    Default Subbuteo is BACK! Tournament@Orchard Central!

    Come this weekend, you will see the revival of long time favourite of us Gen-x'ers.

    Subbuteo is a table football game played one-on-one where miniature football players are flicked, shot and jumped around with finger tips a la carrom-style, in order to kick the ball into your opponents goal post.

    International players from Scotland, England and Australia will come pit themselves head to head against our local heroes such as Den Mulia Yusni, 5 time national champion and 1994 Subbuteo World Cup placing 8th among 24 nations.

    Come and have a blast of macro-action sports guys!

    Hmmm.. is this a real competition or just an exhibition? I used to have a whole set of Subbuteo with a "league" of national/epl teams. Wonder if they sell merchandise also.

    Will definitely drop by to have a look. Anyone capturing the action there this weekend?

    Yeah this is a real competition as recognised by TSPA.

    I heard they might be bringing down full sets for sale too.

    Also, there'll be a sign up for a public contest to be held on 3/4 and 10/11 July complete with cool prizes.

    Registrants may get manicure vouchers from a high-end boutique for their female partners!

    Surprised to know there's still a following in this pre-Internet era game. Will bring my kids there to see.

    I remember last time that we kids are poor, we use folded papers instead and crushed mini paper balls to play. Kudos!
