Description

The World Cup Game is a football (soccer) game that is like no other soccer game. This is the first of its kind that closely resembles the current genre of German-style boardgames that have become so popular in recent years. It is not a quiz game and it is not a single match style soccer game, but it covers two complete tournaments - the 1930 tournament in Uruguay and the 2002 tournament in Korea and Japan. Two games in one box. The 1930 game takes around an hour to play, while the 2002 game takes around 3 hours to play. The box is weighty, coming in at just under 2kg, so you get a lot for your money. The components are 2 large boards, 74 National flag tiles, 182 Action tiles, 87 Action cards, 36 Plastic footballs, 4 'blob'dice, 3 score sheets, a rulebook and the box! Home Page: http://www.gamesfortheworld.co.uk/worldcupgame.html Expanded by: The World Cup Game - Expansion 1 (contains World Cups of 1958, 1962 and 1966, and a sheet of all flags needed for the expansions) The World Cup Game - Expansion 2 (contains World Cups of 1934, 1938 and 2006) The World Cup Game - Expansion 3 (contains World Cups of 1950, 1986 and 1990 and Euro 2008) The World Cup Game - Expansion 4 (contains World Cups of 1974, 1978, 1982 and 1994) The World Cup Game - Expansion 5 (contains World Cups of 1954, 1970 and 1998) The World Cup Game - Expansion 6 (Contains World Cup of 2010 and the new expansion card set) Cardgame version: The World Cup Card Game 2010
