Tell me more about the rugby board game Crash Tackle™
Crash Tackle™ is the rugby union board game that brings all the fast paced heart pumping action of real rugby right to your table top!
Crash Tackle™ is a strategy based sports board game that is played by two 'Coaches' who must manoeuvre their team of 15 players around the field in a battle of wits, strategy and luck. Crash Tackle™ authentically mirrors the infinite variety of on-field rugby situations where the right moves bring points, but errors of judgment are punished!
Yet it appeals equally to novice and expert, as a family game that can be enjoyed as much by beginners as by the seasoned rugby union enthusiast.
What makes Crash Tackle™ so unique?
Well, primarily it is the level of control and involvement that the player or "coach" has in the game. Unlike the many on-line fantasy rugby simulations and sports games where a team is constructed and the results of matches are calculated based on team statistics, Crash Tackle™ allows the coach to make decisions for each player and the rugby team as a whole - and all in response to his opponents moves. This is a level of control that even rugby console games, despite the obvious attractions of arcade game-play, cannot offer.
Crash Tackle™ is rather like chess for rugby enthusiasts, with a startling degree of realism. Rugby players and fans are constantly surprised by the parallels that can be drawn between Crash Tackle™ and the sport of rugby union itself.
