Looking for the hot toy this holiday season? Well, look no farther than Bakugan Battle Brawlers. Bakugan Battle Brawlers are the game sensation sweeping the nation that’s based on the popular Japanese Bakugan anime television series. Just like the TV show, Bakugan Battle Brawlers are chock full of wham, bam, slam excitement that’s guaranteed to provide hours of battle brawlin’ fun.
At first glance, the rules may seem a bit complicated, but are easily understood after a few rounds. Basically, players sit across from each other and place Bakugan Gate Cards on the battle board. Then each player, in turn, rolls their Bakugan onto the board. If the Bakugan rolls over a gate card it opens automatically and is ready for battle.
Players have three Bakugan Battle Brawlers, three Gate Cards, and three Ability Cards each. Advanced players may also add one trap to make for more exciting play. Each Brawler has a point value. Gate cards add to that value depending on the type of Bakugan that is on the card.
A Bakugan Battle Brawler is a small sphere until it lands on a gate card. When it does, the gate card causes the Bakugan Battle Brawler’s sphere to open revealing the Bakugan Battle Brawler inside. When two Battle Brawlers land on the same gate card they battle it out until one wins. The player who owns the winning Bakugan Battle Brawler gets the gate card and gets to go first in the next round. The battles continue until one player has won enough battles to collect three gate cards.
Because there are over a hundred different Bakugan Battle Brawlers to choose from, no two games are ever alike. Who wins the game all depends on which Bakugan Battle Brawlers you pick to play with and which Bakugan Battle Brawlers your opponent picks to play with. You can also amp up your Bakugan battles by getting the Bakugan Battle Arena to play on or by using the Bakugan Launcher to aim your Bakugan Battle Brawlers during the game. There’s even a neat Bakugan Collector Case to store your Battle Brawlers in when you’re not playing. How cool is that!
Get ready to rumble this holiday season. It’s great to see a game that actually gets kids playing with each other face to face. Not only that, Bakugan Battle Brawlers toys make a fun hobby that keeps kids active while having fun.
