Simple 1500 Series vol.060 - The Table Hockey Japan

A table hockey game, also called rod hockey game or board hockey, is a game for two players, derived from ice hockey. The game consists of a representation of a hockey rink; the players score goals by hitting a small puck into the opposing 'net' with cutout figures that represent hockey players. The figures are manipulated by rods below the 'ice': each one slides forward and back along its own narrow slot when the player pushes or pulls on the rod, or rotates (about a vertical axis) to shoot or stickhandle the puck when the player spins the rod. Though similar in concept to air hockey (commonly known as 'glide hockey'), table hockey games are more of a simulation of the sport of ice hockey while air hockey is more abstract.
