Gameplay

Foosball is much like a tabletop game of soccer with slightly different rules. Players each have player pieces on rods that spin to hit the foosball. The goal is to hit the ball into the other player's goal. First player to 10 wins, but the winner must win by two. Foosball is generally an individual sport. Such teams in Freedemian Foosball operate like tennis teams, with different players playing each other. However, there is team foosball, with longer tables and room for at least 2 or 3 players on each side of the table. These teams are rarer in Freedemia, although they do exist in a less professional fashion.
