Crash Tackle - The Rugby Board Game (BOXED GAME)

A strategy based rugby board game that brings all the fast paced action of rugby to your tabletop!




You break down the blind side and tear through the defence. You're out in the clear. Almost. The only thing standing between you and international rugby glory is 120kg's of bone crunching muscle. You've got the pace, but have you got the guts?

This is the action packed world of rugby board games and Crash Tackle is the world leader!

Crash Tackle is the sports board game that combines all the action and strategy of real international rugby union into a challenging and realistic rugby game simulation. Crash Tackle lets you take control of the toughest teams in the world and feel what it's like to be the best!

Pound your opponents with fearless forward drives, feed the ball to your ever elusive backs, chip n' chase, or play it safe and kick for touch. Whatever your rugby tactics or game plan Crash Tackle lets you decide when to Make the breaks, force the errors, and take your chances!

Crash Tackle is the rugby union board game that brings all the fast paced heart pumping action of real rugby right to your table top!

Crash Tackle is a strategy based sports board game that is played by two 'Coaches' who must manoeuvre their team of 15 players around the field in a battle of wits, strategy and luck. Crash Tackle authentically mirrors the infinite variety of on-field rugby situations where the right moves bring points, but errors of judgment are punished!

Yet it appeals equally to novice and expert, as a family game that can be enjoyed as much by beginners as by the seasoned rugby union enthusiast.

What makes Crash Tackle so unique?

Well, primarily it is the level of control and involvement that the player or "coach" has in the game. Unlike the many on-line fantasy rugby simulations and sports games where a team is constructed and the results of matches are calculated based on team statistics, Crash Tackle allows the coach to make decisions for each player and the rugby team as a whole - and all in response to his opponents moves. This is a level of control that even rugby console games, despite the obvious attractions of arcade game-play, cannot offer.

Crash Tackle is rather like chess for rugby enthusiasts, with a startling degree of realism. Rugby players and fans are constantly surprised by the parallels that can be drawn between Crash Tackle and the sport of rugby union itself.
