    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.

  4. Lee O’Connor

    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!

    Fantastic!!! First game can be slow while learning the rules but once you get going its alot of fun. Must own for a football fan

  7. Richard Fruin

    Was so excited to get this game, l played with my brother against my 9 year old daughter and his 8 year old son to help us all understand the rules. We weren’t disappointed it’s like championship manager meets subbuteo. I’ve never cheered at a die roll so much and that was our keeper making a save. Can’t wait to play this game again. Fun for all the family. Highly recommend.

  8. Matthijs

    What a wonderful game. Made with so much love and eye for detail! Can’t wait until to play more!

  9. Matteo Martino

    If you love board games and football than you must buy this game. It’s a tactical battle and it feels like a real match. May the force be with you…

    Simply and incredible game to play.
    Football manager meets Subbuteo, its easy to pickup and play and no two games are ever the same.
    Hours of fun and can be customised to suit younger players or add in things for the more advanced players.

    I have been looking for a game of this type for years. Simply the best football strategy board game out there. The rules are developed to create a game that is always stimulating and never boring or repetitive. The author is always looking for refinements. 5 stars well deserved.
    Erano anni che cercavo un gioco di questo tipo. Semplicemente il miglior gioco da tavolo di strategia calcistica che esista. Il regolamento è sviluppato in modo da creare un gioco sempre stimolante e mai noioso o ripetitivo. L’autore è sempre alla ricerca di perfezionamenti. 5 stelle meritatissime
