Glow Battle: A Light-Up Sword Game for Active Fun

$21,580

Get active and glow in this epic game of swords and light!

According to Business Insider, youth spend an average of SIX+ HOURS A DAY consuming media.  Even if we ignore the psychological concerns this raises, being too sedentary has devastating health consequences.  During the day, there are plenty of ways to get kids off their phones and doing something active.  But at night – what else are they supposed to do? 

Run, jump and swing for epic glowing fun, that’s what!  

Check out the fun, safe way to get family and friends off their phones, burning calories and having fun together.

Glow Battle is easy to set up and play. Its game pieces are equally straightforward – but don't let their simplicity fool you! These glowing components provide the foundation for organized game play that's perfect for developing strategy and teamwork.

Starlux Games is run by a small team of people with a shared history in youth advocacy and work in the nonprofit sector. We find inspiration in myth, game play and the outdoors – but we draw purpose from what our games offer: 

Motivation for people to put their devices aside (computers, phones, TVs) and INTERACT. 

In real time. 

Outdoors. 

With each other. 

This is our second project on Kickstarter and our fourth game in general. As you can see, we’re proud of our success: 

If these values appeal to you, please consider supporting this project. Even $1 helps get us closer to our goal! Or heck, just do it for this guy’s ego:

Risks and challenges

I’ll admit it: we were four months late delivering our first Kickstarter project, Capture the Flag REDUX. Since then, we’ve learned A LOT about producing glow-in-the-dark games, especially regarding manufacturing and shipping. But we worked through these kinks. We’ve sold over twenty thousand copies of REDUX and have successfully created three other games.

While we can’t promise there won’t be bumps in the road, know that we will maintain a high level of communication every step of the way. If we become excessively delayed, or if you receive our game and you’re unhappy with it, rest assured that WE OFFER A 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.

Your pledge, regardless of the amount, brings us closer to our goal. Help make Glow Battle a reality by sharing this project with others and by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page.
