosen game...be it table soccer or Subbuteo rules?

What's the point of having rules, and then taking out parts that don't suit individuals? It makes no sense...

Re: Think Subbuteos dear to collect?

Funnily I came across this one whilst hunting for Subbuteo. A Spanish run of 300. Nice looking car.

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

They had red shorts and socks in 1962 just before the ohw release Mark...but it was with a plain white shirt. I think this is how SSG made the mistake. I think they got promoted that year too...probably why SSG added it.
