Hi Dan,

is it possible the game has different name? I remember my brother and I always played a game, which I didn't find in BGG until years later, when I stumbled accidently over it in a vintage games shop. It had a completely different name

I think you already found this:

Keep my fingers crossed for you

You can pictures to your personal gallery to help with ID.

If the game is indeed not in the BGG database then I'd encourage you to add it.

The closest and only reference I can find is this expired ebay posting for a Parker Brothers game called The Battle Game.

It looks very different from The Battle Game listed on BGG here.

I don't know how long old ebay posting stay up, so I'll just post a couple of the images here (hope that doesn't violate any forum rules).

That's what I thought of. I had one when I was a kid back in the '60s.

Looks like this game may have been the inspiration for POW! The Cannon Game for Boys.
