Newmindspace + Lightsaber Academy present: Lightsaber Battle Seattle 2015
A RecordSetter World Record Attempt

Join us for a massive battle of Jedi vs. Sith in Seattle on Star Wars Episode VII opening weekend. Pick a side of the force and use that venerable, ancient, glowing tool: the lightsaber, in the ultimate nocturnal showdown. In the past we have attracted up to 2000 warriors in New York City and Toronto, and we can expect even more in Seattle :)

We are having battles in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego on opening weekend. Those events already have already collectively reserved over 3000 lightsabers. We have heard a few people say they want the event in Seattle, so we are running a Kickstarter to see if this is actually the case. Share the event far and wide if you want this to happen!

There are 250 sabers at $5, the rest are $10. You will claim them in person on the night of the event. Each lightsaber changes up to 6 colors is about 3' long.

After all the sabers have been distributed, we will gather, split into Jedi and Sith, and the battle will begin. May the force be with you!


San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle?
