Lego Board Games – Build And Change Your Game!Written by Rob Nichols on December 1, 2009 · Filed under Gadget Gift Ideas, Gadgets
That’s right you can now get Lego Board Games! Those timeless little bricks that have given us endless fun throughout the years have now been incorporated into Lego-built board games. But not just any board games, these have the added touch of having to build, destroy and rebuild the game and even the dice when you play. This gives you something that other board games can’t and that is the ability to never play the same game twice. Each game will be unique depending on how you assemble your board.
Admittedly, these are quite a contrast from a more serious Lego robotics project like the Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0, but perhaps no less fun as there are various different Lego Board Games from which to choose from, two of which we’ll give a quick run-down of here…
The first, ‘Minotaurus’. This is a simple game where you assemble the legendary labyrinth of the minotaur and litter it with traditional Lego figures and the minotaur itself to guard the hidden temple. You can assemble walls to block your opponents and no maze ever has to be the same as the last.
Secondly, there is the ‘Ramses’ Pyramid’. In this strategy game you must uncover codes to climb the pyramid to reach the mummy’s crown to become king of the pyramid. It features a set of mummified Lego figures which block your way. As with the ‘Minotaurus’, no two pyramids must ever be the same.
In the box there are 12 Lego figures for each game and a Lego buildable dice along with the usual instructions and rule books. Each game is for 2-4 players and will last up to around 30 minutes to complete, which is suitable for a lot of families this Christmas and also ensures people don’t get too board in playing them hours on end after being stuffed with their Christmas dinners!
Surely picking up one or more of these Lego Board Games is a must for any family, particularly those with young children (6+) and/or Lego fans, this Christmas.
