利茲市博物館以復古的蘇布特奧收藏品取得成績

幾代人都對彈指間的足球遊戲Subbuteo感到高興。當它享受着由鎖定引發的復甦時,一個古老的遊戲收藏品在利茲市得到了難得的機會。

但更多的傳統版本已經被利茲博物館復活,同時還有一些 "令人興奮的新內容",這些內容來自沃丁頓公司最後一位總經理維克多-沃森的個人檔案。

館長Kitty Ross說。"我們有這個夢幻般的1978年世界盃足球賽套裝,它絕對是最棒的東西之一,因為就像樂高一樣,你把它裝在小盒子裡,然後建立起你的收藏。

對於那些熱衷於獲得美麗的(微型)遊戲的完全沉浸式體驗的人來說,吉蒂挑選了1973年的黑膠唱片《Subbuteo Sound》。這張唱片被譽為提供了 "現實生活中國際足球的所有激動人心的聲音",旨在為比賽增添真實的氣氛。

凱蒂解釋說。"遊戲本身是一個非常簡單的概念,但它的受歡迎程度源於它如何挖掘出人們對運動的熱愛,以及它如何讓玩家發揮想象力,沉浸在比賽中。

"大量的配件和個性化服務證明了一些玩家和收藏家對這個遊戲的重視程度。

雖然這個遊戲的目的是友好和有趣的,但它有時也變得像真實的東西一樣具有競爭性,鐵杆玩家在蘇布迪奧世界盃上測試他們的靈巧性。1990年在羅馬舉行的國際賽事的商品--與足球世界盃同時進行--在利茲的收藏中占有重要地位。

凱蒂-羅斯說:"對於玩過並喜歡它的幾代人來說,蘇布迪奧已經成為一種經典,是世界上極少數能被立即識別的遊戲之一。


Generations of players have delighted in the finger-flicking football game Subbuteo. While it has enjoyed a resurgence sparked by lockdown, a vintage collection of the game is being given a rare run-out in Leeds.

But the more traditional versions have been resurrected by Leeds Museum, alongside some "exciting new additions" which have come from the personal archive of Victor Watson, the last managing director of Waddingtons.

Curator Kitty Ross said: "We have this fantastic 1978 World Cup Subbuteo set which must have absolutely been one of the top-notch things to get, because like Lego, you got it in little boxes and built up your collection.

For those keen to get the full immersive experience of the beautiful (miniature) game, Kitty picks out the 1973 vinyl album of The Subbuteo Sound. Billed as providing "all the thrilling sounds of real-life international football", it was designed to add an authentic atmosphere to games.

Kitty explains: "The game itself is a very simple concept, but its popularity stemmed from how it tapped into a love of sport and how it allowed players to use their imaginations and immerse themselves in their matches.

"The huge array of accessories and personalisation which were made available were testament to how seriously some players and collectors took the game too."

While the game was intended to be friendly and fun, it has at times become as competitive as the real thing with hardcore players testing their dexterity in the Subbuteo World Cup. Merchandise from the international event staged in Rome in 1990 - which coincided with football's World Cup - features in the Leeds collection.

Kitty Ross says: "For the generations who have played and enjoyed it, Subbuteo has become something of a cult classic and is one of a very select number of games which is instantly recognisable around the world.
