Following not very hotly on the heels of Pocketeers 'World Cup' in 1975, Peter Pan Playthings, that maker of games such as 'Test Match' and 'Frustration', came up with their Pop-o-Matic Football Game. 'Pop-O-Matic', you'll remember, was that cunningly useful system designed to stop little kiddies losing their dice when playing board games. Never more was it needed than in a game that could conceivably have been played in the back of a car or in the school playground.
All in all then, this was a rather basic and sadly unexciting return to the world of pocket football entertainment, but spare a thought to those poor schmucks that bought one of the other five Pop-o-Matic games in the range. Pocket Swimming, anyone?
