You set up an ingredient rack by following the build instructions. The goal is to collect four specific ingredients, and then cast the magic spell by placing all the ingredients into a black cauldron piece. The cauldron seems like a pretty after-the-fact addition as you've already won when you collect all your ingredients, but hey the kids will probably love that part. So, there are four each of four ingredients on the rack. You need to collect one of each ingredient to win. The six-sided die has a color to correspond to each ingredient (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow), so you basically just roll the die and take the appropriate ingredient from the rack (assuming there are any left). Each player also has their own scoring rack (ingredient list), with four colored places to put ingredients and keep track of what you need to collect. Fill up your ingredient list, and you win.
There are two twists to this. At the beginning of your turn, you may move the white owl piece to a spot outside any row or column of ingredients. If you roll white on the die, you make take any ingredient from the row or column you've placed the owl on- if you forgot to move the owl, you have to choose from where it is. If you instead roll black on the die, you may take one ingredient from another player- this is especially useful later in the game when other players may have taken all of a specific ingredient off the rack. This completed the die (White, Black, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow).Read more ›
I like that this game is cheap, less than ten dollars is a great deal as children's board games go.
I like that it is very simple to play, but has variations to make it more exciting as well.
I like that it is a very quick game, we can play it in just a few minutes and it is every bit as satisfying as if it took longer. My son has lost a lot since we play it a lot, the first time he screamed and threw a fit and ran out of the room, but by now, he just asks to play again, so it's a good experience in not winning everytime as this game is very hard to throw in his favor or cheat at.
I like the elements that are unique to this game like the dice.
I would recommend it to anyone with young children that is a lego fan, it might even be good for a non lego fan, just so long as they don't get annoyed by small pieces.
Like books, games for children can be pretty taxing and less than thrilling for adults. I shudder to think of my daughter's Chutes and Ladders days. I'm always a little worried when we get a new game, because I want it to be a fun experience for the whole family, and that's exactly what Magikus is. When you first open the box, it contains a rule book for the game and an instruction book for assembling the game "board", plus all of the little Lego pieces you'll need for the assembly (and a couple extra). My husband has loved Legos ever since he was a kid, so he loved putting the game set together. It was a nice activity for him and my daughter. The assembly isn't all that complicated, but she's six, and I'm not sure it was something she could have handled on her own. At any rate, putting the game together is part of the fun of the experience.
Once the game is assembled, play can begin. The object is to get the four components you need in order to create the spell and win the game. Gameplay is fast-paced and this is a quick game, which makes it nice for squeezing a quick session in before or after dinner. My daughter really likes the customizable die, and has fun taking it apart and putting it back together in a new configuration. The die makes me marvel at Lego's ability to come up with fun, innovative products.
We began with the basic rule set and then expanded into other rule sets as we got a hang of the game. Changing the rules up helps keep the game fresh and just makes the product even more fun. Our current favorite is the "secret spell" alternate rule. The next step will be to try to cook up our own rules for the game. This is a really fun product that I would highly recommend.

Very fun Lego set for my 5 year old grandson. he has put it together a number of times, although we have not actually played the game yet.Published 16 months ago by Cecilia Kerstiens
This game was enjoyed by the kids except it's replay value seems to diminish. It's a bit simple for the older players.Published on January 22, 2014 by Amazon Customer

This one is ok--it is not a favorite. It is pretty simple. Our 5 year old like it much better than the 8 year old.Published on December 18, 2011 by StacyShropshire
