Now come on, where's Waddington's Table Soccer, where's 4-4-2?
Although of course you have the right #1.

I don't know of either of those, Flicktokick. Personal favourites of yours?

The Waddington's game is based on tiddlywinks, with a cardboard pitch, you might think it's no wonder they bought subbuteo.
4-2-4 (my mistake) is a game loved the look of in an advert in the early 70's part-work 'Book of Football' with its subbuteo-like figures on large wedge shaped bases. I never got to play it, but did find a box in my wife's uncle's house and am hoping to get a game sometime.

There's a potted history of 4-2-4 and other football games at
