First, we got in a very long line, and The Boy got his battle card.
While we waited, we watched the battles going on below.
There were three areas - the training section, the guided play section, and the battle arena. They were much more crowded than this - these were just a few players finishing up. Mostly, the sections looked like this.
While we waited, we reviewed The Boy's bakugon.
Which soon led to checking out the competition. The kids immediately wanted to start trading, but the moms were mean and said no. Even though The Boy is a pretty good negotiator, there was just too much going on.
The Boy loves comparing and talking about bakugon. I think this was his favorite part of the whole day.
Finally, it was our turn. We sat through the training (given by the #7 ranked player in the world, who is a grown man, which Husband found amusing) and then it was time to play!
Although The Boy didn't win a prize (if you won three rounds, you got a t-shirt) he was a very good sport about it. And he got a poster and a coupon for a dvd. Afterwards, we celebrated with a Volcano at the Rainforest Cafe.
The Boy is already talking about next year.
