The battle of the bands...

That is, RUBBER bands. Remember how much fun it was to shoot elastic bands in elementary school? Well, this new game Battle Bands is looking to revive that bad habit and add some cool customization to the game. And to top it off the elastics are shaped like really friggin' cool monsters!!!

Each different creature comes with a corresponding element and description card adding some depth to the simple game of shooting elastics at other elastics.  Certain colours beat other colours immediately, otherwise the creature with the highest strength wins.

Having received this game in the mail, I must say at first I didn't think I was the target audience...  But having opened it up now, you can't help wanting to play with the colourful elastic characters.  I'm looking forward to playing this with my 6-year-old nephew when I get back home at Christmas.  Although the 37-year-old I live with looked pretty excited when I opened up the box.  Maybe we'll try it before then.

If walking around with a blanket is too over the top for you (or makes you feel like Linus from an oversized wrap or cape is another option. This recycled cotton poncho in a cool indigo hue says, accessorizing, not, freezing..

    Its very frustrating!. I guess all we have to do is wait. And it sucks that there seems to be no straight answer!. Trump was the cruelest candidate since George Wallace.
