When I was much younger I played a midieval based board game with a portal in the middle and towers I think around the perimeter. I remember that once someone entered the portal in the middle there was a limited time to get to the center before the entire board flipped over around this portal. For the life of me I cannot remember the board game title or who even made it. The year would be 1993-1995. I know this isn't much to go on. I have searched this forum for keywords and I have spoken to several board game business employees and they seem to be either to young to know or they just don't know.

Am I crazy? Can you Gurus help me?

Also, if it helps I believe that the game had some plastic insert features similar to the fashion that were in life. They fit into the board after unfolding and assembling. I know that the board was very large in size too. Thanks for investigating with me!

I think you are right and I think I am understanding better now. This is most definitely the game, but I think I am remembering some of the features of another game that we played that had the towers.

Wow that was quick! Thank you so much! I'm guessing that this is a rare game?

I don't know how rare it is. You have a limited amount of time before the board flips over, that is a pretty rare game mechanic, for sure. This is the only game I know of that has it.
