This is one of my favourite games as a child.
Would like to have to play with my 4 yr old now.
My one was lost as a child when I moved house (guess my mum was sick of finding the tiles behind the sofa etc).

I love these games. Great fun on the floor of the kitchen. Bomb the other player's castle and watch it fall and get the flag!!!

I bought (or rather my folks bought) this when lakeside made the original. My brother and I played this game for hours and hours. I also have the Dragon (in box) and I believe the set is still complete.

Everyone loves Crossbows & Catapults. My plastic catapults and crossbows are slowly wearing and falling apart from years of play. I bought the new version for my younger cousin but didn't like how the new blocks were shaped (they limit the ways you can build walls). Almost every game I've played has devolved from a turn based battle into a wild free for all.

I kept my original set in pretty good shape. I love this game and fortunately the new release got me the additional parts I needed. I play this all the time and often by myself. (against myself) still very fun.

This was my favorite game growing up and I remember having epic battles in the hallway with my brother. It was just as great watching my son do the same with a friend. Sadly some of the pieces are now broken from the strain by the elastic on the plastic pieces.

Rating based on how fun I thought this game was as a kid. Haven't played it in years! But I mean come on - you actually shoot and fling plastic projectiles against plastic walls using war machines! How cool ain't that?!

Is there anything better than setting up your castle, lining your towers with army men, and launching plastic discs at your opponent with so much force they leave a mark? The ultimate in childhood pleasure. Far more toy than game, but what a toy it is.

I had a lot fo fun with this game, just playing with my brother. Strangely enough the game balance depends on one thing and one thing alone. Quality of your rubber bands. Both the catapult and the crossbow (and the expansions) used rubber bands. There was quite an arms race around our household scavenging for the best rubber bands with which to equip our armies. Great fun

I had the Trojan horse expansion for the game, and while the horse worked well, the beast shield that the barbarians got was rather lacking.

Full of nostalgic yummy goodness. With all the expansions and a double set I can't think of anything else worth spending time sprawled out on the basement floor. It's similar to setting up action figures and throwing rocks to knock them down, but with rules.

Wonderful toy/game from my youth. Build your tower, and knock down your friend's fortress with discs propelled by rubber-band powered catapults and (essentially) floor slingshots. The components have been durable enough to last 20 years, but the box disintegrated long ago.

Particularly fun if you don't take turns: FREE FOR ALL!!! AAAGH!

Note: unless playing on carpet, consider restricting ballista use, as they are too powerful otherwise. We require all walls to be knocked down before allowing Ballistas for "flag sniping".

I suppose this would be considered a retro-rating. We used to really love this game. We'd set it up waaay further than the rules would suggest and have at it. Sometimes we'd even setup in the hallways for a ricochet effect. It's good fun blowing stuff up. We're older now, and getting on the floor isn't as easy as it used to be. Strategy over skill shots now. *sigh*
