What is the Bakugan Game
Bakugan is one of today's most popular games with boys ages 6-12. The game combines a Pokemon type card play with the old school game of marbles. A strategic game, Bakugan, was developed by Sega Toys and Spin Master and released in connection with the anime series, Bakugan Battle Brawlers. The game uses metal cards and magnetic spring-loaded figures, which represent the Bakugan. The purpose of the game is to capture three of the opponent's Gate cards or defeat all their Bakugan.
What is Bakugan Battle Brawlers?
Bakugan Battle Brawlers is a Japanese anime television series originating in Japan. The story revolves around the lives of creatures called Bakugan and the battle brawler
characters who hold them. In 2007, Bakugan Battle Brawlers debuted in Japan on TV Tokyo.
An English language version was produced and premiered on the Canadian network the same year. In February 2008, it was put on Cartoon Network in the U.S. In parallel with the anime series, Sega Toys and Spin Master released a strategic game, called Bakugan, inlcuding metal cards and magnetic spring-loaded figures.
The game's popularity spread quickly with American boys ages 6-12, so much so that Toys R Us held tournaments in parts of the U.S.
Starter packs contain 3 Bakugan, 3 Ability cards and 3 Gate cards. This is the minimum needed for a single player in the Bakugan game. Buy two starter packs and you're ready to play the game. It's a good idea to follow the characters and point system as some cards (Ability and Gate) are more valuable than others.
