You can read a wealth of reviews of Counter Attack:

Some snippets of reviews appear below.

“This is a game that is easy to learn but hard to master. The level of tactical depth is really impressive. Colin, the creator, has somehow managed to translate almost every aspect of football into dice rolls, hexes and player attributes! Games are injected with real drama and nothing beats a successful dice roll resulting in a goal-saving tackle or the ball nestling in the back of your opponents net! ”

“The greatness of this game really needs to be experienced to be believed. Colin has done an incredible job, and manages to get the excitement in the game the minute the board is on the table, as soon as those cards are being drafted your mind is going, then its what formation, shortly followed by masterminding your attack, preventing a goal, protecting a lead, going direct and taking your chance as time ticks down. Every box i wanted this game to tick it succeeds with a degree of ease.”

Listen to this review on The Football Media Podcast:

“The movement phase is really reflective of a game of football. You have to really think about where you’ll place your players. It felt to me like I was very much playing a football version of Settlers of Catan or Carcassonne.”

“It’s simple but complicated: it took me about 20 minutes to get into the swing of things. There are a lot of moves I just didn’t try this time around, and that shows there is longevity in the game. Nice work!”

“Maybe a bit of a rogue comment for a review however I wasn’t sure if I’d like this game to begin with..sure I like football however I was curious to find out how a sport could be translated into a football strategy board game. I tell you what, Counter Attack nailed it and exceeded my expectations! After playing it for the first time I was keen to get back to the board to play again and learn from my successes or (mistakes as it happened). I definitely have a favourite player too – get Ruiz in your team for banging the goals in.
