Finger Football (Junior Model)
A huge cracker of an old parlour game (over four feet in length) from the 1930s I guess. Sturdy wood and metal construction. Played with a ping pong ball it's simply a question of flicking your paddles up using the keys so that the ball is flicked to the other goal. A wire net keeps the ball in play.
A huge old parlour game made to last, well used with signs of corrosion etc.
Hit the key at the end of the table to flip up each paddle to move the ball around.
Very robust wood and metal sprung levers activate the paddles.
A huge long playing pitch.
A simple enough game to understand. Nice touch to change ends at half time.
The Junior Model
This 'Junior model' is over 4 feet in length! I wonder how large the senior model would be?
Beautiful old timber and metal construction
Each paddle is numbered and colour coded to avoid confusion.
The goalkeeper is a large paddle at the end of the pitch with three raised flaps to help trap the ball. The keepers are prone to being chipped though as there is a space above them before then netting starts.
