I still remember the commercial.

"The Vikings and the Barbarians! We do battle this day...with Crossbows and Catapults!"

Now I know you can go on YouTube and watch it in all its glorious 80's cheesiness but it always seemed more epic in my memory.

Anyway, after seeing the commercial, I wanted this game/toy more than anything else and I asked anyone remotely related to me if I could have it. Maybe now or for my birthday, Christmas, Halloween, WHENEVER I didn't care, I just knew I wanted it.

Of course my Dad, upon hearing of my plight, offered up these encouraging words.

"Ah, Michael, that crap ain't nothing but cheap, plastic junk that you'll break or lose as soon as you get home with it and besides, you don't play with half your toys you got and I'm not buying this!"

Brimming with newfound confidence, I proceeded to ask Mom who said

"Ask your Father"

So naturally I went to the only people left who were my best chance of ever getting my wonderful box of cheap, plastic junk...

My Grandparents.

AKA Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

I can't remember if it was them or someone else but I finally got the base set (on Christmas, I think) and wow, was it glorious. I read the rules and set it up and, just for fun, asked Dad if he wanted to play.

I ended up just playing with the pieces as if it was only a toy. None of my childhood friends lived close enough to come over so I "solo'ed" the game a lot. But I didn't care, I had fun launching those little disks at the plastic walls and imagining...

Huge Catapults and giant Crossbows hurling their deadly cargo towards the enemy tower while brave Vikings and Barbarians did battle that day...

Then I heard about the expansions.

Okay, imagine a physics engine based game, like a 3D Angry Birds storming the castle with ballistas. Lots of expansions, maybe a quest mode? Is there anything like this already on the app store? Seems like a natural to me.

Cool looking battle game from the 80s. Still need to inventory.

$2.99 at the Littleton Savers in Denver.

EDIT: Are these really selling for $100-$150 on eBay?... blush

The original! In terrific condition, the cardboard buildings, stickers, and instructions are all still sealed and unpunched.

Missing one red disk and three brown warriors - otherwise complete and shiny!

Five dollars at a flea market was an easy decision. No need to haggle!

But...this copy is by Tomy (it's the Master Battle set). Not Lakeside...

OMG, I cannot WAIT to get this out with my 5-year-old son. I just have to find it at my mom's house. I played this game all the time. Such a great tactical dexterity game. Just make sure we stick to standard single stretched rubber bands on the crossbows. It gets dangerous with thick triple wound bands.

I also picked up 4 hanging bags with pieces from this game in them.

I need to inventory to see how incomplete it is, but should still be able to make a small profit.

4 bags at 1.99 each so $7.96 at GW

Also found a huge bag of C&C for $3.99. Not sure of completeness but I have lots of random parts. Never found the box for this. Always in a bag. Also LC VV.

More toys than a game? No matter which, there was plenty of times playing this on the floor in a corridor, a perfect setting where the bits could not get lost. The make and break is that you get to build your own fortress, which leads to that "the next time..."-moment which makes you play it straight away yet again.

Found of copy of this at GW. It was $2.99.

Missing two of the lighter colored blocks, one red disc and one flag in each color (red and blue). Other than the box, it is in good shape.

Another kinetic entry, Crossbows and Catapults might well be called more of a toy than a game--but it provided a rich fantasy atmosphere and the potential for percussive interactions.

There has been a bag full of this game hanging around for awhile, I haven't picked it up because I don't have any of this version but, it was 25% off so.. $3

On a sad note... I was looking at some random Craigslist ads and.. I noticed that there was a auction 6 days ago and the first picture showed Dune with a bunch of lesser games.. cry

Complete, all components in working order. A few lost stickers. Box has some shelf wear and slight dishing but is in pretty good shape. There is also a small bit of old tape that someone stuck to the box.
English Lakeside edition as pictured.

All of my games come from a smoke free home.

Free shipping to Continental US or first $10 anywhere else.

Decent condition considering its age. The game is complete and includes the Crossbows and Catapults: Trojan Horse and Battle Shield expansion. The box has never been sturdy, and has been taped on the corners. The castle mats have some minor splits. One of the catapults is cracked but useable, and the Battle Shield has a few cracks in it. The instruction manual is missing its cover but is otherwise fine.

I will post some photos soon.

Reserve: $20

Updated with photos. I can post more if requested.
