The Opus: Table Soccer in Your Face

Luxury Games: The Eleven Forty Company has applied a most innovative twist to the game of table soccer with the Opus. Now it is a personal affair. Imagine having a game table with all eight rows of players' having recognizable faces, such as friends, family members, or, if you prefer, foes.

Eleven Forty has developed a patent-pending process it calls Doppelganger Technology. With a clear photograph of a person's face, an exact 3-D miniature of it can be reproduced. For some additional fun or laughs, a face can be altered as well. Hair could be added or removed; a nose or the ears could be made smaller or larger; a face also could be made to appear younger or older too. I wonder if lads could be made to look more like lasses?

The painstakingly meticulous detail applied to the Opus is quite impressive. The handcrafted tables are made of etched glass, stainless steel, and either ash, mahogany, oak, or walnut. There are viewable bubble levels to ensure the game table is level. The frosted-glass surface of the field is lit from the underside. The telescopic rods are engineered to move flawlessly. The ergonomically perfect grip handles on the rods are offered in a metal, a wood, or a leather finish. Players' bodies are solid-cast aluminum and are hand painted to match the team uniforms as selected by the owner. Concealed glove boxes are at each end of the table to store extra game pieces.

This game has balls too. There are three sets of differently weighted balls to control the speed of the game. Eleven Forty can deliver the Opus to any address worldwide, and most orders are fulfilled within 16 weeks.

Outside of the U.S., the name of the game is table football or foosball instead of table soccer. Categorizations aside, the Opus is an excellently crafted game table that allows owners great leeway in having some fun with their friends. Play nice.
