Re: Is Subbuteo REALLY Just a Toy, Or...

Don't think it was ever just a toy. Surely it's a game, and some games are sports. Yep, thats it! So today we have two parties of the game - the Vikings of Classic Subbuteo :viking: , playing old style, with a special spirit and a lot of sophisticated discussions :lol!: and a lot of beer :guiness: ...

Re: The Maidenhead Old Subbuteo Festival 21st/22nd March 201

Do you play ? The usual cost of entering a UK tournament is between £ 8 - £10. The question was asked ... it's been answered. Ralph what are the costs for these tournaments where they charge £8-£10? Swalec Stadium will cost £900 for the weekend How many players attend this tournament at Swalec? Wha...

Re: The Maidenhead Old Subbuteo Festival 21st/22nd March 201

thats not quite the case - not all the italians know each other nor do they all come from the same club. Yes, of course, I did not say anything else - what I said is: to prevent that (especially) Italian players FROM THE SAME CLUB will go in the same group should be the aim - and its quite easy to ...

Re: The Maidenhead Old Subbuteo Festival 21st/22nd March 201

Sorry, but I don´see the problems, Jon. There are just two things to look for: - English players and Italian players - And Italian players, maybe English players too, and their membership to a club. So if a player want to attend he should say if he´s member of a club, thats all, not complicated. At ...

Re: The Maidenhead Old Subbuteo Festival 21st/22nd March 201

Jon, I think its a good idea - especially for the Italian players - to guarentee them that players of the same club won´t play each other in the first group round. In 2014 we had this problem - its easy to prevent by a seeding list as in real football competitions (World Cup for example). Also it ma...

Re: 7th TSPA National Flats Tournament-26 Oct 2014 (Huntingd

Gents, here at the forum - You collect, collect and paint, and paint and build stadiums and whatever and talk and talk here BUT WHY DO YOU NOT WANT TO PLAY!?? Wish John al...

Re: Subbuteoworld

We should keep in mind that Pete&his Subbuteoworld is a professionell seller - so he has to take higher prices (but you don´t have to pay of course).
And there are also very interesting things, good value for price.

Re: Speed of play

I think that the whole rule discussion - full with emotions - makes no sense cos of different reasons: - In contrast to Italy the Subbuteo scene in England is a collection scene, also this forum. Not many tournaments, not many active players and so not many Subbuteonions who are really interested in...

Re: Speed of play

For me - everything has been said.
I will give other players the space for discuss ... what´s your opinion? (Keeping in mind that there are not a lot of Subbuteonians who are interested in rule questions).

Re: Speed of play

The discussion seems to be senseless cos you don´t want to see the point (and we don´t speak about FISTF!) and your answers were disappointing. The point is quite easy - you wrote: "By manipulating equipment and rules , you start an ‘arms race’ to get an advantage over your opponent. This changes th...
