3 headers, 2 screamers and a penalty

What happens when you bring together 5 Counter Attack newbies, 1 experienced pro, the 2 inventors of the game and 3 pitches in one Edinburgh pub? It rains goals!

We hosted a Counter Attack evening last night in Scotland’s capital city, and it was a lot of fun! After a 30-minute learning curve, the six players got stuck into the game and began to execute a great variety of moves. Back-post headers were tucked away, long-range shots were pushed over the bar, yellow cards were handed out and – shock horror! – someone spilled their pint on the pitch.

Here are some photos of the night:

A few conclusions from me about the evening:

  • Counter Attack is a fun, sociable experience! Most of us hadn’t met before yet we had a great night
  • It takes about 30 minutes to start to feel confident about the rules
  • There is a depth to the game that left everyone wanting to come back for more
  • Sometimes the dice just doesn’t roll for you (especially for Adam)

We have resolved to come back together and maybe even start a league. If you live in or near Edinburgh and you fancy being a part of this, give us a shout! (Just beware if you’re up against David (@AETShirts) because he slaughtered everyone)

There are only 3 days left of the Kickstarter campaign, so time is running out…
