How old is everyone that plays this game ?

I'm sadly 34 and decided to see what all the fuss was about, bought the Giants Edition today and i have to be honest it feels like old school gaming with a twist. Love it !

I'm 28 and I play it with my daughter as she brought it with her Xmas money.

We both love it, I wish Nintendo would steal the format for Pokemon with a Pokeball portal.

Oh and I brought Trigger Happy just for me to use, haha!

29, havent gotten all out on my way to get all the figures yet :P but i probaly will with time, except for the expensive rare figures, i have a series 1 Legendary Trigger Happy, and i guess that will probaly be the only one i get, unless i get some other for a good price :Pi have 9 series 1 figures, counting the legendary, and i have 4 series 2 figures, only one of them is a giant so far, but will get the fire type giant soon

The game is okay for younger kids, but it just seems like a money pit. My little brother had Skylanders on the Wii and spent over 150 bucks on the game and figures, spending just about all of the money he was saving. It's a decent kids game, but not worth that price. I would prefer Lego Star Wars, personally.

I saw the mini gun and wanted it, haha! Maxed him out at Lvl 15 now.

Started leveling up Sprocket. She's an amazing Tech who can build Sentry Turrets and Tanks along with Bouncing Betty Mines, just so cool.

(30 HERE: And I bought it for myself but said it was for my girls 7 & 5 but they play also -When I let then- lol) My Tree Rex is fully maxed out and destroys everything all day long but Prism Break & Shroomboom light core are my fav and then POP FIZZ and Hotdog are awesome also. My girls favorite is Wrecking Ball and Chill. They are waiting for the SERIES 2 Wrecking Ball and Light Core edition of Chill to come out.

Hahaha!!! I feel this way all the time since last year when I started buying original game/figures... and I actually have kids. Kids (who play it) range from 7-13. I originally bought game and all characters for myself but as a collector I couldn't bring myself to open them and allow my kids to play with them, so I now have an entire second set (of originals) for them as well.

Yes it was expensive, but it was also good insensitive to get them to do there chores. So I'd say it was worth it!!!

Currently collecting Giants characters for myself and will soon start rebuying them again for the kids for new game... their almost as excited as me LOL. I'm 33 btw

38 and I play it with my 11 year old daughter. And to be honest I would have beaten it but I can only play story mode with her, lol. It's a fun game, and ill play the levels by myself that we already played together to level up and unlock stuff.

34, bought for my nephew (who's 9 in 3 days time).

Managed to get all but the legendary figures for the first one.
We were also lucky enough to get the Legendary triple pack (Jet Vac, Slam Bam and Ignitor) and the Glow in the Dark Cynder and Fright Rider

Fell for the money trap!

I'm 26. I, too, bought it to see what all the fuss was about, and honestly, the game is only moderately good, at best, in my opinion.

However, collecting all the figures and their rare variations is what has me hooked. Haven't been this addicted to something since Pokémon, first generation (red/blue versions).

My son who is almost 6 wanted it for his big brother gift ( just recently had another child) shortly after watching one late nighter with my newborn I started playing so now I am hook, which worked out for my son because one day we went on an adventure going to about a dozen stores looking for ones he wanted. Oh I am 28 and also my wife 27 plays with hex.

30 and my friend who plays is 31. His step son who is 13 had it and I bought one figure to play with him when I came over. About two days later I spent 200 bucks on buying a bunch of them. Now all his friends come over when I am there playing and get jealous at my collection of 84 Skylanders.
