The Baby foot or Babyfoot (France / Quebec), also called Kicker (Belgium) or Table football (Switzerland) is a game of simulation of football. This game is played on a table usually by two people who oppose in two teams either two players alone or two players per team (if the baby foot has more than 4 branches).
The table football consists of a table (representing the soccer field), above and across which move eight bars which support the eleven figurines of each team (representing the players). Each side can thus operate four bars:
A bar supporting three fronts (it faces opposing defenders);
A bar supporting five halfbacks corresponding to the midfielders (it faces the half opponents);
A bar supporting two defenders (it faces opposing fronts);
A bar supporting the goalkeeper
At each end of the board, the goal is sheltered by a cage, behind which is fixed the abacus used for the counting of the points. The ball is usually made of plastic.
