This past weekend I received a review set of Skylanders Swap Force: Frost Guard Battle Arcade” from MEGA BLOKS and my daughters and I had a blast playing with it.

“Skylanders Swap Force: Frost Guard Battle Arcade” is a really cool set.  It comes with an arena, two spinners, two characters (Hoot Loop & Grilla Drilla), two rip cords, two sheep and some bloks to build two catapults.

The object of the game is to see whose spinner can knock the other player’s spinner either out of the arena or to stop them from moving.

The two characters that come with the set are very detailed and look awesome.  They look exactly like they came out of the video game.  One really neat and unique feature is that you can remove the top half of each character and put them on another character’s lower half.  Plus you can nicely fit each top half onto the spinner. 

There are many different characters that you can buy to play with the “Frost Guard Battle Arcade” set and I do want to get them all.

The spinners are very well designed.  They are heavy and when they are activated by the ripcords they spin nicely and are very durable.

“Skylander Swap Force: Frost Guard Battle Arcade” is for ages 5 and up and like I mentioned earlier, my daughters and I had a blast playing it.  We spent many hours battling each other and I think I lost most of the time. 

I have two daughters and while the two of us where fighting in the arena with our Skylanders the other one was throwing sheep at us with the catapults that are located outside of the arena.

This is a really great set that the whole family can play with.

I would highly recommend that you check out MEGA BLOKS “Skylanders Swap Force: Frost Guard Battle Arcade,” because it is a fun and exciting set to play with and the characters look awesome.  I know that fans of MEGA BLOKS and “Skylanders” will really enjoy this set as much as I did.
