Hello everyone, dug these up a few days ago and I can't seem to find anything about them. What I do remember was that it was a 3D game shaped like a hill and I think played similar to parcheesi. You started your army of either yellow, blue, red or green soldiers on one side of the hill and ultimately try to make it to the opposite side.

In a long shot, I'm also feeling nostalgic about trying to remember a 3D surfing/climbing board game. If I recall correctly, the goal was to move up towards the top of the board and occasionally if rolled/spun on, a clear silicone "slime" (every parents favorite accessory in the 90s) was poured from the top and would reset those caught in its wake.

I like to think these were both in the mid 80s/90s, I know the soldier game is real, but I may be hallucinating the surfing one, I know that most games and toys that used the slime/ooze didn't last long.

Thank you in advance for any help!

The miniatures look similar to those used in Electronic Battle Cry!.

Was the "slime" game Slime Monster Game?

Hi Herb, no I've looked at that game and I think the one I'm picturing is meant to to simulate a wave crashing down on you or a "slime" avalanche. The "Slime Monster" game comes up as the main response to any search with slime in it. Ironically, you could do a search for Electronic Battle Cry and only BGG has any real information on it.

Like I said before, I could be imagining the game with the slime, but maybe someone else has heard of something similar. Thanks for the response though!

Not with Slime, but with the concept of "climbing up" and being swept by something from the top.

Fireball Island

Randomly came across this searching around. The surfer climbing game is called "Wipe Out"
