Results of the survey - 20 people answered to the questions about the structure of the WASPA circuit. The question was "Do you think we should have 2 types of tournaments already next season if we keep "regional" tournaments as they are and "national tournaments with the possibility for each club to host one tournament per season?
As we are not sure it will be a very good thing to make different types of tournaments, the circuit wil remain as it is at least till January. If there are good proposals and ideas to make sure "national tournaments" are something special, this will be discussed through another survey. There is interest also from Spain, Greece and the UK so hopefully there will be many more tournaments in the next few months. New project in Malaysia - CK Au jack boardgamecafe.

Hi-tech Japan gets lo-tech Subbuteo
My life has completely revolved around soccer from my first memories playing the sport in the local playgrounds of Wales where I grew up through to my adult years living and working in the United States where I now reside. Thinking back, my favorite game growing up was undoubtedly Subbuteo. I must have gotten my first set when I was seven. At the time, I played the game every weekend when my cousin would visit me. A typical Saturday for us would be a combination of playing soccer in the street and then coming indoors to play Subbuteo if it started to rain, which it often did. We would play the game of Subbuteo for hours until the sports program Grandstand came on TV and we would then listen attently to the final scores of all of the professional soccer games that were played across Britain that day. What I remember about Subbuteo in those days was the cloth pitch that we would stretch across the carpet, but we soon realized that the playing surface was almost impossible to play.
