Re: need some help!!

"Zeugo's Frowned upon Ralph? When has that happened fella?" No idea , I know they don't like the new bases but one of the Italians told me they were all a no no ... doesn't bother me either way as I think they are horrible in any case - the painting is dreadful. I agree mate...don't like the figure...

Re: Which is the best of the new stuff

They were meant to be played with Adrian...and there are 1000's of common teams around. Ralphs offer is a good one.

Re: Which is the best of the new stuff

Very common HW teams on ebay can be picked up for a tenner. That's the closest and cheapest way of getting the classic HW experience. ;-)

Other than that, Topspin and Santiago.

Original pitches are cheap as chips as well.

Re: need some help!!

I was fortunate enough to have met members of the Parodi family at the International events, and more dedicated folk, you would be hard to find.
Such a shame...I've only spoken briefly via social media. Still passionate.

Re: need some help!!

Its a sign of desparation when they go after other folks players, a sure sign that they cannot attract Members of their own. The Zeugo story to me is the saddest one, The Parodi family where for decades the importer/Distributor of Subbuteo for that part of Europe, they kept sales very high from sta...

Re: need some help!!

It's sad reading that Paul...the guy who developed the FISTF rules and his new equipment, basically ruined Subbuteo as we know it. Like you say...more people play Subbuteo than FISTF, however certain FISTF players seem determined to 'force' others to convert to that game, citing that it's better and...

Re: need some help!!

Zeugo's Frowned upon Ralph? When has that happened fella? Regarding the OP question...and rules...it's not so much about 'Rues' with Oldsubbuteo. It's more an ethos and about a community of people who want to keep Subbuteo alive. The majority of people who play it, grew up playing with the original ...

Re: Botafogo Delacoste black players

yes I know ............ Delacoste could also repaint his own teams so we can see strange things too
Would they have painted over the boots Eric, which were originally brown?

Something doesn't sit right with me on this team...who knows.

Re: ‘NEW LUTON’...

I've never got my head around why SSG tried to replicate the collared shirt with a huge 'v' at the neck. And why they chose to do it on some teams and not others with collars. If you were a Kent Housewife trying to paint 100's of those Luton's with 'V' and stripes to side, every day, you would have ...

Re: Subbuteo "treasure trove found" in attic....

The 'Twenty is Plenty' scheme should be used for all visiting fans imo... http://www.fsf.org.uk/latest-news/category/twentys-plenty/ Totally agree - Reading have implemented this but none of the other clubs have bothered although some offer reciprocal arrangements. We did this with Ipswich for £25 ...
