Battle Bands review and giveaway

Just in time for your holiday shopping, Battle Bands blend two of the hottest toy crazes: shaped wristbands and collectible cards. Now the boys in your life can get in on the craze of shaped wristbands and have some fun while doing so.  Senario, just released Battle Bands™, a series of flexible, collectible and tradable wrist bands that double as game pieces. Boys ages 6+ have a blast collecting over 70 different bands in various shapes including dragons, sharks and monsters, each including a matching trading card.

But, the fun really begins as players battle their bands against each other on the battle mat gaming piece. Each player takes turns launching their bands at the battle mat. The winner of each battle is based on where the bands land, as well as the band’s individual “strength,” which gives it a particular advantage.   This is a fun game for boys.  Nice alternative to the video game world that consumes children now a days.  
When Battle Bands players shoot the bands onto the battle board to score points it also simulates fantasy battles between their characters.  There is a story that goes along with the game.  Battle Bands packs include elastic Battle Bands, Warrior Cards and a Battle Mat for game play. With several colors and shapes, each band represents a different level and “power,” making it an exciting game that balances familiarity with strategy. Battle Bands come in four categories – water, earth and fire – each featuring its own power. And, the rare “black band” gives the player the upper hand.

Battle Bands is produced by Senario and is available at major retailers like Target, Walgreens, and Rite Aid. It runs $6.99 for a Starter Pack (7 bands and cards with battle mat), $3.99 for a booster (5 bands and cards), and $9.99 for a Rumble Pack (15 bands and cards with a “deluxe” Battle Board).
