Never got to play it as a bairn :evil:

Is it true that 'modern' subbuteo doesn't have proper plastic players, but just has cardboard cutouts stuck to the bases?
? I must have some booze. I demand to have some booze.
? This place has become impossible. Nothing to eat, freezing cold and now a madman on the prowl outside with eels.

I used to have a footie game where you pushed down the head of the player, and it would make him kick the ball. Any idea what it was called?

Sad Geek!!!!!!

Devoting his life to catalogueing every single item made by Subbuteo....and you call him sad.

How very dare you!!!!! :wink:

Bet you can't find a pic of him - that will dispell the sad geek myth. He's a looker and no mistake :shock:
