Get your mate – pick your players – play every move
Counter Attack is the 2-player football strategy game you can play at your kitchen table!
Inspired by the best elements of classic computer games like Kick Off 2, FIFA Soccer and Football Manager, Counter Attack puts you in charge of a team of players and then lets you make every single decision on the pitch. How will you line up? Where will you pass? Where will you run? Will you play high balls to a tall striker, or through balls for speedy wingers? Will you defence push up high, or will you sit deep and seek to frustrate your opponent?
There are an infinite number of possibilities with Counter Attack – no two games are ever the same!
It takes 30 minutes to learn how to play, but mastering the game is another story!
Every box of Counter Attack comes with 46 player cards – players who are ready and waiting to become your next superstar.
The individual player skills are crucial to both your strategy and your success in the game. You will have to decide how to best utilise the talent at your disposal. What’s more, you will have to keep an eye on your opponent’s danger players – will you man-mark an explosive winger? Who will keep an eye on the attacker with superior heading ability?
The more you play the game, the more you get to know how best to deploy each player.
EVERYTHING YOU’D EXPECT FROM FOOTBALL
Passing, dribbling, tackling, heading, cross balls, shots, saves, corners, free kicks, penalties, red cards, injuries…it’s all in Counter Attack!
UNIQUE PLAYER CARDS
Each copy of the game comes with 46 unique player cards. These players make your team. You will win or lose the game depending on how you deploy your squad.
Counter Attack is a free-form game: you have infinite plays you can make in any game. Just like real football, no two games are ever the same.
AN ELEMENT OF LUCK
Football isn’t all about strategy and skill – there’s an element of luck in there, too.
Even Leo Messi gets tackled sometimes…
Some moves require a roll of the dice to determine the outcome.
A cunning strategist with a poor squad can outwit a rudderless team of Galacticos. Utilise your players’ strengths and your opponent’s weaknesses to your advantage.
