HEADED GOAL   (Version 3 )

Text based soccer replay simulation from ROOGAMES, very realistic and fun to play, decisions to take or watch it autoplay. THE Soccer Replay Game for the computer !!

SaaP Title

An excellent thinking mans soccer management game, not so many features you cant remember what's going on but enough to keep you immersed and playing.

If you want a graphical Soccer Manager style games this game is very good. It gets my first place vote this year for the first time. I have not liked the lack of playing field in the past, just text but last year this was addressed. HOWEVER last year there were in my view a number of issues with it but this year it seems to be there ! You might prefer one of the others so try the  demos.

If you want a graphical Soccer Manager style games this game is also very good.

  The Beautiful Game

This HAS as to be THE BEST non computer soccer game there is !

The Beautiful Game is an accurate replay game, accurate in results that is, and goal scorers, but unlike most soccer replay games it requires no user-decisions (which will appeal to some but not all) and is fast to play, just four to ten minutes per match, depending on how much you want to know in terms of stats.

'BG' is a layer game, three layers in this case, the basic quick-result is layer one, add on some personality with goal scorers, times of goals, that's layer two, and get involved in some simple book-keeping by recording (generic) bookings and injuries and rewarding winning form, plus adding some 'joining up' commentary, that's layer three. Even with all three layers most matches will take no more than 6-7 minutes, unless it's a real cracker !                                   Lambourne / Owzat Games
 

The FA Cup Game

A game that will enable you to stage your own version of the event - not really  a simulation as the contents of this package in no way attempts to 'simulate' any particular F.A. Cup year, but instead provides you with the tools to run your own competition for any year, at any stage of the season, provided you have the full English league tables then current. Expect the unexpected, worry when your favourite Premiership team decides to field a very much under-strength team at home against the latest 'giant-killer',                                  Lambourne / Owzat Games

====================================================================

.......is a table top game but isn't a highlight game. Statistically, a game should come up to about 271 rolls of the dice, meaning (including extra time) each roll will consist of about 20 seconds of action. The game highlights what may have been the particular important play during that period of time. Players should perform reasonably accurate to what their actual stats were during the season if you use them with similar playing time. Nearly ALL action is taken from the player cards themselves, there are limited other charts and they will be remembered after a few games.

How long does it take to play? 45 mins to an hour - It really depends on how many stats you keep. most of my time is spent filling in detailed scoresheets and full time reports if you wish to keep them to read later. Teams perform based on the individual players' abilities on that team. There isn't a team rating for defense that just makes a team great defensively regardless who is on the pitch. The same goes for offense.  And because the players are statistically designed for so many aspects of soccer, they really do play with their individual characteristics.  There isn't a system that you declare you want to be a certain formation and suddenly through some magic universal chart the team suddenly becomes better or worse because you declare it. THE PLAYERS you put on the pitch determine that. If you are up by 1 with 10 minutes left, if you want to become more defensive, a defensive midfielder's or a defender's card will help encourage that shift in play based on their card performances. If you want to attack for a goal with three forwards, chances are you'll get more scoring chances, but the lack of quality players with a lot of tackles, interecepts and shot ability on them means you are tempting on getting burned as well. If I want to be a 4-5-1, my players on the pitch better reveal that and you'll see that type of play out of your team. You can't just say "I'm being defensive" and keep three forwards out on the pitch. That won't work -.everything is statistically derived

SOCCER BLAST Pro Soccer Game

The result: a sports board game that gives fans everything they love about watching soccer, captured in a 30-45 minute game window.

Despite the quick playing time, SOCCER BLAST gives you surprising detail and the genuine sense of witnessing a full, realistic football match from start to finish.

Do I take a shot from the scoring zone, or try to penetrate for a better scoring chance. If the game is tied late in the second half, do I play conservative, or do I play aggressive and go for the win? My star midfielder just collapsed due to heat exhaustion. How do I replace his offense? How do I replace his defense? Once you have a solid understanding of the cards, charts, and gameplay, you should be able to play a full regulation match in about thirty minutes

Mean Marks EPL Challenge

 

Mark Crankshaw has sent me details of his Soccer Game which can be found and downloaded here with instructions and all details. Go check it out !  In his own words:-

"Iíve just completed the latest version of a soccer game that Iíve designed. I played a lot of Strat-o-Matic as a kid, and Iíve always wondered how SOM would have handled soccer. Iíve taken the liberty of producing a game as I would imagine that Strat-o-Matic would. The 2011-2012 English Premier League game Iíve designed should be statistically accurate, fun to play, and have most of the results read of the player cards just as with SOMís other games"

Nick Cantwell's MATCH DAY SOCCER

 

MNick Cantwell  has sent me details of his Soccer Game which can be DOWNLOADED here with instructions and all details. Download and check it out !!

The overall game is in Excel which features everything, with an added page with rules and charts in pdf format for easy printing. It's a relatively straightforward game that sees one fixture played in around 5 to 10 minutes. In writing it he tried to create the almost unexpected nature of football, so you've got the goal chances alongside the game events (penalties, injuries and sending offs). Each game is divided into six 15 minute segments, where dice rolls will resolve both the score and the game events.
