Balyna magnetic 'Super Soccer'
Yet another version of the Balyna football game, this time with magentic players, paddles and a raised pitch. There were several different magnetic versions of the game with different sized players. I have a number of different sets for sale and a good selection of spares if you are missing pieces.
