Last month I won a copy of Crossbows & Catapults for just $18.08 (plus $15 shipping) - I still can't believe it.



In think it was 87 that my mom bought me a set of Crossbows & Catapults for my birthday - it was my gateway game to the board game addiction I now have - and all these years later I found it on ebay and bought it for my own birthday.

I had been watching copies for years and never saw one in good shape go for under $100. I guess I got lucky. The box is a little bit beat, and the rulebook is wrinkled, but it's only missing a carom and a viking figure; there's is a broken crossbow, but other than that all of the components are in great shape, and even all of the stickers are still stuck to the caroms/flags/castle doors.

Anyway, over a month later and I'm still excited by this and wanted to share my excitement with you guys.

Nice Ebay win! That has to be close to the original price back in the day!

It's just great to have it again. This and Fireball Island were THE games of my childhood (until HeroQuest came along).

Just having the box in my hands brought back tons of memories!

Wow - I just checked eBay and the cost(s) are outrageous. Great find! I wish I still had my old game…I actually found a couple of the flags in my old lego stuff while playing with my daughter; which prompted me to start doing some searching.
