What It Is
Skylanders: Block 'N' Blast Action Game is an action-packed game that gives Skylanders fans a whole new way to play with the characters from the video games. One player or team will be the defender or Kaos' side and the other player or team will be the attacker for the Skylanders. The Kaos team secretly selects their minions and places them on the board while the Skylanders secretly select their character and place it on the disc launcher.
Why It’s Fun
This is a fast-paced and frenetic game that kids are going to have a blast, no pun intended, playing. Once both players or teams are ready, the battle begins as the Skylanders side tries to earn as many points as possible by knocking over minions and the ultimate goal, Kaos himself. The game comes with clear rules for the setup and point system. There are also rules that explain how both players will take turns playing both sides of the game. There are bonus rounds and special points awarded when the Skylanders' elemental type matches any minions knocked over and there is also a bomb card that the Kaos side gets to hide behind one of the minions.
Who It’s For
Skylanders fans, ages 5 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The board and minion pieces snap together easily in a matter of minutes so kids can quickly start playing once the box is open.
