Otherwise known as table football or table soccer, foosball is a very engaging and interesting sport, and one of the most popular football-related table-top game. You’ve probably seen your fair share of foosball tables in older movies or TV shows, which makes sense as the activity was invented in 1921. The main purpose of the game is to move the ball into your opponent’s goal using control knobs. While it might seem easy at a glance, playing foosball properly requires quite a bit of dexterity and quick reaction times.
There are no unified rules for playing foosball, and rules can vary greatly between countries, cities, and even clubs. When it comes to pricing, a conventional foosball table would set you back no more than $200 at the time of writing, which means that you can definitely pick one up without breaking the bank.
