I have the flyer for it somewhere and the machine itself...
Did you ever find the flyer? And if so, can you post a picture of it?

Lucky Dice & Henkeltöpfchen:
A year before Sepp Herberger led the German national soccer team to the first world championship title in Bern, this purely mechanical device appeared in the home country of Broder Fritz and Ottmar Walter. The manufacturer, the Stuttgart-based company Seipel, had already been successful a year earlier with the "FuBball Club", a device whose game idea, procedure and function were almost identical to the "FuBball Match". The latter quickly became a sales success, because in the 50s such entertainment games enjoyed increasing popularity. Decisive for good sales was the offer of free installation with purchase approval.

22 figures, i.e. two complete soccer teams, compete against each other and are moved with a rotary knob. The field players can be turned on their fixed axes by the player using the left button on the side. By pushing the levered arm on the top right, the kickers lift their movable right leg, attempting to kick the ball towards the opposing goal. The goalkeepers are moved by a pivoted arm across the goal line. In the event of a goal, points can be recorded on manual score disks on the top of the device. The game starts by slinging the ball into the middle of the field, in an operation similar to a pinball machine.

Very nice! Where is that from? Is there another brochure?

I sure would like to find a picture of the manual score disks on the top. I have the base part of them...but no idea what the top part looks like.

HELP :-)

I've run into a slight "roadblock". When I got this, the chains that turn the players had fallen off. For the life of me, I can't figure out the path they need to take. Is anyone able to draw up a little diagram of their path??? Also, when they turn, do ALL the players of each "team" turn in the same direction?

I feel like I hit the all time jackpot! Taking the rest of the game apart to start working on the cabinet....someone at some point, over the last 70 years, drew a little picture on the inside.

Now that was very helpful of somebody. !THUMBS!
I have one of these games, but unfortunately I can't access it at present. I'm pretty sure it has the score dials, so I will take a picture when I can. Looks like you have plenty of other work in the meantime.

The first picture and (translated) text are from the German book I linked to. I think I do have a colour brochure for the game somewhere...

I was BEYOND elated when I found it !!YIPPEE!!

Starting in on refinishing the wood work and cabinet (waiting on a pile of metric hardware I had to order to get here). ALL the veneer is falling off and it's going to have to be re-veneered. Slowly but surely, it's coming back to life.

Pics of the score dials would be fantastic...Thank you!
