About

The tactics is an innovative foosball table. In this product, everything has been rethought to make your children not only simple players, but also real strategists. Here are the 5 main innovations which have been incorporated:

 1) New corner system : when the ball goes to the corner, it is directly forwarded to the centre faced to the goal.

 2) The players are adjustable to the best position to fit the strategy you prefer.

 3) 3 players per team have a specialty. (foot angled to left shot, right shot or lob shot)

 4) The player design has been redrawn in a funnier way.

 5) The LED ball lights up during the game. Thanks to the LED light detecting system, goals light up when the LED ball crosses the line.

 As a result, the game's configurations are nearly unlimited for your children. When the standard compositions 4-3-3, 4-4-2 or 2-5-3 will be mastered by them, they will be able to invent their own. The corner system and the 3 specialist players will give them new ideas for strategies to defeat their opponents.

  • Metal rod shaped (thickness 1.3 cm).
  • Main structure in MDF and PVC (no distortion caused by wear contrary to wood construction).
  • Players, goals and scorers made by ABS plastic injection.
  • Washers soften impact and improve game comfort. 
  • Skip-proof handles.
  • Ball return system.
  • Steel screws.

 Based in HK for 10 years, Clement and Sabrina started working in a toy company 6 years ago. Then, they decided to found their own trading company in the game table market. After several years in the business, they realized that all the products currently on the market were much too similar. So they decided to develop an original product, far different from any item available today. Their main idea was to innovate with a customizable foosball table, which can be adapted to the strategy of the player! This is where the Tactics story began.

 As you can see, since January 2013, we have done a huge amount of work. We overcame the main problems concerning the clip players, the material used and the quality control in order to receive the certificate of compliance. We invested a lot of money in the development of the prototype, the mould opening and the product certification.

Today, our product is finalized and our suppliers are ready to start production at the end of this campaign.

However, to put the product into your hands, we need your help. Choose the reward you prefer or pre-select our product.

Thank you.

Risks and challenges

We have worked on this project since January 2013. We faced and overcame many obstacles since the beginning. We tried to anticipate any problems we could meet on the way to marketing our product. Today our product is ready for production. However, running this kind a project is a daily adventure and it will never be possible to forecast the unpredictable.

Production
After 3 months of sourcing and factory visits, we have finally selected the most ideal for us. They have been manufacturing foosball tables for years and are able to incorporate our innovations. We have already invested a lot of money in the mould opening. During the manufacturing process, it is also important to take into account the risk of delay.

Quality
When you deal with toys, the quality is extremely important to marketing the product. Before starting the Kickstarter campaign, we have already completed all the requirements that will allow us to market our product in Europe and in the USA. Our quality assurance staff in China will follow the production from the beginning to the end.

Supply Chain
Shipping all the reward to the Kickstarter backers is a real challenge since you are all spread over the world. Thanks to the experience of our team in this area, we have calculated all the cost we will have to bear when sending you your reward. In order to respect our deadline of delivery, we have decided to add month in order to have the time to resolve any unforeseen problems.
