BattleKasters Takes Over Comic-Con



BattleKasters was the highlight of Comic-Con San Diego this year as the new “it” game being introduced to guests visiting the Gaslamp area. While at Comic-Con this year, we had a unique opportunity to get an in-depth look at the game, and the book that inspired the creation of the game.



The game is based on the popular teen book, The Red Sun, by Alane Adams. The Red Sun is the first of six books in the Legends of Orkney series. Alane Adams created the series when her 12-year-old son challenged her to write something he would enjoy reading.



While in San Diego during Comic-Con we played with the new game, met Alane Adams, and talked with the creators of the game. The game is unlike any other in that it inspires young gamers to find a love for literacy. During the event, gamers had a unique opportunity to play the game as the entire Gaslamp area was transformed into a giant game board. Players collected digital trading cards and could cast spells within the game that immediately changed the course of the game for everyone playing. There was a huge amount of excitement over the game as it kept players engaged throughout the event. When we got home from Comic-Con, my daughter could not wait to start reading the book The Red Sun.

Experience BattleKasters during one of their upcoming events with your children and inspire a life-long love of reading by introducing them to Alane Adams’ book series.
