    This game was so amazing on the beginning, but now with the help of the community, this game is a must have for the lover of great football!

  2. Tom Lemmens

    If you like football, strategy and board games, this is the game you have to have. It grabs you after you play it for the first time and it doesn’t let go anymore. You decide every move on the field and the strategy behind it. So it’s totally up to you how you try to defeat your opponent. Every game is different because of the draft of the players before you start the match. Definitely a must have for football fans!

  3. Matt

    Brilliant brilliant brilliant, especially with the new rule updates. A game that makes you want to keep coming back. Incorporates most elements of the real thing and the variety of players allows for numerous tactics.

    Random drawing of players means it’s anybody’s game!

    I’m not usually a huge fan of board games but Counter Attack is different – quite simply the best football game I’ve played. For me, it beats Subbuteo as it’s more tactical and it beats computer games as it’s more sociable. Brilliant!

    Ordered this on a whim and it arrived a couple of days later. Obviously only a novice atm but the level of depth achieved is already astounding. Can’t recommend this any more highly.

    Loving this game. As soon as I saw an advertisement of counter attack I thought “this looks really cool!”. So I bought and everybody who tries this game thinks the same – it is an awesome game!
    I miss a lot of shots though, so perhaps that can also contribute to the satisfaction of the people who play against me.

    Can’t say enough about how great this game is- I’m quite rubbish at FIFA but find this more my wheelhouse. The drafting of player cards really makes Counter Attack enjoyable from the start- draw a harsh ref or a subpar keeper and you can start thinking strategy right off the top. Strong back 3 with several defensive subs at the ready to provide support? Strong front 3 and pray you can attack your way to a win? It’s got everything you can ask of a football game and Colin and crew really thought it through to make for a realistic experience. The tutorial videos are quite helpful as well- I’d recommend the 45 minute play through to get an idea of how each aspect works. Bonus is the video showing how to grid your game board- a must in my household when my four legged feline friend decides to help out with her own strategic moves mid game.

    I grew up playing Subbuteo and Counter Attack shares some similarities with it! Counter Attack is tactical, enjoyable, easy to understand and challenging. I truly hope that this game gains more standing within the football community and that, eventually, more leagues and tournements are set up to take part in. I can’t recommend this game enough!

    Brilliant game. Used to have poker nights with friends but now we meet up and play counter attack and even started a little league. Once you grasp the rules, which doesn’t take long (1 friendly game), you will never play another board game again.
