The very Knight games the crossbowmen renewed on October 28 the same year. Since then, knights' tournament has been held more than 150 times in Rab, abroad and in other Croatian cities. The Association includes 156 members divided into groups such as crossbowmen, drummers,  trumpeters, flag bearers, dancers, music players, gunners and nobility. The games were introduced in the Middle Ages Rab to honor Defense of the city and in honor of the patron Saint. Christopher. They were held for the city's biggest celebrations, May 9 (Dies Victoriae) and on July 27 (Dies Natalis). In addition to these dates, restored games,  a parade and the tournament are nowdays held also on 25th June and on Assumption day, August 15. In addition, the Association Crossbowmen in its present day existence records numerous other performances  and guest appearances in towns such as San Marino, Königsbrunn and elsewhere. It also received many awards and recognition for their work.


The weapon is a crossbow. The first in Europe crossbow was used by old Goths in the 4th century to fight at a distance, and in Rab it was used in the 11th century for defending the town from the city walls. Such ancient crossbow today exists except on the island Rab only in Republic San Marino.


 Since the establishment of the Association of Rab's crossbowmen, this tournament has become a central cultural and tourist event of the island.
