I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
My girls, like most siblings, love a good “play fight.” You might know what I am talking about….ones where they use a long contraption from around the house and they hit each other till someone cries and Mom gets involved. Glow Battle: an Epic Game of Swords & Light is a live action game by Starlux Games where kids are encouraged to hit each other and it is all done with gear that is safe and fun to use!
Think of it this way….it is like combining Nerf and Star Wars lightsaber fighting making this one AWESOME toy! It’s 100% safe – but it also makes kids of all ages excited to get up and MOVE.
The game is sold in different size sets so you can pick the one that will work best for your kids. There is the Gladiator starter set with 4 pieces of light all the way up to the Glow Master Kit. Mine pictured above and below is the Glow Battle Full Kit. It includes 10 Weapons of Light, 10 glow bracelets, 8 Regeneration Station Lights and Game instructions. My kit here is a preview kit but yours will arrive fully packaged as a polished game set.
Perfect for 2-10 players, this glow-in-the-dark activity provides hours of fun. Oh how I wish I had this game back in my childhood for my brother and I to play. This is exactly the type of game we would have loved!
Their image above shows you what all the items are used for. Station markers for the home base, hitty weapons of light and glow wristbands to differentiate teams and to keep track of hits.
Their suggested rules are in the infographic above but this is one of those games that are really great for creating your own rules as well. The opportunities are endless! Even the Husband and I like to get in on this game and wack each other! This will be especially great in the backyard once summer arrives for us to get together with other families and watch the kids play at twilight!
This is not one of those games that you buy and they play once then it just takes up space in the house. Instead this is a unique game where they finally get to hit each other and get all their energy out so they will want to play it time and time again! Would be especially great for parties and sleepovers! The girls have declared Glow Battle “awesome and the coolest game ever.” The friends they have played this with think it is awesome and we are now the “cool house” to hang out at.
Their other games have been featured by sources ranging from Boys’ Life to BuzzFeed but Glow Battle looks to be the most exciting of their collection to date!
The Kickstarter is live now. Supporting a Kickstarter means supporting a small group of people that are creating a really unique toy that they are super passionate about. This is their second project on Kickstarter and their fourth game in general so the “kinks” from starting a Kickstarter are already behind them. In fact this Kickstarter is already fully funded…that means people WANT this toy! Now is the time to get Glow Battle at the best price possible and to get it as soon as it is ready so that your kids can start enjoying it!
