    Seriously, I just don't get it. I mean I grew up in the 90's so I'm not really unfamiliar with the whole schtick it has, I mean we had Pokemon, Digimon, Yuigioh, Medabots, Beyblade, all that stuff. But this...I just don't get it.

    I've tried to understand how the game works. I've tried to accept them just as little toys (I actually even own one of them, just because I wanted to see what the deal with them) and while some are pretty neat, I just do not get it.

    Basically, you and a few of your little friends lay down on the ground and roll each other's balls around until they spring up.

    I tried to understand it, and at the core it is a very complicated version of marbles.

    I'd rather stick with Beyblade, tops is tops.

    Given it's Secretcode? I'd say intention is abundant. So I'll just lol.

    As for me, I have some of these things because they are fun to smash into wall to see how much of a dent they can make. But that's it. Cartoon sucks and game makes no bloody sense.

    *Brings out gun*. Don't.insult.the.Shinkis.

    Anyways, these things are odd. Watched a little bit of the show and it made no sense. Didn't help with use them. They lost me with all the point increases.

    Normally with shows like these, you can learn the game by watching the show or at least get a basic understanding of it. But with Bakugan? Yeah I couldn't grasp HOW they exactly played it myself.

    It's kind of like Yugioh if it got even more complicated.

    I know like with Yu-Gi-Oh!, you can understand how to play, with a couple of little guides included and Beyblade is dead simple. A 3 year old could understand it (even know they're for 8 year olds)! But Bakugan just doesn't. It's show is more "you know the rules already so enjoy it" rather than "learn how to play by watching the show".

    Have one of them and it's kinda neat how it tforms automatically when you touch something magnetic.

    Still thinking about getting that big red combiner dragon thing. Looks fun to figitate with.

    Only beef with Bakugon is it's taking up half the damn aisle.

    So much like Beyblade was just an XTREEEEEM!!! version of tops, Bakugan is an XTREEEEEM!!! version of marbles.

    So what ancient children's games haven't the Japanese made XTREEEEEM!!! yet?

    Hopscotch? Skipping rope?

    ...Tag?

    ^yea


    blah ..I don't get them too.you roll a ball and it transforms?fuu...these kids should see the real transformers.
    and my sister bought one of those.don't know how much do they cost in USA , but here she could have bought two legends figures for that price.they were on sale ,though.still a legend figure is cheaper.

    yu-gi-oh was easy to understand.you have life points and you have cards.each card has attack points and defense points.some cars had effects , or some were spells or something like that.
    but these.I just don't get how this game works.

    Think part of my issue is that it takes up a pretty large section on our shelves at the Target I work with, and it is generally a damnable mess that I have to zone.

    At least it's on the aisle I actually enjoy zoning, since there's all the TFs and SW figs and stuff.
