Finally figured out my problem and how to fix it. :rolleyes5: :idea: It [for the first time] happened in Chapter Three. Oh, gosh! Where in Chapter Three? I think in Muddy Marsh Village... Well, anyway, these little minions were snapping at ankles and smacking the Skylanders with what looked like hamburger spatulas (anybody else think that?) Everyone was wearing themselves out going after the mini monsters. I figured out if you go after the flower (Chompy Pod) or whatever's popping out the little beasts things go much quicker and the Skylanders save their energy. A lot of the tiny brats just 'POOF' die when the housing that pops them out is killed. I still wear out my Skylanders but I think as things move along I'll get better at saving their strength.
