Ninjago Spinners are Ninjago sets first released in 2011. In some sets, a spinner was included to use in the game. The objective of the game is to knock the other character off their spinner. Trading cards are also used when playing to give your character an advantage in battle. The game was discontinued in 2012; but it was soon replaced by Ninjago Flyers which were released in Summer 2015.
The name "Spinjitzu" is formed from the words "Spin", and "Jitsu", literally meaning "Spin Martial-Art".
The sets below all contain a minifigure, a spinner, five trading cards, one 2X2 plate, two 1X2 bricks, and three weapons. The spinners in series two, four, five, and six include extra pieces for spinners. Every spinner has one character card and four battle cards.
