Take on a friend across the table to discover which of you is the greatest football manager. In Counter Attack you and your opponent play all of the moves on the pitch: pass, run, tackle, dribble, shoot and more! Draft a squad of players – each of whom is unique – and then try to make the most of them over the 90-minute match.

What I love about Counter Attack is that you become a manager in the truest sense. If your draw a weak squad, it’s up to you how you make the most of it. This of course will make you decide what tactics you need to apply. Whether to pack your defense and try to score on the break, or to attempt to go nose to nose and hope that your star player performs better than your opponents. I also love the fact that one can play with their favourite teams in their colours. A brilliant tactical game.

Cannot praise enough this game, which has given me countless hours of fun, excitement, glory and despair! The online community is fantastic and the ability to play international tournaments is a tremendous added value. From the kitchen table to a virtual Maracanã, Counter Attack is there for intense enjoyment!

This game is the perfect hybrid between football manager and fifa but with the personal touch of being able to compete face to face with your friends. Perfect to have with a beer on a weekend afternoon!

I bought it a few months ago, and it’s a very pleasant game to play with friends. It’s packed with action, and it’s very tactical.
You can stick to your tactic, try a new one… all in the midst of any game.

Best football game out there, that good it got me off my PlayStation 5. Totally addictive. You plan every move over the 90 minute match and you actually celebrate when you score you get that wrapped up in it.
I have recommended the game to my mates and we are going to set up a local league.

Fifa and football manager turned into a board game. What more could you want!!
The quality of the product is amazing
Production values are phenomenal.
You can tell it’s been a Labour of love for the designers and it shows in the gameplay
If you love football you have to give it a play

A fantastic board game. Easy to play but with the right opponent can be tricky to master. A must-have for any football fan or for fans of strategy games
A great game, that really does a fantastic job of bringing the feeling of football to the tabletop!

The best football tabletop simulator. The game has a real football feeling and it’s pure fun.
I’ve been looking for a decent football board game for years and now I’ve found it. This is the closest you’ll get to the feel of football and the production quality is excellent. I really wasn’t expecting much when I bought it as all the other football board games I own are a little light and in no way realistic but honestly this is excellent. You really need to give it a try. Also what I like is the fact that you can buy other team colours, this for me is brilliant, and I got the same feeling Subbuteo gave me in the late 70’s. I honestly just cant get enough. All I need now is a stadium to go round the pitch, floodlights and some crowd sounds and I will be back to being a kid again.
