  1. Hi everyone. A while back I posted that I was making a football board game...well, now it's arrived! (I'm an Inverness CT fan by the way, which is why I'm posting here) Check out the photos of my game, Counter Attack, below. It's a multiplayer football strategy game - the world's first, as it happens ? Find a few pals, draft a team and then play every move on the pitch. I even made an ICT team as an optional add-on. What could be better? Order now in time for Christmas at counterattackgame.com. Use code SCOTTISHFITBA for a nice wee £8 discount ?
  2. Hi, I'm an ICT fan and I made a football strategy game you might be interested in. Counter Attack is a two-player football strategy game that you can play at your kitchen table. You and a friend each manage a team of players. You try to outwit each other on the pitch by making passes, runs, tackles, shots, saves...by doing everything you can do in a game of football! I'm delighted that the game has had great reviews! I've been working on this a lot since last August, gathering people's opinions and sending it out for review. The game is currently on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter where it'll be for 12 more days. I'm really pleased that I met the funding goal for the game quite quickly, but I feel I need a few more sales to help me deal with any unexpected bumps in the road... Check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/counterattack/counter-attack-the-football-strategy-game/ The game has kept me so busy I've barely been to any Inverness matches this season. In fact...I've not been to any :( My girlfriend is a Dundee Utd fan so we hope to go to the playoffs together! Here's a couple of photos:
  3. I'm available most Saturdays and every Tuesday night. I have a golden career in Football Manager and I'm a dab hand at Subbuteo. If the board want to approach me, please message me on Facebook.
  4. Cheers for the info and the offers....the Scotrail offer looks good, so I'll go for that!
  5. I've lost my car and companion for the game tomorrow...anyone going through from Edinburgh with a spare car seat?
  6. I'm driving through from Falkirk at 6pm. Picking up a pal from Falkirk High train station. There are two spare seats in the car if anyone facies a lift. Email me [email protected]
  7. Since it's supposed to be on Alba later, here's hoping no-one at the game swears...
  8. PerthICT's solution works..although it does assume you have a tablet. Best of luck; hope you manage to watch
  9. To the tune of Robin Hood Yogi Hughes, Yogi Hughes Leads the Inverness Yogi Hughes, Yogi Hughes Making them the best If you take us on, You're sure to lose Yogi Hughes, Yogi Hughes, Yogi Hughes
  10. I'm not happy we only have seating behind a goal. I'd much rather we were allocated one of the stands along the length of the pitch. Anyway, moan over! Can't wait for the big day!
  11. I'd put money on it having been Robinson. Anyway...my recording of the match stops in the second half of extra time. Typical, huh?
  12. 1st half was terrible. I thought we looked mildly dangerous on the few occasions we got he ball down. Lovely shot by Doran, and I'd be keen to see Shinnie's effort again - thought he could have laid it off to Doran. 2nd half we walked it - a real turnaround in performance. Ball on the deck, some lovely touches in the final third and a decent amount of composure from the lads on the wings. Nick Ross impressed me most, I would say. Having said that, though, Billy McKay took his goals so well, in particular that first goal. Saw on Twitter there were scouts from Swansea (really?), Sheff Utd and others at the game - no doubt McKay was the main attraction. Now, that would be the first real test for Hughes, wouldn't it? PS Really looking forward to seeing that rugby tackle on Watkins again!
  13. I'll be going. Having seen Hibs v Hearts, we've got to win this one!
  14. Hi folks Is anyone watching the Partick game in an Edinburgh pub tomorrow? Colin
  15. After some sweat, snotters and tears, I managed to convince my dad and brother to come to tomorrow's game in Perth. I told them we'd be presented with the league trophy after winning the game...we'll cross that bridge when we cone to it. Now we could do with knowing which pub the ICT fans will be congregating in Perth pre-match. Any idea?
  16. How do you recommend we get to and from Dingwall for tomorrow's game? Train?
  17. Cheers, tm4tj. Called them and they told me the tickets will be on sale from Monday.
  18. Hi folks I'm planning on heading up for the final game of the season with a bunch of pals. Any thoughts on ticket availability, or even where and when they can be purchased? The Ross Co website is useless, I'm afraid. Do you think I'll be able to get my hands on 8 tickets ok? Booking train tickets today...
  19. Where are folks going for a pre-match drink?
  20. I basically agree with Hislop - damn poor stuff. There was a slump after the Saints got their first goal, then the heads seemed to go down for good after the second. Not for the first time this season we tapped the ball around without having any bite, while looking fragile at the back. Tade will only be as good as the players around him make him look - with better through balls and options to play it to, he'll threaten. He didn't have much/any of either today. Davis looks like he's well built, but was brushed off the ball by a slip of a lad in the first half. Not sure he picked a pass all day. Not convinced by the system either - playing A Shinnie behind the strikers with no-one out on the left. Andrew Shinnie has shown flashes of potential, but not today. Because we rely on him getting on the ball and providing a link, I think the system makes him a passenger if things aren't going our way. Maybe we're not good enough to pass our way through teams...although we demonstrated we can't cross the ball either.
  21. I'll be in the Ormand Stand with a few other Caley fans and a Saint.
  22. I was told school kids in Perth have been given free tickets. If you don't have a free ticket you pay ?5 for kids ?10 for adults. A Saints fan of mine passed on the details - presumably they are on the StJ website.
  23. ?10 adults and ?5 kids in the Ormand Stand. However, you may have to wear a Barbour jacket to avoid detection.
  24. Great first 20 minutes, playing some lovely stuff. Andrew Shinnie looked very good in this spell as we limited Utd to ineffective breaks. Lost a poor goal but scored a worse one(from Utd's point of view). Golabert certainly to blame for the 2nd goal. Body language of his teammates didn't bode well for the guy after the goal - noone approached the guy...wonder if he's already been warned about taking risks as the last man. Presumably Terry tore strips off him at HT as he was withdrawn. We didn't turn up 2nd half; very disappointing. Graham Shinnie plugged away but not sure if anyone else deserved pass marks. Tade worked hard and pestered the opposition but there's not much in terms of end product. In conclusion, pretty grim times, with a sprinkling of just-visible hope.
  25. Oh - hadn't seen the match report, only the comments on this thread. How long until Barca lodge a ?30 million bid?
