Re: Speed of play

Interesting infos - if they are right. But thats not the real problem. Lets talk about serious about a more slower or quicker playing style. We know that rules are in some aspects very subjective, and going back to the beginnings of the game it´s interesting to see that there is a preference for a m...

Re: Speed of play

Charlie Darwin is more my thing TBH I guess I am just hoping to preserve a fine thread of Subbuteo DNA though the ages - whether or not anyone else cares is their business - I am enjoying myself: “It’s not meant to be played at 100 miles an hour. It’s a thinking game; a matter of angles – a lot lik...

Re: Speed of play

Of course - thinking about every flick needs time, the same as playing chess!
Do you use also a chess clock? If not, maybe a great gift for christmas, as a Subbuteo Christ!!

There are different types of original Advanced rules, and there was an evolution, and not every evolution is bad - especially under the proposition:...

Re: Speed of play

What do we want? Subbuteo as a realistic and vital replica of real football OR as a tactical game in which players play slower than Unreal United and the game is more chess on grass and you need a playing time of an hour? As I wrote before in another thread: the unbelievable attraction of Subbuteo i...

Re: Speed of play

Very good question, Mr. Chuckle. I can understand very well what you describe. Of course slowing down the game can be a very successfull tactical weapon. And so far as I know there is no rule about it or a time limit (but we can discuss if we should add to the rules - maybe it makes sense). BUT to p...
