Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Growing up with Subbuteo by Mark Adolph. Mark Adolph was the envy of his schoolmates - he never had any problem getting rare Subbuteo teams because his Dad invented the game and owned the factory that made it.
Mark tells the story of Subbuteo from the very early days when his father Peter had thousands of orders but no games with which to supply them. Then began the frantic process of making the game and suggesting it should be played on a pitch made from an old Army blanket!

Growing up with Subbuteo: My Dad Invented the World's Greatest Football Game
Growing Up with Subbuteo
Many of us grew up with Subbuteo, the addictive table football game. Hours that would have been more productively spent on homework were instead dedicated to perfecting that index-finger flick that would swerve a miniature plastic mannequin around an opposing plastic mannequin and knock the ball into the corner of the diminutive net. His father, Peter, invented the game as a way out of post-war penury and developed it into an international brand with a compelling hold on the imagination of the world's teenagers. It would be nice to say that Adolph Jnr's tale, subtitled "My Dad invented the world's greatest football game", exercises a similar hold on the reader, but sadly this is not the case. The raw material is splendid, in that Peter Adolph was a James Bond-like figure, a hard-drinking womaniser with a penchant for fast British sports cars, far removed from the kind of man you would associate with table football.
