Almost the entire Fishlabs team had been eagerly awaiting this moment for weeks and even months. And yesterday it had finally happened. At round about 10 o’clock in the morning we got a call from the transport company, telling us that a pretty big package had just been delivered to the foyer of our office building. Weighing more than hundred kilograms and measuring about two-and-a-half square meters, this giant cardbox monster contained a brand-new and feverishly anticipated addition to the Fishlabs team: our very own foosball table! We already had one in the old office in Hamburg/Winterhude, but according to those daring (or desperate) enough to give it a try, that older table wasn’t exactly a quality product. The new one, however, is a high-class, pro-quality Leonhart table that leaves nothing to be desired. So there’s a good chance that quite a few Fishlabs employees will stay a few hours longer at the office from now on and score a couple of goals after work[full]
When it comes to the table’s design, we have not only chosen white and blue players in order to represent the Fishlabs CI as closely as possible, but we have also branded all four sides of the table with our iconic anglerfish and the “Blauer Fisch” logo. For those of you who haven’t heard it yet, the “Blauer Fisch” (which is German for “Blue Fish”) is an un-official office party that we’re having on the last Thursday of the month. There, we usually have a couple of beers, play a couple of rounds of FIFA 13 or Soul Calibur V on the Xbox 360 and generally have a good and relaxed time together. And from now on we’ll surely also be playing quite a lot of foosball at the “Blauer Fisch” as well.
All in all, the production and delivery of the customized Fishlabs table took about four weeks and it was more than worth the wait! We’ve already build it up yesterday evening after work and played a couple of matches. It’s helluva good fun and the table plays absolutely smoothly. So here’s to a lot of hard-fought foosball matches in Fishlabs office. Cheers!
BTW: The colours of the players do not only resemble our own Fishlabs colours, but they also match those of my favourite soccer club, the Hamburger Sport Verein. What club do you cheer for and what colours would you have chosen for the players? Let us know in the comments!
