King Of The Swamp 2018 is rapidly approaching! And we cannot tell you just how excited we are to witness one of the coolest kendama contests to take place in Florida.
We have been receiving a lot of messages and emails regarding certain details about KOTS 2018, so we’d go ahead and clear up any questions you all may have regarding the event.
THE IMPORTANT STUFF
King Of The Swamp will be held at Langford Park in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, July 28th, from 1-6pm.
A full day of kendama, meeting new people, free mini-games, free giveaways, and free beginner and intermediate ladders with great prizes, and then of course the main event of the epic open division tournament.
During the day there will be bottled water and snacks for purchase. Music will be provided by local DJ Quadcip$. KOTS 2018 is a family friendly event and all ages are welcome. Langford Park is a City owned park so there is no smoking or consuming any alcoholic beverages allowed.
The open division costs $10 to enter and will begin around 3pm. A bracket will be formed and games of one on one will ensue where players draw tricks from a deck. Each taking turns, the first player to get the trick drawn gains a point. The first player to obtain 3 points wins.
So you wanna know what trick lists for KOTS are huh? Here they are, well, the ladders anyway…
BASE CUP, SPIKE
BIG CUP, SMALL CUP, SPIKE
FASTER THAN GRAVITY
INWARD SWING SPIKE, EARTHTURN

Now to the fun part. For KOTS 2018 we put some of kendamas coolest companies together for an epic round up of all kinds of prizes. From Dama On’s apparel, to Sweets fanny packs and Primes, through mini games, giveaways and ladders everyone has a chance to win a prize.
1st prize for the open division will be something far more unique. When we said someone was going to be crowned king, we weren’t kidding. They will become royalty and we have just the thing to portray the winners glory.
Here we have the trophy for King Of The Swamp, a bedazzled Skillderness KOTS crown made from five of our Neptune Natty kendamas.
Whoever takes 1st on July 28th will be officially crowed as King Of The Swamp by host Ryan Reese and become the champion until KOTS 2019, when they will have to defend their title.
Remember if you want to enter the open division and have a better shot at winning this fine piece of bling, then we absolutely recommend preregistering through our GoFundMe page. Were extremely excited to see you at King Of The Swamp this year and who knows, YOU MIGHT LEAVE A KING!
