When new players start playing Cubic Football, they very quickly learn how to move block-players and how to do various kinds of kicks and passes. For this you do not need detailed instructions. Just start playing, switch on your imagination and the game goes on easily.
Moving block-players on the field
Blocks are moved manually. Take a block and move it the desired position after lifting him up slightly, without pulling a block on the tissue of the field.
When playing alone it is allowed to move block players freely along the field: both with and without a ball. You may recreate all the elements of a football match, including dribling, combinations, passes and kicks, even fouls.
When playing in pairs, movement of blocks during the attack is a little limited to avoid chaos, refer to Playing in Pairs section.
You may chold a block player in any convinient manner, and the best one is shown on our photos and videos. It is recommended to chold the block-player at his side, posterior and anterior facets.
Kicking a ball
A block-player kicks a toy ball with his anterior facet. To make a pass or a kick at a goal, do a short movement with your hand that is keeping a block.
In Cubic Football passes and shots may be various: strong and gentle, high and low, straight and curved.
It is easy to learn these kinds of kicks and give the ball the desired direction. Watch clips in our VideoGallery at this site and see all this.
Рух м`яча залежить від того, як по ньому був нанесений удар кубиком-гравцем. Важливими є сила удару, напрямок руху кубика. Досить легко навчитися різним видам ударів.
To produce a simple straight kick, simply kick the ball with a block-player. To send a high ball, move the lower end of the block upwards quickly.
When the playing surface is soft (e.g. the mattress of a sofa or a bed) you may press the block down a little, and then lift the lower edge of the block upwards, sending a high ball.
After high passes block-players may play with their head, i.e. upper facet.
Throw-ins are exercised as quick movement of fingers throwing the ball. When playing in pairs, throw-ins are kicked by a block from the touch-line.
