Crossbows and Catapults (1983)

A few weeks ago I took my son over to my mothers for a visit, well a visit and to go digging in the corners of the basement in search for some old treasures. While I was going through some old Burger King glasses my son was also poking around & I heard “dad what is that over there”. Oh just a few old games, nothing great.“I don’t think so dad look at this” he said as he pulled out the dusty half disintegrated box. It was my mine & my brothers game Crossbows and Catapults.

We had got this game for Christmas I think in 1984 from Santa and it was an instant “hit”. In the box where plastic cubes to be used as walls to fortify your castle. Each side had one crossbow & one catapult powered by rubber bands to shoot your battle caroms at each others fortress.

Now just pick, Barbarian or Viking and let the battle begin.

I grew up in western New York in the late 70's early-mid 80's playing with my Star Wars and Fisher Price adventure people. I have to say it was a good time.
