Surprisingly this is a great variation on the original Crossbows & Catapults that was around when I was a Kid.

Outstanding. Always want to play, and expect this will never change. After all, it hasn't changed in 37 years. The beauty is its simplicity. If you think this is just a kid's game, take a walk down memory lane back to Kriegspiel: wargames fought with little soldiers and mechanical cannons that really fire to try to score hits on the enemy. This is admittedly a cartoony incarnation, but there's no reason why house rules couldn't make this a contender for an all time great game, at least if you have boys, which I do have one of.

This is an awesome re-issue I love this Toy Game! The new rules and accessories mainly new weapons add so much I have played with my cousin once in a while we have only played 4 times and I finally beat him once! But it is so addicting. I am playing this game along with the original crossbows and catapults game this battle has turned into a full out war!!!

This game is a hoot! What fun to shoot your crossbows and catapults across the table and knock down your opponent's troops and walls. I only wish that there were some sort of melee rules for the soldiers. The price for the expansion kits has gotten insane. I bought mine at Toys R Us on clearance and was very pleased. My kids love it. Everyone that has played it has had fun.

Childhood fantasy of catapults and destruction. This is still the best of the best, and worth setting up year after year for a round of destruction.

Good luck finding it, it's a collector's item now, but who cares? It's too fun NOT to play.

This is unlike most of the games I've rated here, as in this game players position two rubber-band-powered weapons (catapults, cannons, etc.) next to a castle, build some walls, position some little guys around the weapons, and then proceed to attempt to destroy the other person's guys, walls, and castle by shooting little round disks at them. This is a purely mechanical game, is not brain-burning at all, and is insanely fun. Try it next time you feel the urge to blow up some buildings.

This is so silly, but so much fun. Played at sometime around 2am with Nato and we were laughing and encouraging each other, but taking the aiming deadly seriously at the same time.

I bought this on a whim and am now expecting to play it surprisingly often.

Update: It is a lot of fun, but it also runs a little long, has some under-baked rules and really is a toy rather than a game.

Traded for £15 (which is a £1 profit!).

Hey look, it's that TOTALLY AWESOME catapult game from the 80s remade so that you don't have to pay $100 for it on eBay!

If you know what you're getting into -- a mindless dexterity game were you're flinging little discs at the opposing guys walls and guys with mini catapults -- then this game delivers and is a blast. Don't expect anything more out of it.

The expansion don't add a lot, but they do their job--expanding the base game.

This one is a no brainer for a kid-favorite. I've 'played' dozens of games with my son, and we've yet to actually 'play' an actual structured by-the-rules game.

Oh does this bring back memories!! My brother bought this for me this Christmas when he realized it was newly released. Everyone says the rules are different, but I don't remember the rules at all...I just remember the power of the crossbows, and bricks flinging through the air!! After a single play tonight, I am happily satisfied that this is the game I remember, except for it looking so much better!! House rules are a definite must, in my opinion. But, the game still plays fairly well by itself. So, if you've got a young crowd, the base rules still make for a fun game. This is the first time my youngest brother has seen and played C&C and he's already played it 4 times in 2 days. Needless to say, we will be playing this again

Better than Attactix because of the open endedness of it. It is an awesome toy. Knocking over lego castles rules. It is Crokinole (careful aim and clever banks) plus Loopin' Louie (precise finesse to land things right where you want).

Because it is so flexible, both in victory conditions and even in what type of rubber bands you put on your catapults, this really may be the best two-player dexterity game in existance. It's just good, toyish fun. Great for kids, great even for adults. Even better looking than the original, and the expansions are very good as well. The main drawback is the mess and the space required.

Got this for my Son, great game for kids. It is good clean fun and has been since the 80's. It is a toy, but a good toy and with the right people (read a sibling with Crossbow and Catapults rivalries going back 25 years ) it can be fun for adults as well.
I am partial to the old set but thats probably nostalgia. The new set does some things better, for example the walls are better at blocking since the attack disks are a little lighter an slightly larger. The looks of the game is much nicer than the 80's version. (i own both)

I'll rate this as a kids game. The only way that I have played it is with my 8 year old and my 4 year old son. I wouldn't mind playing it with another adult, but my rating is strictly as a kids game.

And as a kids game, it is fantastic. When I was ten, I would have absolutely loved Battleground. Seriously, flinging things across a battlefield--who wouldn't have liked it at ten years old? Heck, I have a blast with my kids, and I can easily see how it would be pretty strategic yet very goofy fun. How many games can claim that?

Very good fun, played with more as a toy than as an actual game. It's neat to set the figures up and demolish them with the totally random flicks I achieve with the catapults. I think as a game it would be very frustrating for an adult. I am pretty happy to play it with my sons though, hence the rating.

Man, what a blast from the past! When I stumbled upon a complete copy of this game in a thrift shop, it instantly sparked memories of playing the old-school version in my childhood and I knew I had to get it. And when I finally had a chance to play it with one of my brothers, it was a riot! The newer, more "miniatures-like" rules are rather hit and miss, with the concept being cool but the measurement aspect being a little fiddly. I feel like a couple of house rules are in order, but it's a fun game nonetheless. It's perhaps a little graphically grotesque for its target market (eg. the chief Orc holding a knight's head), but the components (especially the weapons!) are top notch. I just have to find another copy at a thrift shop so that I can have more bricks to build bigger castles. And I need to pull out one of those catapults the next time we play Torres... Game design: 4/5 Personal enjoyment: 3.5/5 Total: 7.5/10
