Buying Subbuteo equipment:
Learning the rules:
I have always been a table football fan: Back in my Ruhrgebiet childhood in the German 1980s, my younger brother I were playing Tipp-Kick every weekend. We cowered on the floor, asked ourselves why they call it a table(!) game, and listened to WDR 2’s live radio coverage of Bundesliga matches. We re-enacted the players’ moves and goals and were happy boys.

Even the best professional Subbuteo bases won’t glide very well unless you polish them regularly. In order to increase the lubricity of your figures, it’s necessary to rub the bottom of their bases quickly over a suitable polishing cloth.

These DIY-floodlights for Subbuteo provide a great atmosphere at my attic when I play a match of Subbuteo. You’ll just need a set of four LED spots and some pieces of wood to reconstruct them.
Well, the picture above needs some explanations: I used two strong neodymium magnets for each floodlight to create a flexible holder. I screwed one magnet (diameter 1 cm) on the pitch and one into the floodlight pylon.… Weiterlesen
In this gallery, I will give you some impressions about my Subbuteo Astropitch. In winter 2015, I mounted a self adhesive playing field on a MDF board and created wooden surroundings. It has been a great training capacity ever since.

It all started with a Pegasus astroturf pitch and a set of ad labels I bought from Subbuteoworld.
