World club league
Microstars figures enable you to play World Club League, a football based tabletop game. Each Microstars model has five skills based on a passing, tackling, dribbling, crossing, and shooting rating. Goalkeepers have save left and save right rating. Skills are rated by a number between one and five.
The rarity of players was based on the quality of their skills ratings. Rareness is indicated by the colours of the model's base. Bases come in green, red, blue, white, silver and gold, with green being the most common and gold being the rarest and most skilled. As the Microstars 3 player packs introduced a free gold model with every pack, the rarity of certain gold players significantly decreased.
As well as footballer figurines, Microstars have produced a range of stands and model stadiums. A microdome stadium enables the playing of World Club League game.
