My neighbor up the street had this game, Battling Tops by Ideal, and I remember us playing it for hours. Spin the tops with all the speed you can muster and knock the opponents' tops from the ring. My copy has five complete tops and the disk for the sixth. My arena is in green which seems to be extremely rare (the only one I've ever seen). Item number 2340-8 dated 1968, the game was re-issued numerous times including the 1977 Spaceships version shown below.
The game has been reissued by Mattel and is available through Amazon.com if you can't find it locally. Other games in my collection that use tops: Tornado Bowl, also by Ideal.
