Britain's best Skylander player

By now, everyone knows that Chester is a very big Skylander fan! Can you imagine his excitement when we went to France for the day a few weeks back and he spotted Jade Flashwing?! A limited edition that you can not buy over here?! If you ask him, he will claim to be the best ever Skylander player. To be honest he talks Skylander 75% of the time and he really does seem to know his stuff. But to be the best player, I am not sure. Although he certainly is the best player in our Family!

Today a rather exciting email landed in my inbox, I was so excited about it I wanted to share it with you, my lovely readers!

This August, GAME stores up and down the country will be hosting a competition to find Britain’s Best Skylanders Player! Each entrant (who must be aged between 6 and 12) can bring along their favourite Skylander and play in the knock out tournament, with the winner determined over the course of three battle mode games. The winning individual from each regional GAME store will be automatically entered in to the final taking place at this year’s Lollibop Festival at the Olympic Victoria Park, London on 16th August.  The winner of the grand final will then be given the coveted title of Britain’s best Skylanders Player as well as win a host of special Skylanders goodies!

To take part, parents must register their children in advance. They can do this by either popping in to their nearest participating store, or tweeting the store’s twitter handle to register their child for the event. The full list of stores and dates are below:

Now Chester informs me that he would choose Drobot to take along with him and play. He says that Drobot has got the most powerful upgrades and always beats the opponent in battle mode. Who am I to argue with him?!  As you know, we will be going to Lollibop this year, we will be spending (like last year) A LOT of time in the Skylander arena. It was so good last year, this year we have Skylander Swapforce to look forward too and Chester can not contain his excitement!
