this game has flaws no doubt. but if you get the right collection of balls and cards there is a very nice game here.

to get a nice set of cards buy the three figure packs. the 6 balls 8 card packs have terrible cards.

also i play with six marbles preside and forces and cards are drafted before each match.

I have three boys, ages 8, 5, and 5 that are absolutely loving this toy. Apparently there is a game involved as well.

This game should be rated for what it is...a kid's game. And a dang good one. It's popular for a reason.

Got roped into playing this with my son and it is actually a fun, light little game. Psuedo-collectable (you can pick the color of your marbles, but you'll never know what the "battle value" of the monster is til you open it), so that'll turn most folks around here off...but the little marble/monsters are neat and the game itself is streamlined, easy to learn/play, and will produce some ooo's and ahhh's when trying to capture a card. Biggest complaint is cost. You really need the battle board ($30) and at least one starter pack ($20) to play it the way it is meant to be played...pretty steep entry for a toy. Thought half-seriously about buying a couple boosters for myself after an evening of play. Give it a shot. Not many dexterity/marble/transformer hybrids out there.

Hard game to rate. The kids love the figures and play with their own rules and have fun. The official rules are terrible.

Quite expensive here in Sweden at least.

Started with two battle packs which have 6 figures each. Then I started buying stuff. I mean a lot of stuff. My son now has probably close to 75
marbles... yikes.

The concept of Bakugan is amazing. I mean you have little plastic marbles which launch into a creature when its magnet hits a metallic card. Unfortunately as a game the rules are simple and often confusing. It is very hard to tell the different creatures apart in some situations. The starter sets have cards which don't gel with the creatures included. If the confusion was dispersed with a good faq Bakugan could potentially rock the gaming world (at least for young boys). So far we have a neat mechanic with a crazy simple game system that doesn't do it justice.

Still it is selling amazingly well througout the world right now. With the rules as written it will eventually flounder. A pity really. Bakugan has so much potential.

I have been in contact with Spin Master Toys to see if there is some way I can help... I guess we will see if they do get back to me.

The problem with Bakugan as a kids toy is that most of the time your marble doesn't open on a gate card. Part of this might be the skill of the child, but that isn't always the case... If more Gate cards were in the field this would be minimized. I dislike the new edition of the rules and the fact that many of the first edition cards are no longer compatible with the current edition of the game.

A simple game, except the construction of the Bakugan (balls) make them hard to aim. I haven't got any ability cards, which I think will make a real difference to game play. My major gripe would be the cost, 6 Bakugan and 6 gate cards (the minimum we needed to play) cost more than Doom:the boardgame, here in South Africa, which means I probably won't buy more of these, which is bad news for a game that, to me, relies on choosing the best combinations of cards and figures.

Another thing to be careful of is the vast numbers of fake Bakugan available.

Not a bad game of marbles to play with kids. The spring open monsters are very cool, although you'll occasionally get one that is a little tricky to properly reclose.

The price is pretty steep; I watch for them on clearance.

Fun game, though the rules are WAY too vague. I had to hunt through a dozen different websites to finally get all my questions answered. Also, it would be nice if the art matched up with the figures.

Marble skills is pretty important as they don't always pop of not thrown just right.

Great as a toy, mediocre as a game.

(2010-04-12) My daughter (7yro) enjoys Bakugan. A first, I thought the game was pretty cool, mainly because of toy aspects. Having marbles that pop open is a very clever idea!

Unfortunately, every time I play this game, I like it less and less. It's just annoying.

Wow, this would have been so much better as simply a marbles variant. After you see the cool mechanics with the transforming robots, you'll quickly wonder why a better game couldn't be invented with the same components.
