What I did is at our last party I created a Bakugan Bingo Board with pictures of the different Bakugan monsters. A bingo board has 5 columns and 5 rows so I needed 25 monsters to go in the 25 bingo squares. What I did was found pictures of the different Bakugans online and printed them out. I printed each creature out 10 different times so there would be different bingo cards for the boys. (They can't all be in the same spots or they all get bingo at once!)
Then I cut each monster out and taped it onto my homemade bingo cards. Each monster went on each bingo card 1 time. By the end I had 10 bingo cards (we had invited 10 kids) with the bakugan creatures all in different locations on each bingo card.
During the party it was time for the Bakugan bingo game! I called out the names randomly and the kids played bingo.
When there was a winner I had the boys hand me the bingo cards and I passed them out again so they had different ones. We were able to play over and over with the same sheets this way. Everyone could only win once, but even after they won they were allowed to keep playing if they wanted to (They did!).
Each winner got a Bakugan booster pack. This may seem expensive but it was the only party favor I gave out, and way better than just the typical birthday party favor junk! The boys treasured them!
What I did was buy a carton on Amazon. I got 16 booster sets for $90, which is a great savings. There were ten boys total. 9 guests and then my son. So, for $90 I gave out 9 booster sets. I set aside the other 7 before the party and my son got to unwrap those as part of his gifts. (All of his gifts were Bakugan Battle Brawlers stuff!)
The bingo cards were alot of work, but I thought it was worth it. If you don't want to make them so fancy, you could just make a bingo grid on a piece of paper and write the name of 25 Bakugan creatures into the grid spots. Less cutting and taping of pictures!
We also had the kids play some straight Bakugan battles as well. Between the two games it was hard to get them to stop and eat ice cream and cake! That's when you know they're excited. Lol!
The boys loved the Bakugan birthday games and the whole party. If he's still into it next year, we might do it again!
Note from Editor: I wasn't familiar with the Bakugan series when Shelly shared this idea. I did some poking around and found out it's a really popular Japanese Animation tv show that has it's own games as well. Here's a video from youtube on how to play Bakugan. It's done by a young boy, who better to explain it to us "old people".
