Former professional footballers are to launch the football edition of their interactive sports board game, Who’s Got Ron.
A game that is fun for the expert to the novice, the beauty being that the most successful Premier League managers could lose to a ten-year old child with zero interest in football. The random nature of the game means that both have an equal chance to win.
Designed for all the family or a group of friends, Who’s Got Ron is the game where live football dictates the course of the game. The chance to win or lose is solely dependent on what happens live on the pitch and which player is holding Ron. Every twist and turn of the match, from the routine; such as throw-ins, corners, free-kicks and offsides to the less frequent occurrences of red cards, missed penalties and physio involvement to the unthinkable; such as flood-light failure and even streakers, the game has it covered.
It does not matter whether the game is a boring 0-0 draw or 5-4 thriller as the various actions outlined above means that the game is constantly building its pot and Ron is constantly being moved from player to player.
The creators of the game are former Tottenham Hostpur, Brighton and Gillingham centre half Guy Butters and former Portsmouth young professional Mark Thompson. They developed the idea whilst watching one of the aforementioned boring 0-0 draws.
