Does anyone know where I can buy some legs for a sixties Mini Soccer game? I think they were wooden ones but standard metal ones would do the job. Any info or manuals etc. on this game would be great.
See the US patent here.The electro-mechanical age brought Minisoccer, marketed from 1964 by Minisoccer Ltd., of Southall, Middlesex (patented by Albert Leslie Cane in 1965), which enjoyed a period of popularity with its sixteen miniature players running up and down the pitch in parallel tracks and pivoting to kick. It was the first game in which the footballers had to chase the ball to keep up with the action, and skillful interceptions were possible. The goalies were hand cranked, the score at each end was registered by rows of bulbs, and following the rules of football, the ball returned to play until time ran out. A six-a-side hockey variant employed the same tracking player system, and was covered by the same patents.
