Back in 1983, my brother got Crossbows & Catapults for Christmas - the following year he asked for an expansion set too - so that clearly shows it's success!!! He would have been 6 & I was 11.

The idea is you use the bricks to create defenses and a fortress to protect your king & flag from attack. Each of you take it in turns to fire disks (soldiers) at your enemies' defenses, by using the crossbows and catapults supplied.

It really is a good fun game of skill (with a bit of chance too!) - we had great fun back in the 80s & now my 10 year old son has just as much fun too!

Can thoroughly recommend this game - would make an excellent addition to any boy's collection of boardgames! My parents have told me that theyve found the old sets up in their loft, so will be bringing it down for their grandson at christmas - he will be delighted (especially as these are now collectors items!!)

Bought this from the Entertainer on a whim, got it home and within 20 minutes of set up (including quick read of easy instructions), myself and my 6 and a half year old son were firing disks, measuring our moves with a ruler and generally having a good old fashioned battle! It felt a bit like Christmas if I'm honest! Might buy the add on pack from Amazon related toy store next.

This set (from MagicShop2) arrived from Poland. The box, instructions and game rules are in Polish but photocopied English instructions were included. The set was factory-sealed as described by the seller, and although the outer packaging looked a little old and battered, the pieces inside are in perfect working order. The weapons are elastic powered, and plenty of spare elastic bands are supplied in the box.

Set-up was simple; my 10 year old was able to assemble the pieces and elastic bands on his own. I'd recommend a large floor-space (and a tidy bedroom!) to play this game as there are a large number of pieces involved, and the disc projectiles can go about 4 to 5 feet.

My two boys (the younger is 8) were introduced to Battleground by a friend, and are now engrossed in their first game with their own set. It looks like fun and it's a welcome change from video games and TV!

Both grandsons love this and spend hours putting the defences into place and the armies. The shooting at each others castle gives a lot of enjoyment and if they can destroy granddad's castle that is the ulitimate

I bought this game plus the extension kit for my grandsons 7th birthday and it was a huge hit. I hadn't seen this game for years, believing it to be obselete so I was delighted to find it on Amazon. I would recommend this game to anyone wanting an alternative to the usual computer games, it arrived from the supplier promptly, well wrapped and with no damage, I would definately use this supplier again and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
