Beyblade is the most hot Toys for the kids nowadays. Below is the explanation of what is Beyblade and where is comes from.
Beyblade (ベイブレード, Beiburēdo, diminutive Bey, from the diminutive of Beigoma) is a line of spinning top toys originally developed by Takara, first released in Japan in July 1999, along with its debut series. Following Takara's merger with Tomy in 2006, Beyblades are now developed by Takara Tomy. Various toy companies around the world have licensed Beyblade toys for their own regions, including Hasbro in Western countries and Sonokong in South Korea.
Game and Rules
Aside from formal play, a game with specific rules was published for the initial toyline. The formal game is played with two players or more. Each player is allowed up to three Beyblades, but may not switch parts once a match has started. Players may choose from any of the three Beyblades they have with them for any battle in a match.
In Metal Fight Beyblade, a points system was introduced. In the Beyblade Burst line of toys, Hasbro releases its own ruleset for its toyline. In general, the first player to 3 points will win a match.
Points are awarded to a player based on how their Beyblade knocks out their opponent's Beyblade. Names vary depending on the region; the following uses the Hasbro terminology followed by the Takara Tomy ones.
- One point is awarded if the opponent's Beyblade stops spinning (Survivor/Spin Finish).
- One point is awarded if the opponent's Beyblade is knocked out of the stadium or falls into a pocket in the stadium (Ring Out/Over Finish).
- Beginning with Beyblade Burst, two points are awarded if the opponent's Beyblade is "burst" during a battle (Burst Finish).
In the event of a draw (both Beyblades are knocked out of the ring, stop spinning simultaneously, or burst at the same time), no points are awarded to either player.
