The game of foosball is a skillful game imitating soccer on a much smaller scale. Each player controls four sets of players. The players on each set are held together by a bar so they all move in unison. The amount of players varies in each set. In the one closest you goal you usually have just one player, on the next one out you usually have two, on the next one out you usually have five, and on the set farthest from your goal you usually have three. These are standard numbers however they vary from manufacture to manufacture. The object of the game is to kick a small white ball into your opponents goal. Play starts by one player dropping the ball onto the field from a shoot sticking out the side. Games are generally played to ten. The game of foosball is both exciting to play but is also entertaining to watch because of the non-stop action.
