Foootball is a tactical dice game for 1-4 players, ages 8+.
In this fast-paced tactical football game the teams secretly select their attacking and defending tactics, trying to outwit their opponent.
And they roll lots of dice!
The game includes solo rules, pitting the player team against classic play styles such as Tiki-Taka, Catenaccio and Total Football.
In addition of being fun and exciting, the game also makes an important contribution to gender equality in football. The game’s art puts women in the spotlight, planting seeds for new role models.
The game is currently in PROTOTYPE stage. Would you like to take part in playtest? email: email@example.com
The Attacking team, in possession of the ball, have 6 different attacking options.
The through ball is the most efficient form of attack, but in so being also the most likely to be defended against by the Defending team.
The attacking team can therefore opt for a dribble, pass or wing play instead, to get past the unexpecting defence.
Long Ball (purple frame) is the cautious option, as it is not only a decent form of attack, but also grants defence against a counter-attack.
Finally, the attacking team can forgo their attack by playing Back-Pass (yellow frame), retaining possession of the ball and just making the match clock run down. This is a useful tactic if the team is in the lead.
It is from these attacking options that the Defending team must anticipate what the Attacking team will play, and defend accordingly. Luckily they always overlap two different attacks whichever defensive option they play. One of the attacks to defend against should probably be the otherwise so effective through ball.
Or they can throw caution to the wind and instead of defending go for a counter-attack (blue frame), hoping to score a surprise goal themselves.
