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!!)
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!
