When I was young in the 1960s, a friend had the following game (my memory is rusty so take this description with a grain of salt). It was a small square pegboard, with two sets of pegs (silver and gold), one for him and one for me. The interesting part: his job was defense (to protect the center) and my job was offense (to get to the center). I forget the moves, but somehow we could take each other's pegs until someone won.
Can anyone identify this game?

    This sounds something like Hnefatafl, but this is not the appropriate place for questions like this; I've moved the question to Board & Card Games Stack Exchange.

Looks like it's Breakthru.

Breakthru is a modern game based on historic Tafl games, released in 1965.

    Can you provide some more information about the game and why you think it was this?

  • I remember the defense pieces forming a circle around the center. Plus the game came out in the mid-60s which is when I played it.
