Required Items

  • Two jousting attachments for the competing Vorpals, including the two magnets on top.
  • Two jousting figurines, each with a magnet inserted in the bottom.

Activity Procedure

  • Mount a jousting attachment on each Vorpal, hooking into the accessory mount.
  • Place a jousting figurine on the farthest away magnet of each attachment.
  • Set down the Vorpals facing each other. After a count down, allow the opposing Vorpals to jump into action and attempt to knock over the opponent's figurine while still defending its own.

Hints

  • Try using different dance/fight modes that allow the Vorpal to stand taller on its legs.

Variations

  • For a more difficult variation of the activity, place the figurines on the magnets closer to the body.
