Many an adult has dreamt of what it would be like to battle with a real lightsaber, and many an adult has taken part in good old-fashioned thumb-wrestle, So it makes perfect sense that one company would combine the two, resulting in a ”Star Wars Lightsaber Thumb Wrestling” book that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike.
So much more than just a simple book, the offering from Chronicle Books is actually more of a kit. It includes two mini-lightsabers for you and an opponent to strap to your thumbs using Velcro. Two thumb-sized holes go all the way through the book, providing the proper distance for a regulation size battle arena.
The book costs $12.99 and comes packed with different battlegrounds for you and a friend to test your miniature lightsaber abilities against each other. If the idea of all-out battle doesn’t appeal to you, there is also the option of recreating favorite scenes from the Star Wars movies.
Before you go charging out to buy the book and challenge all your friends to a duel, there is one very important question you need to ask yourself. Which side of the force will you choose, dark or light?
