Counter Attack

Pick a squad of players and sort them into a 1-11 based on each player’s unique abilities and your favoured formation. Study your opponent’s line-up to see if you can spot any weaknesses you might exploit. Then pass, dribble, tackle and shoot your way to glory!

Welcome to Counter Attack: the tabletop football strategy board game!


Counter Attack is a unique board game: it’s the only football board game that puts you in full charge of the action on the pitch. Every pass, every long ball, header, dribble, tackle, block, shot and save is decided by your actions.

  • Will you play a pressing game or drop deep?
  • Will you go with a 4-4-2 or play 3 up-front?
  • Will you play a short passing game or high balls to a big striker?

The possibilities in Counter Attack are endless – it’s the true football fans’ game.

Counter Attack is currently a work-in-progress. Sign up to our newsletter and follow us on Twitter to learn about when and how you can get your hands on a copy.

Play in the pub, play at home, play at school, play anywhere!
