Flick to Kick
people have heard of the football game Subbuteo, few probably
realise that this international game was invented in Langton Green,
Subbuteo was invented in 1947 by Peter Adolph from his home in
Langton Green and the game continued to be manufactured in the
Tunbridge Wells area until 1981.
The last 60 years have been a rollercoaster for Subbuteo. At its
peak the game boasted 7 million players worldwide in 50 countries.
However, sales slumped in the late 1990s and production ceased
altogether in 2002. But Subbuteo refused to go away and Hasbro
re-launched the game in March 2005 starting a new chapter in the
story of Subbuteo.
This online exhibition charts the developement of Subbuteo from
1947 to 2005.
There are several themes for you to explore, as well as a
timeline, and a forum for you to add
your own Subbuteo stories.
