Yeah, we had ’em.
We’d split them up, Germans vs. Allies, set them up in the dirt, then each of us would shoot rubber bands at the opponent’s “army.” If the rubber band knocked over a soldier, he was taken off of the battlefield as KIA.
If you shot a rubber band off your thumb, hit or miss, it became part of your opponent’s arsenal. If you were a good shot but too aggressive, you might run out of rubberband ammo and lose the battle. Strategy & Tactics for 8 year old boys.

Recently I re-ran into Unfinished Rambler who linked to the Hero Factory and I just had to play: went with my instincts, entered my super powers honestly and was rewarded with that lame-o title. The Hero Factory is kinda like Wikipedia on steroids… 80% accurate, but 20% gets mixed in with the leftover chili.
I’ll accept my alter-ego orange afro image with a kickass flame thrower: too hot to handle, and too cold to hold. Execute Mode Enabled.
