I know there is Subutteo (though I've never played it).

Any other good options?

Troll Ball!

We are due for another round of the Jurassic World Cup soon…



Unfortunately, with the move of timing, it conflicts with our annual WWI Truce football game


Any sides you want. Any terrain you want. Any level of "chippiness". Even more traditional(?) ones …

There was a soccer miniatures game produced in Greece, but if I recall correctly, the publisher/designer died rather abruptly and the game disappeared.

Well, there was this discussion about the rules Corner Kick. TMP link

Two Hour Wargames: A Beautiful Game

I also have to chime in about Corner Kick!!!

I think that it is a really fun game (Not that I am biased about it or anything.) My dad or I typically run a game or two at Historicon and Cold Wars. We have run a couple of World Cup tournaments at Historicon with Brasil winning the first two (once in a penalty kick shootout against Spain) and Croatia upsetting France 2-1 four years ago.
Our problem is the lag time trying to guess who the best teams are to paint them. In three attempts we got 4 correct once, and 3 correct the two other times.

The game is designed to fit on a Subutteo pitch (mat)and there are a couple of miniatures manufacturers out there who make 25mm figures.

If anyone wants further information, they can email me at my username at msn dot com.

For the record we playtested it with some professional soccer/futbol players. A keeper out of the Scottish 2nd Division and some Brasilians who were reserve team players or ex-players for Gremio.

Not entirely serious, but is the Tipp-Kick Socker Game known in the USA or UK?
It's fun.

"Corner Kick!," and its printed game accessories, is still for sale in its PDF Edition for $15.00 USD with permission by the Author from the publisher.

E-mail delivered copies may still be ordered by writing

Based on the late Spyros Koumousis' original ms, and fully developed and thoroughly playtested, all those who bought it and cared to comment called it easily the best miniatures game on the subject.

Still here to help is
