Like "Pictionary" But With Legos!
on April 14, 2010
The game is similar to Pictionary but instead of drawing, you use Legos.
What is in the game:
-- a Lego Dice, which has the categories that can be found on the cards (Buildings, Nature, Things, Vehicles) as well as a You Choose and Double (which is like You Choose but you get double points if you guess.
-- a set of 96 cards divided into Easy, Medium and Hard that have pictures on them for different categories that are on the Lego Dice (Buildings, Nature, Things, Vehicles)
-- a building tray to sort the pieces by color
-- an assortment of 338 Lego pieces
How to Play:
The instruction booklet describes several different ways you can play the game, but all basically come down to building what is on the card and having someone else guess what you built. The game itself can be pretty challenging -- even for adults. My 5-year-old was able to play it though, and I think most kids familiar with Legos could play it. The recommended ages are 7 and up.
I think it is creative way to play with Legos, and a game that the entire family could participate in -- even my husband enjoyed playing it! I think it definitely encourages imagination and creativity. I also appreciate that Lego provided an assortment of ways to play ... and I'm sure most families could think up their own rules to adapt their own needs. This is only one of a whole new series of games by Lego but we chose this one because it seemed to the most open-ended and best suited to the age of our son. When he gets older, I'm sure we'll be checking into some of the other Lego games that are just being released.
