This Penalty football card game was made by Pepys Games in Italy. The box consisted of a football pitch, a 52 card set, set of rules and a wooden ball.
Penalty is a beautiful card and board game from the 1960’s where a ball is passed around a pitch with the aim of scoring a goal. The movement of the ball is determined by movements printed on cards. The cards are played to enable the opponent to tackle to gain possession with the main aim to shoot at goal and score. All this is done by means of 52 cards.
Some sets came with a plastic pitch and others with a Paper pitch
It was marketed as the World Famous Football Game. The cards are not of particular players or teams, so they are not very collectible At least two editions of the game were produced in England by arrangement with Ernesto Scola, Milan.
A big thanks to Skooldays fan Peter Brayne, we are now able to upload the rules to this classic Football Card Game
