One of the items on Tigger’s Christmas wish list was the Bakugan® Battle Arena, however, it was one of the items that none of our family or friends bought for him. As luck would have it we were sent one of the Bakugan® Battle Arenas along with a select of Bakugan® toys to try out at home last month. Something Tigger was very excited to see and it came at the perfect time due to staying at home for an extended period of time.

How to play Bakugan®

  1. Each player needs three Bakugan® (and Character Cards) and six BakuCores – These much match the BakuCore symbols with those on your team’s Character Cards.
  2. To set up Hide Matrix, BakuCores must touch one entire side to another BakuCore when placed
  3. Players alternate placing BakuCore facedown (flip a BakuCore to determine who goes first).
  4. Each player rolls an unopened Bakugan® toward the Hide Matrix. If only Bakugan® opens, that player turns over their Character Cards. If both players Bakugan® open they flip over their Character Cards.
  5. Players combine the B score from their Character Card with any BakuCore that was picked up. The highest B wins the Brawl.
  6. Both players set their Bakugan® back on their Character Cards – the victorious Bakugan® will remain open and the other must be closed
  7. All BakuCore picked up in the round must be returned to the Hide Matrix
  8. In the event of a B tie, the highest ‘fist‘ wins – If a ‘fist‘ tie, roll again.
  9. The first player to win 3 Brawls (one with each of their Bakugan®) wins the game!

Our thoughts on Bakugan®

As I unpacked the Bakugan® Battle Arena with Tigger, I suddenly felt very old and very out of touch with the younger generation – having absolutely no idea on what the little balls were never mind how you played the game. Thankfully, Tigger is very patient and explained the basic principles to me and before long I was able to understand what I needed to do. A fun game of relative chance and one that the children can play with together – although Piglet needs a little assistance when counting up the B points at the end of each round.
