“Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”Bill Shankly
Striker! is a set of straightforward rules for playing realistic miniature football (or soccer, depending on your side of the pond) matches on the tabletop. Each match plays just like a wargame using miniatures to represent players. Challenges, passes and shots on goal are resolved by rolling dice. Many strategies and tactics that are employed in a real football match also apply to this game: midfield pressing, tiki-taka passing, switches of play, and many more. If you can do it on a football field, Striker! allows you to do it on the tabletop. The game is meant for 2 players, but can also be played in groups or even solo! It takes about 90 – 120 minutes to play.
