Retailing at £29.99, the firm claims that Socceristic is “the only football board game that features every rule in football”. Features include scoring goals, tackles, offsides, fouls, sending offs and substitutions, among others. One-off matches, leagues or knock-out competitions can be played.

The game had its first public airing at the UK Games Expo.

Meanwhile Quadraughts, retailing at £14.99, is the re-created version of the classic board game draughts. The game can be played by four people and has a board with a 13x13 square grid, four sets of coloured draught pieces and 36 other pieces.

Quadraughts was also shown for the first time at the Expo.
