'4-2-4' Table Football Game
Vintage '4-2-4' Table Soccer Game (1970)
(Stock no. VG44)
The '4-2-4' Table Football game was a direct competitor to Subbuteo Table Soccer, and was designed to more a realistic simulation of football tactics.
Although '4-2-4' sold in much smaller numbers than Subbuteo, it had a loyal following and is an excellent tactical football game.
Complete '4-2-4' games in good condition are now very rare and sought after.
The game we currently have for sale, pictured on this page, is a first edition which dates from around 1970. The game is complete, and apart from repairs to three of the players, is in excellent condition throughout.
Players: Excellent (apart from 3 figures which have been re-stuck back on to their bases - see picture at bottom of page).
Box: Very Good
The game itself is excellent condition for its age. The player figures, which are easily broken, have generally survived well. They are all original and are generally in excellent condition. Three players have been re-stuck back on to their bases (see picture below).
There is some glue residue around their feet but this has been painted so that it is not too obtrusive.
The pitch and goals are in excellent condition.
The box has light storage wear, but nothing serious.
