More than a game.
You sit across the table from your opponent, watching their tactical manoeuvres like a hawk. Your heart races as their defender moves in for a tackle against your winger. If you can just evade this then the cross is on. Trailing 2-1 in the last moments of the match, you need just one more attempt on goal…
This is football. Welcome to Counter Attack.
Games are injected with real drama and nothing beats a successful dice roll resulting in a goal-saving tackle or the ball nestling in the back of your opponents net!

MEET THE PLAYERS
Every player in Counter Attack is unique, just like in real life. As the manager, you need to decide where to play them on the pitch. Fast players with high dribbling can make super wingers, while tough tackling players with high heading are certain to feature in defence…but it’s up to you with Counter Attack: play them wherever suits your strategy.
But remember: having good players alone will not be enough: it’s the decisions YOU take over the course of a match that will put you in a winning position!
As you move around the pitch in Counter Attack looking for opportunities to pass and shoot, your opponent will be attempting to close down space and put in tackles.
Key moments in the game are decided by a combination of a dice roll and player attributes. In this example here, Ruiz has the ball and Iwu has come in for a tackle. Ruiz has a dribbling attribute of 5 and Iwu has a tackling attribute of 3.
Add a dice roll to each player’s score; whoever has the highest overall score wins the duel! In this case it’s Ruiz, so Ruiz can move around Iwu and take a step closer to goal…
