Minisocca (Tru-life)

A 1950s rods movement game which I think is a prototype version. The box contains two additional alternate box lid graphic designs sheets. Very nicely thought through and lovely ball shaped player movement handles that rotate well.

The pitch
The pitch
A nice slab of hardboard with slots for player movement. Decent metal rods and goals. The classic game where players move using rods that twist as well.
The players

Solid plastic figures in a variety of poses, quite crude but nicely sculpted.

Players run up and down the pitch thanks to controller rods that also twist to make them kick.

Interestingly this game comes with two alternate cover sticker designs. Makes me think it is a prototype or patent model.
