I went to an exhibition about a year ago and was playing with a golf toy that was really cool- I had never seen anything like it and my Dad and me both really liked it, so I was really excited to find out the same company had now made a football version of the game.
The MiniMaster Football Game is the perfect game for a rainy day. It comes with everything you need for an indoor football game. In the box you get a net, a target, a spinner, marker tape and position marker, a defensive wall, a footballer, a lever, a display stand and plenty of balls. The footballer is very detailed and looks great, it arrives with you in a plain white kit so you can decorate him for your team or even make up your own kit, you can play with it and then use the display stand to show off your custom painting.
I like the way this game can be played in many different ways. You can either attach the lever to the player and use the spinner to work out how far away you need to shoot from, use the markers and tape, and then aim against the defensive wall or you can put up the target screen and aim for the different targets which let you get points. The smaller, more difficult holes get you the most points. If you just want to have a bit of a practice you could even just aim at the empty goal and see how far you can score from.
Once you get the hang of making the footballer kick it is really easy to get into this game. You just have to attach the lever to the player and pull it up to move his kicking leg- there is bit you can look through to help line up the shot before you take it and then you are ready to go.
I have found the MiniMaster Football Game fun to play on my own but also with other people, my sister, my friends, my Dad and my Grandad have all enjoyed playing it with me. It’s quite addictive and even if you aren’t playing a proper game it’s good to just have a couple of shots every so often- I think everyone who has come into out house over the last few weeks has had a go!
The player is very well made and fits well into the display stand. It is 22cm high and can kick a really long way! I am really looking forward to getting some paints and decorating my footballer. I think it would be quite good if you could buy either some stencils or stickers from MiniMaster to help with customising your player.
I think the MiniMaster Football Game will get played with a lot over the summer, both inside and out and it could easily become a kids against adults challenge!
