Nice video john! . I own this game. Bought it back in ish. Still have it. Still works. The kids loved it growing up. They knew my wrath if they ever left the batteries in the tower. D batteries my son did that once but it was not too long and the battery acid was removed. Everything but one corner of the game box is in very good condition. The corner was ripped. Easy to do since it never sits that square on it. The rest of the game is in excellent condition. I believe if i remember correctly the it came with an extra light bulb. Do you remember if yours came with an extra light bulb john? I also own electronic stratego as well. Missing one mine from that game. Grrrr
Am i the only one here who is under the age of ?
Wow, i remember this, i never played it. But i had it as a kid.
Clearly worth. . Disgusting person who put it up for that price, thankfully nobody will pay it.
The definition of throw back
This game is on my list of things to get one day. I enjoy the online version
Man i loved this game. I don t remember if my parents already had it or got the year i remember playing it, which was, all i know is that i played the crap out of it till it broke. Now i m going to have to see if i can get one on ebay.
I love fantasy stuff i wish i had this game but now you can get it free on the app store yay i am so pumped to try this ouuuuuuuuuuut! ! !
The toy is dumped and emulated proper in the mame project. If you have the game board and pieces, you need never worry about having a working toy and two d size batteries again, heh. I contributed digitized artwork and working layout for the emulator as part of its documentation http www. Mameworld. Info ubbthreads showthreaded. Php? Number
I bought one on ebay many years ago. My friend still has his original. The motor in the tower was seized on mine since it hadn t been used in a long time. I took it apart and turned the gear with my finger could also use sewing machine oil and it works. Then i did that with kenner star wars vehicles v sfx motors i put vids up
My mom bought this for my dad back in presumably. We still regularly play this as a family. A few flags have broken over the course of time, but everything works mechanically as it should. Many many hours of play have occurred! It s always highly entertaining to play the game when a battery is nearly dead. It starts to kindof forget what it s doing and generally screws over player hard lol.
Oh! This took me back in time i played this game as a kid and loved it! Thanks! ! !
I loved this game so much. I spent far too many hours just playing with the tower myself in bed with just the tower. I d just imagine my position and scenario etc. I know i still have it somewhere. Very psyched there s an app version droid tower downloading now to check out. Thanks for the nostalgia!
One of my favorite games as a child! ! ! !
I used to love playing this game with my brother when i was younger. So many wonderful memories. Thanks for sharing.
What memories! Those sound effects completely brought me back to my childhood
For anyone wanting to play this again, there is an app available for apple phones and i pads. You can either run the app to substitute for the tower if you have the board or you can play the entire game with the board on the screen up to players. It evens has the motorized sound of the tower turning gears to light up the action. Has all the original gameplay including difficulty levels. Can t wait to play with some friends. Played a couple times as all four players and it brought back a lot of great memories of playing this with my friends constantly as kids. Definitely beats spending for an original.
That thing is actually pretty neat for its time. I mean it predates dragon quest by years and ultima and wizardry had only just came out that year.
Holy crap. This thing sells for on amazon now. I always wanted it when i was a kid.
