About

"It's just kinda magical"
"It's just kinda magical"

The moon is out... Now let the games begin! 

Introducing Wizards & Werewolves, an epic team-based game that pits two mythical forces against each other in an exciting backyard battle of speed, skill and wits. 

Play as a Wizard and embark on a perilous journey to capture glowing magical crystals and lead your team to victory.  Or bare your teeth and howl as you join the Werewolves, guarding the crystals and hunting down Wizards until all have been forced to join your dark ways. 

For 4-10+ players, ages 8 and up, this fast-paced outdoor game promises to get your group’s pulses racing and imaginations soaring.  

This is our third Kickstarter and our fifth game.


"It almost feels like you’re playing a story rather than just players in a game"
"It almost feels like you’re playing a story rather than just players in a game"

Light up the night with glow-in-the-dark game pieces as you embrace your imagination with specialized player roles and three levels of game play.

Each game set includes the following:

  • 5 Wizard Armlets  
  • 1 Moon Crystal  
  • 4 Field Markers  
  • 2 Star Crystals 
  • 1 Complete Rulebook (with 3 levels of gameplay)
  • 7 Character Cards (for Game Level C, "Circle of Wizards") 

*All batteries are included and replaceable (type CR1220)

"Really great exercise but it was also super fun"

Besides the fact that it's dynamic, innovative and fun, here are some more specific reasons: 

  • Exciting group activity – whether it's your gaming group, the kids in the neighborhood or a family event, it's easy to set up and all you need is space to run
  • Choose specialized player powers – similar to certain board games and RPGs 
  • Skip the gym – play this instead!  
  • Build teamwork & strategy – people work together, think together, win together
  • Encourage people to get outdoors – and off their phones and other screens
  • Bring fantasy to life!

Hide, hunt, howl and run!  Join the Wizards and you commit to one type of mission.  Join the Werewolves and you commit to another.  Either way, get ready for action-packed game play!


"You can really have fun with this game with everybody. Literally go get your grandpa."
"You can really have fun with this game with everybody. Literally go get your grandpa."

Each Wizards & Werewolves game kit includes three levels of game play, ranging from simple to complex.  Which challenge are you up for? 

Wizards search for the Moon Crystal to end the curse and win the game. But they must be careful: the Alpha Werewolf lurks in the darkness!  As it hunts them down, each Wizard bitten (tagged) by the Werewolf must howl, join his pack and search for fresh victims!

A full pack of Werewolves roams the darkness.  Now the Wizards must do more than just find crystals – they must amplify their innate powers with a crystal and destroy (tag) the Alpha Werewolf.  But be careful...once you carry the crystals, you become the clearest target for the werewolves to ATTACK!

The plot thickens as each Wizard claims a special power. Some Wizards banish lesser Werewolves, some heal their teammates – but all must unite to keep the throng of seemingly invincible Werewolves at bay. Only the Moon Crystal or the Arch Wizard can end the curse, so get ready for some seriously strategic gameplay!

*You only pay shipping once; there are no additional charges for multiple games.

The USA, European Union and Australia are “Shipping Friendly.”  Backers from these countries will not be charged import taxes.

The game piece design is complete.  The packaging is ready to go.  Instructions are done.  Kickstarter funding will move us from a cool game we play at our headquarters to a cool game you can play with friends and family. 



Remember when you were a kid, running around with your friends, imagining fantastical worlds and having fun moving, being, playing and laughing?  At Starlux Games, we create action-packed, pulse-pounding outdoor games designed to bring these memories to life. 

We wanted a game that would give both kids and adults a reason to put down their cell phone, iPad, or laptop and chase their wildest adventures in real life.  Wizards & Werewolves is the answer: it’s a game that’s both active AND imaginative. And also werewolves, c’mon.

We’ve created four previous glow-games, including TWO successful crowdfunded games, Capture the Flag REDUX and Glow Battle: A Light-Up Sword Game for Active Fun.  We’ve sold over 50,000 copies of our games with legions of happy players.  We’re confident our team will bring Wizards & Werewolves to life on schedule and with 100% full wizard and werewolf glow power.

Ready to turn off the screen, get outside and battle in an action-packed glow adventure? Join us and start practicing your howls.

Risks and challenges

Wizards & Werewolves is our fifth game and our third Kickstarter. We have longstanding relationships with our manufacturer and importing partners. We'd like to think we know what we're doing.

But since life is life, we know there can be unexpected turns. We will keep you updated at every step of the Kickstarter process. We're going to invite you along for the journey of turning a fantastic prototype into an actual game that goes all around the world.

When we're funded, our communication doesn't stop there. We'll respond swiftly to any questions you might have about the game, shipping, or whatever else. Even if you forgot to fill out your Kickstarter survey and contact us five months later asking where your reward is— yup, we'll respond and find a fair solution. Even if you're in Germany and for some reason the government confuses a light-up foam baton as potentials weapon of terror— we'll send the game to you in Amsterdam.

(Yes, these things really happened on our last Kickstarter.)

Last point: there's one more reason we're confident in ourselves. On our previous Kickstarter for Glow Battle, we offered people a 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if they weren't completely happy. Here's the shocker: NOT ONE person took us up on it. So we're speaking from the crowd when we say we think you'll love it :-)

If you get the game but it doesn't meet your expectations, shoot us a message for a refund, and please, let us know what we can do better.

We love our games and hope you and your family do too. Thanks for joining us on this journey to better games and better health.

On we go!
