Game Modes

Swiss System

The Swiss System is probably the most popular and fairest game mode in foosball. In principle every team is up against every team, but the opponents are drawn in a way so that the teams preferably play against teams with matching strenghts.

Perfect for big tournaments if Round Robin can’t be played.


Also called Fair4All and is a single-player mode. Each player gets a randomly assigned partner and plays against another random team. The attempt ist that every player is playing once with each other. With every won game the winning team gets points and they are fighting for the position in the table. Because its possible to add and remove player at any time, the mode perfect for a casual foosball evening with open end.

A elimination round with fixed teams can be started at any time.

Round Robin

The classic mode at foosball tournaments. The teams are divided into groups and each team plays each other the same group. if all teams are assigned to the same group, every team is playing against each other. if you aren’t yet exhausted after that you can start another round.

A elimination round which is set according to the placement in the group, can be started at any time.

Last (Wo)Man Standing

As with MonsterDYP every player is playing for themselves. However it is not played for points, but for survival. Before the game starts, each player gets a fixes amount of lives that must be defended. For this purpose, each round a new teammate is computed and you compete with another team. The loser loses a life.

Once a player has no lives left, he is out to the tournament. At the end, the last three players are playing one on one.

Again, any time players can be added or removed.

Single Rounds

The round system is a shorter form of round robin. Each team is playing every round against another team from the same group. You can play as many rounds as you like. When all players have played against everyone from the same group, it starts over.

Again, a elimination round which is set according to the placement in the group, can be started at any time.


Whist is a single player mode. Here all players exactly compete one time with each other players and exactly two times against each of the others. This mode can only be played with 4n and 4n+1. That’s 4, 5, 8, 9, 12, 13, ..., 101. (yes, we’re nerds!)

Perfect for smaller groups that otherwise tend to argue about the drawing of teams.
