It won the prestigious Australian Toy Association’s Game of the Year in 2022, as well as the Dice Tower (USA) and Imagination Gaming (UK) Seals of Approval. The game allows players to build their castles out of plastic bricks, place their troops, load the catapults, and use cunning tactics to knock down their opponents’ troops with rubber boulders. The game raised over $1 million USD through crowdfunding and is currently available in 27 languages and 29 countries worldwide.
The animated series follows two feuding families, the Cunningfields and the Chauforts, who use catapults and conspiracies to conquer each other and rule the Kingdom of Catapultia. Despite their parents’ inability to get along, the next generation of Cunningfields and Chauforts have a plan to bring peace to their warring families.
