Beer crate Folk art game

Well I wanted the 400th game added to the site to be something special or different and then this game popped up at auction!

It is a home made folk art table football game made using a very old Belgian Trappist Abbey beer crate from Sint Sixtue Abbey in Westverleteren, which gives the game some unusual dimensions and a cramped midfield.

The perfect game to be welcomed as out 400th game on the site.

Take one vintage beer crate from a Belgian Trappist monk abbey and dd some woodworking skills and you have a fabulous table football game!
The pitch

Fashioned from a gorgeous vintage beer carte, magnificent but gives some spatial issues!
The players

Delightfully painted figures, probably home made or possibly from a commercial game.
Congested midfield

With 22 players packed into a pitch measuring 46 x 31cm the midfield is a war zone. Hoddle would not have enjoyed this pitch.
The players

Nice wooden figures hand painted with some decent age.
Players are 12cm tall which would make the scaled up pitch dimensions 23 feet long and 16 feet wide, no wonder there is no space!

The yellows appear to have enjoyed a bottle or two of Sint Sixtus's finest ales.

Sadly the game is totally unplayable due to the small dimensions but I absolutely love it.
