For those with a proper respect for the grand and glorious mysteries of Foosball, this miniature version for tabletop, desk, or travel is cause for celebration. Five inches from end-to-end, this plastic game has legs that snap into position and a storage compartment for a couple of tiny white balls. (You only need one for the game; the other is a spare.) Drop a ball through one of the side pockets and two players whack at it by turning bars holding stolid little men in permanent kicking stances. The bars turn just fine (there is one fewer for each player than in the full-size original), but they don't require wrist action so much as dexterity between thumb and forefinger. --Tom Keogh
