Beautiful game just got more beautiful

Eleven, the Beautiful Game, is table football with a difference: you can’t buy it, and even if you could, you probably could not afford it.

“For many of us, table football is a game that is close to our hearts, holding cherished memories of our childhood and youth. Its popularity also reflects the passion and love that millions of people around the world share for ‘the beautiful game’ of football.”

GRO design’s chrome-tastic representation of this classic prelude to pub and family violence will be on show at Milan Design Week, from 16-21 April, and other venues listed at its news page.

The current revisions of the Table Football article at wikipedia—wherein we learn that “stoopid retard is a common name in English” and that “Steven is a man eater”—is a blast.

    Beautiful.

    But wouldn’t be nice to play on. Those slippery players would be tough to control a ball with.

    Still, beautiful.

    I used to have a professional table in my home – and I agree with CHICO. The table is beautiful, but the players need rubber feet for real play.

    Awesome! But I really want that anti-gravity orange ball. Do you think it’s the color that makes it float?
