21 Puzzles That Capitalize On The Star Wars Legacy, But Aren't LEGO Specific
on November 30, 2011
The family is a big fan of the LEGO Star Wars franchise, so when we saw this book of Mad Libs--it seemed like a great idea to take on a car trip. Truthfully, I haven't done Mad Libs in at least 20 years. But, all in all, they are what they are and they have endured relatively intact through the decades. This edition is presented much like any other, I'm sure, with each puzzle being a two page spread. The first part of the puzzle has the list of descriptors necessary to finishing the story. The second page is the story itself. With the two separate pages, it (1) allows the person writing to also contribute words without seeing the puzzle and (2) gives you an easy way to replay each story twice.
LEGO Star Wars Mad Libs doesn't really have a lot to do with the LEGO name other than the front cover. The stories are based on the Star War movies (as is the LEGO storyline), so there is little that can make this feel specific to the LEGO experience. But that's probably to be expected. We had fun with the set. There are 21 different Mad Libs to complete. We did them both in a family friendly way and some (in a more appropriate setting) in a bawdier adult way. Guess which way is always more fun? Suitable for all ages. Mad Libs may not have changed, but there is something to say for reliable entertainment. KGHarris, 11/11.
