I received a Starlux Glow Battle Game in exchange for this post, however all views expressed are my own.
We’re going on six weeks of a shelter-in-place stay-home executive order here in the state of Oregon. And for a family of five with two, full-time working parents and three kids navigating Crisis Survival School, things are starting to get hairy. We’ve planted a garden, built backyard box forts, watched every new release on Disney+, and ordered take-out from all the small businesses still open in our small town, but nearly two months of just the five of us is starting to wear down the most patient hearts! Even healthy and happy families like us are feeling a little claustrophobic and tired of seeing and playing with the same people day after day! It’s like the end of summer vacation when we’ve already done EVERYTHING, except that nothing is open, and we can’t go anywhere!
Enter Starlux Games, self-proclaimed to find a way to give kids and adults alike a reason to unplug, get outside, and do something active together. After nine years as a teacher, inventor Judd King developed a series of outdoor, glow-in-the-dark games. Starlux leverages classic games such as Capture the Flag and three other varieties with updated twists, adding in elements of strategy and teamwork which get everyone going and glowing, offering fun for all ages…and COVID-19 boredom relief!
Starlux Games sent us their Glow Battle pack to try, and when the weather finally cooperated, we were able to test it out in our backyard. It was a blast! Even when spring rains came, and we were forced back inside, the 10 Gameplay Option Cards brought a variety of different twists to the game to keep our kids entertained for hours…and even mom and dad enjoyed getting in on the competition!
If you are like our family and you need something more than online school, TV, and the same old toys and games to kick the COVID boredom, order one of these unique glowing games from Starlux, including Starlight Swimming Games…the ultimate pool party fun with glow-in-the-dark lights, perfect for your backyard or community pools this summer!
