Hello,

My brother had a game that we played in the mid to late 80s (for all I know it could be older). It was collectible not in the same way as Magic the Gathering or any similar game is, you collected characters, for instance I remember him having a skeleton, ogre, Arabesque Warrior etc.

My memory of it is a little foggy and I fear I may be adding details that didn't exist, but i'll try to explain.

If I remember correctly you would see an image of your opponent's previous move, so part of the strategy is based on that,
for example if you perform some overhead bash maneuver you cannot do a subsequent overhead move.. if that makes any sense?

Part of me thinks there were booklets that came with your character and your moves, tied to a choose your own adventurey mechanic within the booklet.

Hopefully this makes enough sense to someone where they remember what I"m talking about.

Oh geez I also hope this is an appropriate forum to be asking this question.

Thanks in advance!

I would gather it's difficult to get one's hands on it now?

There are dozens of users with copies for trade (some of whom might consider selling outright if approacked nicely.)

Plenty to be had on eBay, too.

Or direct from the publisher!

Welcome to BGG, and enjoy the nostalgia . . .
