Subbuteo Table Soccer, the 'replica of Association Football', grew out of the 1920's game 'New Footy'. Developed by Peter Adolph in 1947 (chalk pitches were drawn out on old Army blankets), the heyday of the game was in the 1960s and 1970s when more than 300,000 miniature teams were sold each year. By 1980 Subbuteo Rugby Sevens, Cricket and Hockey 'for girls' were in existence, and Peter Adolph was convinced he could more or less 'Subbuteoize' almost any aspect of real life: hence replica Subbuteo models of the Beatles came to pass and Subbuteo Moon Landings were investigated. The comparative failures of Subbuteo 'Snooker Express' and Subbuteo Angling to take off in the eighties, the increased involvement of black players in the (real) game and the rapid changing of club strips all posed individual problems for the manufacturers, and, despite heroic attempts to keep up with the changing game, Waddington's sold Subbuteo to the American toy giant Hasbro in the mid-nineties. Fans feared this was the end and in 2000 Hasbro duly caused national outrage by annnouncing plans to cease production. Retrospectively (a la Heinz Salad Cream) this has been viewed as a cynical attempt to boost flagging sales and secure some free advertising space. Today, over 300,000 games are sold worldwide, 70,000 of those in the UK. The book will be illustrated (approx 150 photographs) in full colour, and will feature approximately 30,000 words.


"Packed with a host of absorbing facts and anecdotes" HAM & HIGH, 3 September "Fascinating reading" SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY "Written with trainspotterish enthusiasm... Tatarsky covers every possible angle. The brilliant retro-hip colour design greatly add to the nostalgic appeal of the book." THE TIMES, The Game, 27 September "The best football book not actually about football ever! An endlessly entertaining compendium of the best table football game ever invented." LEEDS, LEEDS, LEEDS fanzine, September "A fantastic book, lovingly written and lavishly illustrated." VALLEY REVIEW (CHARLTON ATHLETIC FANZINE), 27/10 "A dandy little book, illustrated in a way that will have you moist-eyed with nostalgia." LADSMAG.COM, September "A gem, abundant with images, facts, myths and nostalgia, all lovingly couched in a suitably retro layout. The witty narrative holds the attention and creates a pace that conveys some of his lasting schoolboy enthusiasm." FLUX magazine, Nov/Dec 04 "Beautifully produced." PROGRAMME MONTHLY, December

As far as I know, this is the only 'history' of Subbuteo and a wonderful trip down memory lane for players of this great table top soccer game.

What a fun trip down memory lane this book turned out to be. The history of the Subbuteo company (all the ups and downs) is laid out beautifully with loads of pictures. The personal side of the creator and the company's workers is also a nice touch. It really is a story Brits are too familair with: the decline and fall of British companies.

The only thing missing would be some sort of chapter on the modern rebirth of the game, the post-subbuteo Table Soccer stuff, but there's plenty of resources online for that.
