This is the boldest concept for a World Cup board game ever devised. You can play the very first World Cup tournament which took place back in 1930, or you can play the more recent World Cup tournament in 2002.
Players will control the destinies of the national teams, taking them through the group stages into the knock-out stages and hopefully to the greatest prize itself—The World Cup!
THE WORLD CUP GAME has a subtle mix of luck and skill. Through the play of cards each player will score goals, press attacks and shore up defences; but fouls, offsides and penalties can thwart your strategy. All matches in each round are resolved simultaneously, so a complete World Cup tournament can be played from to 3 hours.
Revel in the nostalgia of the 1930 World Cup, or the thrills and ‘tears’ of the penalty shoot-out
to decide the fate of teams in 2002.
It’s all in THE WORLD CUP GAME — the whistle has gone, let play begin!
