    Love this game. Played the prototype a couple of times and had a lot of fun! It’s very tactical – you’ve got to plan a few moves ahead to beat your opponent.

    If football is your thing…if you love football manager…if you can defend while keeping an eye on attack…then you will love this game!!!!! We had a blast playing this for a few hours. I lost 3-1 and that’s not good. But next time it will be different!

    In a world of computer generated football games, Counter Attack is a breath of fresh air. A board game that let’s you pit your tactics against an opponent in real time. Win or lose I keep going back to try and perfect my system. This is a game for all football fans of all ages. A truly enjoyable experience.

    Played the prototype and can’t wait to play the real thing. It balances football realism with fun gameplay. Played it against my 9 year old who picked it up quickly. The good news is I won 2-0! Scored one from a corner kick and another with a swift counter attack. My boy came close but found my goalkeeper in good form! The dice rolls add some chance to the game – and a lot of exitement! I’ve played a few football games int he past including Subbuteo – and this is unique. Defeinitely something I’ll be playing against friends, and my son wants revenge!!

    It’s like Football Manager against a mate. A really good way to pass the evening! I love picking the squad at the start and then trying to work out how to beat my pal. You’ve got to decide how to attack the opposition and how to defend against them at the same time. I managed to isolate his weak fullback a few times before he got wise to it and changed his lineup. In the end I won 3-1 but it was a close thing. Really recommend this game!
