    Does anyone play foosball? If you do, do you play in any tournaments? I'm just curious as to how big foosball is in the Mac community.

    I assume "foosball" was a typo, and not some new american sport. Which 'football' do you mean? American 'pansy' Football, or the european flavour? :D

    When i was at college (a-levels), i played for the football team. I also played on the team that my summer-work place put together last summer. I play defence, out on the right.

    I sure do

    I was lucky enough to grow up with one from quite an early age. I've gone without it for about two years now sence my brother took it up to his appartment at college. But as it turns out he's done and soon to move out and i just rented a house so will be picking it up from him in the near future (perhaps tonight). i'm interested in getting replacement men too if anybody knows a good place online. the only problem is the table seems to be quite a mystery with no brand name on it. I've wanted to play in the tournaments at my college but all three ended up being early saturday morning. I've only played sparingly sence my table has been gone but i'm still quite good. i guess its kind of like riding a bike

    You sure it wasn't left...left out? ;)

    Yea, I love football. My dad played semi-pro for the chargers, and was QB for the Wolverines in the Orange Bowl (74-76)

    As for foosball, well, that sucks. I really don't find the skill involved....

    BritBoy, I do mean foosball, aka Table Soccer.

    Oddfuzz, there are many places online where you can get replacement men. www.foosballstore.com sells them. Their site is a little messed up right now, but they usually have the best prices.

    MacAztec, there's plenty of skill involved in foosball. You should check out a tournament some time. There are some awesome foosball players out there.

    hmm...I pretty much suck...:D

    I'm not into it that much to be honest...pool neither...

    I actually prefer not to spend time in a bar like that...I'd rather be at my favorite spot sitting on the porch having a drink or in a dance club... ;)

    Yeah. I read what macaztek had written, and figured that perhaps there was such a thing as 'foosball'. Did a quick google search, and found www.foosball.com, and realised what it was. I've played it loads before, but never heard it called that.

    You're right about the skill though. Some of these german guys are pretty much unbeatable! Luck has a little bit to play in it, but skill determines the outcome over a best-of-10 match.

    I would tend to agree. Neither "flavour" is pansy, in my opinion.

    Britboy,

    I know this isn't the right place for this, but I noticed that, in a different post, you were having trouble setting up Q3A. Did you ever get it figured out? I can't get it working in OS X. I posted my problem in the game forum.

    No, i never did get it working. In about a weeks' time i'm planning one doing a low-level pass on my hard drive. I've been having a few quirks over the past few weeks, and disk utilities/a normal reinstall haven't solved them. I'll try to remember to get back to you on it after then.

    Is there a user guide for installing Q3A under OS X?

    Rugby is pretty bad-ass.
