#25 – Crossbows and Catapults (Top 25 Favorite Vintage Toys)

To be honest, I think my desire to like this game exceeds my actual likeability.  I mean, it seems great – using crossbows and catapults and plastic discs to knock down plastic brick kingdoms; who could not like that?   It was fun. If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be on this list.  But I remember it took more time to set up than to play.  Speaking of playing, were there any rules to this game? I just remember shooting at your opponent’s kingdom.  After that, who cares?   But outposts and walls fell quickly; too quickly.

I also remember some cool accessories that were sold separately. A battering-ram, for instance.  I remember asking for that one Christmas and my dad mistakenly got me a “battle ram” from some other toy set.
