Packed with great retro photographs and designs from the original Waddington's/Hasbro archive, here is a fascinating, affectionate account of the life of the father of subbuteo, Peter Adolph, and the roots and the ups and downs of his soccer board game company. Revisit the all-time best-selling teams and the first Subbuteo World Cup; meet the enthusiasts and see their amazing collections; laugh at some of the pointless accessories like floodlights, spin-offs like Subbuteo Snooker, and trivia: remember when the 1980 World Champion had his flicking finger insured? It's a celebration of the games and a great gift for fans.
