|WikiProject Board and table games||(Rated Stub-class, Low-importance)|
There's a paper and pencil game played in Poland called "football", which a foreign student taught everyone in my calss at school (whereupon it acquired the name "polish football". Anyone know about this? -- Tarquin
- Perhaps you are looking for Paper Soccer.
No definition expansion in years, no real content (the topic is self-defining), and the article name is not a standard game type (most references call these board games, albeit homemade. This stub is better done using Categories if the "paper and pencil" distinction needs to be kept. Objections? Support? -- Netoholic 15:38, 4 Jul 2004 (UTC)
- there seems to be a category for it already. I agree it's a stub, and I don't see what could be added to it. But we might as well leave it, you never know what might come up eventually. (History of pencil and paper games perhaps?) -- Tarquin 16:38, 4 Jul 2004 (UTC)
- I've never heard these referred to as "board games." And is the concept any more self-defining that "card game" or "board game," both of which nevertheless have pages? Stellmach 18:26, 12 August 2006 (UTC)
What does "equally well suited to playing as a board game" mean? Is it that it is fun to play? That it is portable? Easy to play? -Slash- 07:35, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
"usually without erasing"
I would be very surprised by definitions that allow erasing, because it seems to me that it makes many chess variants become paper-and-pencil games. (Draw the board and pieces, and to make a move, you erase the piece from its origin and draw it again at its destination.) Certainly a low-cost way of playing them, but they would seem to fit better in a different class. Double sharp (talk) 05:07, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
