The IDEAS Table Football LEGO Set 21337 sounds like a simple premise, to begin with. The idea of building a novelty replica table football set sounds fun for a rainy afternoon. But, when you take a closer look at the mechanics and players, you find that there is a whole lot more on offer.
Build A Working Football Table Game With Keen Minifigure Players
There are two standout features of this table football LEGO set for adults. The first is the fact that it actually functions as a table game. It might end up being a little clunkier than some authentic football tables, and you only have enough poles for a 5-a-side game, but you can still play. There is a red team and a blue team, which is highlighted by the stripes on the retro design of the table and the scoring system above the goal. A nice added feature here is the ability to play for a LEGO model trophy, which sits proudly in the separate seating area for the teams. This leads to another fun aspect of this set.
Normally with table football sets, you have a series of simple molded figures permanently stuck to the poles. Not here, as there are little seats on the poles that allow for interchangeable players. This means you can work with a full team of complete posable minifigures and make substitutions as needed. Those subs can sit in the tiered seating and cheer the team on. With 22 figures of different races and a range of accompanying hair pieces, it is really easy to customize your set and get the team you want.
Everyone Can Have Fun Trying To Win The LEGO Football League
The choice to focus on these minifigure players helps give this cool LEGO set greater long-term appeal. You get the fun of being able to build the table in full working order, with 2339 pieces available. The final 41cm wide table sits 15cm tall, so it is the ideal size for display or playtime, without disrupting play or getting in the way. But, the use of figures allows for a lot more creativity in compiling a league of LEGO football players. Therefore the IDEAS Table Football LEGO Set 21337 has the potential to engage players of all ages.
