Subbuteo is a football game that at one point was one of the most popular games in the world. It is a classic finger-flicking soccer-simulation action game. It is played on a large cloth playing field, with teams of players that are represented by miniature men mounted on smooth round bases. The men are made to kick the ball by flicking their bases, which causes the men to slide around on the pitch, hitting the ball. The rules simulate nearly all details of a soccer game including ball possession and passing, throw-ins, goal kicks and corner kicks. There is even a large section in the rules devoted to fouling.

Collectors can buy teams of men representing dozens of teams and countries from around the world, along with soccer stadium enhancements such as stands filled with cheering fans, referees, dugouts, even stadium lights. It is still available today and if you check ebay, you will see that this game has much more to offer than two teams, a ball and 2 goals.
