How to Play Bakugan

I found some instructions from wikiHow but they appear a little confusing so I revised it. The official instructions from Spin Master Toys (makers of Bakugan) are not that much better. I actually got great playing instructions and tips from kids in the store.

This game requires nerves of steel. Try and follow the instructions below:

  1. Get a Bakugan. Pick your favorite or one with a high G-Power Rating.
  2. Put one game card facedown in the center of the battle arena in the slot furthest away from you. Players take turns shooting Bakugan Battle Brawlers with the youngest player going first. Players must shoot from at least two card lengths away. To shoot you can roll it like a marble with your thumb (or if you have the Bakugan hand launcher, you can use that).
  3. Players shoot until any two opponents’ Bakugan “stand” on the same card, meaning magnetically fasten and open, and battle. Compare the “G Power” of the battling Bakugan (it’s indicated on the sphere). Flip the card over and each player adds or subtracts the G Power Boost shown on the card. For example, 350 G Power plus 150 G Power Boost equals 500 total G Power
  4. The player with the highest G Power wins the battle, capturing the card and the defeated Bakugan. If players tie in a battle, each player keeps his Bakugan and the card is removed from play. If only one lands on it they get the card and bakugan. If you knock a bakugan off a card its an automatic knock out and you capture the bakugan and card.
  5. If you stand two of your Bakugan on a card, you automatically capture that card. You cannot shoot captured Bakugan (they are out of play for the rest of the game).
  6. Players battle until all the cards are captured. Each player then counts up the total Holo Sector Points, or HSP, of his captured cards (HSP are marked on each card) and adds 100 HSP for each captured Bakugan. The player with the most HSP wins.
  7. Pretty Simple Rules/Instructions. And if you lose in a battle don’t be sad…you can do battle another day. You don’t get to keep anyones bakugan and cards if you win (they are returned to each player).

I also found some simple instructions on how to play Bakugan Battle Brawler from YouTube which is pretty easy to follow. Remember: Don’t get frustrated with this game…you will get better.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Bakugan Battle Brawlers

Bakugan B2 Bakupearl

There are sooo many Bakugan creatures (from Series 1,2 to B2 Bakupearls) that your adult brain can get fried just trying to remember them all. It is amazing how our little loved ones know it all and can probably beat us at a Bakugan Trivia Game. I started playing Bakugan with kids that came into our store (yeah, I must have been bored) and actually found it fun. I also got a chance to learn from the kids. I normally play all games that we carry in the store to get a feel of the game play. Half the games I test are usually boring however, I got kind of hooked on bakugan! The game has flaws no doubt but if you get the right collection of balls and cards there is a very nice game here. Below are some popular questions parents ask me in the store before attempting to buy bakugan:

dividerQ: What should you look for when buying bakugans?

A: All kids want bakugan creatures that have a high G power rating (ie. 540G or 670G would be pretty powerful in gameplay). For this reason, we open up thousands of bakugans and sell them loose (so kids can get the specific G-Power rating bakugan they want).   When you buy sealed packs, you are unable to see what the G power is.  We usually open up 10-12 Starter packs before we find a really high G-power Bakugan and that is why they are priced so expensively.   Once they have been removed from the package, the bakugans are called ‘LOOSE’.   If you are buying for a very young child then the G power rating might not be so important.  However, don’t be surprised that your 6 or 7 year old will know about the value of high G power bakugans.  These kids talk among themselves and are very well educated in Bakugan.

Q: What color should I get and what are the names of these different colors?

A: You should buy the color your kid requests. Every kid has their own preferences so make sure you ask them before buying. Below are the names of the basic colors so when your child ask for ‘Pryus’, now you know what color you need to buy. Don’t buy random colors as I have so many parents return to buy the specific color their child wanted. It can save you a trip back to the store and headaches by just asking your child what color they want.  If you happen to see them at your local Wal-Mart or Toys R Us, just concentrate on buying the colors your child likes….you can always return the extra ones you don’t need (however, that is very unlikely).   Be agressive…know the color you want and attack!!!  There will be nothing left if you are unsure and plan to return later on.

  • Red = Pyrus
  • Tan = SubTerra
  • Blue = Aquos
  • Black = Darkus
  • Green = Ventus

Q: What is the difference between Booster and Starter pack?

A: Booster pack consist of a single bakugan. Starter pack consist of 3 random colored bakugans. Each pack will come with metal card(s).  Since each bakugan is sealed in their packaging, you will probably be unable to see what the G-Power rating for each creature.  Pictured below (Booster Packs on the left and Starter Packs on the right):

Which size Bakugans are the best?

November 14, 2008

We reorganized the Bakugan section in our store, but what you may not know, was we did this in order to make room for the newest line of Bakugan! B2, or Bigger Brawlers, as they are called, is the newest line to be produced, they include all new characters and are about 1.5 times the size of the original Bakugan! We just ran our 3rd Bakugan tournament (November 8th) and it was a huge success with tons of kids battling it out in the Battle Brawler Arena.

Number one question I get about Bakugans:

Q: What are the different sizes of Bakugan available and which one is the one I should be buying?

A: Well, well….this is really two questions. Let me try and answer this. There are currently three different sizes of Bakugan. Series 1 Regular sized are the first ones released over a year ago and Series 2 was release in November/2008 (slighly bigger than regular marbles).  Brand New B2 – Bakupearl just came out recently and are about the size of a ping pong ball. Deka was released a few months ago and are the size of a softball. The most popular sized bakugans are the Series 1, 2 and B2 Bakupearls….so you can’t go wrong buying those. The Deka are less popular because they are big and difficult to carry around.
