Roll-and-move, fun for small kids. I just like playing with Lego.

This game's selling point is that it's LEGOS. And as a Lego game it is a success at what it's trying to do. Sure it's roll and move, but it still has a number of good decisions you have to make. Notably choosing what to do when landing on the helicopter space (special piece is usually best choice), what type of piece to take when you can choose any color (go for grey or black because they don't have a color option), and who to steal from when landing on that space. My kids really enjoyed it and wanted to play a 2nd time which is always a great sign.

Nice for kids. Get this as a christmas present and it has been fun for the whole family to play with it. Other than the family enjoyment, there is nothing (strategy wise) to it.

I rate this higher just for the LEGO nostalgia. If you don't have a plastic bricks fetish, pass on this one.

[i]Posted: 10/17/05, Rated: 6[/i] More of the same on again, off again rain. My five year-old pulled this game out to play, and I don't know how I missed it during my previous inventory. The board is [i][thing=1406]Monopoly[/thing][/i]-esque in its layout, with an assortment of Lego pieces in the middle instead of cards. It is worth mentioning that these are the "standard" size pieces, not Duplos. There are some good choking hazards for very young children. Also, while there is a picture of a mini-fig on the cover, none of those little guys are included with this game. Each player starts by selecting a building plan that has the same color back as everyone else's. Four sets of building cards provide some replayability. Roll and move is the mechanic of the day, accumulating the pieces as you go. There are spaces which allow you take pieces from other players, so there is some confrontation in the game. My five year old still screams if he gets victimized by one of these spaces. Also, the rules recommend building your model as you go, but in practice it is harder to keep track of what you need if you are not laying out your existing pieces on your building card. There is some minor strategy: players should focus on collecting "special pieces" (and try to pick the model of the set that requires the fewest of them). Players should also select their "regular" pieces in such a way as to maintain the usefulness of every space on the board for as long as possible. For example, don't take both of your yellow pieces in a row, which would then make all of the "take a yellow piece" spaces unusable. This game is a simple one, that does provide an interesting variation of building with Legos. I'll willingly play it if my children ask for it, but I won't bring it out on my own.

Not as bad as you think. A fairly decent game for kids and families.

Bought more as a LEGO set than a game (not a good price-per-piece ratio if bought at full price, but mine was clearanced). I have the Deluxe version in the tin, with more pieces.

I won this game twice. These are my first wins in any game this year. I have returned it to the supplier as it is clearly broken.

Great game for kids. We love building the models and especially the "steal bricks from your opponent" spaces!

Simple roll-and-move mechanic and not a lot of stragegy involved, but it's LEGO, which has to count for something. It's fun to build the little models as you progress in the game.

Fun to play around with, but not much of a game.

By
Good kids game. Small parts. The kids need to be old enough to avoid dropping the pieces. Hard to keep all of the pieces organized.

My son likes Legos, and he liked this game a lot up until I stole his pieces, and he screamed, "THAT'S NOT FAIR!" Perhaps when he's a little older....

Thrift April 2008. Excellent, excellent kids game. My kids asked to play this twice on the first day we played it. Very good for all my kids aged 8 thru 3. Very glad that I found a complete copy at the thrift. I'm definately getting my money's worth out of it already.

More fun than it appears. All luck on where you land on the board but it has some good strategy especially for kids around 8-10.

Good way to introduce Legos to very little kids. Beyond that, it's not much of a game at all.

7 out of 10

This is great! I mean, I would rate 3 for playing it with my friends. But for easing a 5 year old into boardgaming? Pffffft! A perfect 9! So I score it somewhere in between, and then adding some for actually having a good time myself and even putting in a LITTLE bit of tactic. (I would probably rate it 1 for playing with my friends. But with beer and houserules it might work if it's the only game in the house.)

Even though I rate this low, I play it often with my kids, because it's very fun for them. Lately we don't even play the game (taking bricks from another player is *not nice*) but just build the models, and the kids have just as much fun.

I rated this a number 2 earlier. But since my almost 3 year old son discovered this game I have to change my mind. This is an exellent childrens game. My son has learned to take turns, roll a dice and count, learn the thing with gaming, learnt about colors and shapes and how to follow instructions to build something. He loves it!

My son would have given this game a 10 from when he was 5-8 years old. Better than most kids games he would play.

May I or may I not steal a builded piece?

An ok game of trying to build little lego toys before your opponents finish theirs. Pretty much a roll and move game.

As far as games to play with kids go I really like this.

I generally don't care for roll and move games but I don't mind this one. The building aspect helps. It's a good game to play with kids (esp in the 4 - 8 range) since the model building does require some thought by them.

I like making lego stuff, but there isn't really any "gameplay".

Great game for kids. A change from the standard Candyland.

The kids and I played this for the first time, and my daughter (4) won. It is basically all luck based. But, it is perfect for my kids (4 and 7). They loved it! Plus, the structures that we each built at the end of the game were fun for them to play with. What a great concept. I look forward to many more plays of this in the near future.

A great game to play with the kids. Not much challenge, but it's fun to see them having fun.

a kidsgame, but one that even non-gaming daddy will join us in, every once in a while

Rating assumes you are playing with 5-10 year old children. The game play is rather linear (think monopoly/candyland) but the lego creations add extra interest and there a small amount of strategy around which pieces to collect first.

When comparing the designs required to build, I find that each grouping has at least one design that will have little to no interaction/conflict with the others, while the remaining designs have conflict. I'm not sure this game is fair...it might pre-determine the winner entirely by the design chosen....

Kids who love legos will like this game. I don't mind playing it. good luck keeping track of all the pieces, though.

Fun mechanism of building with LEGOs. In order to create your location it is impossible to not have to use the "take" lego(s) from other players - so for some younger kids this may seem like a mean game.

Got it for about 20p at my neice's school christmas fair. A few bricks missing which I ordered for pennies from the Lego online store. The kids love this one and always want to play. It is just roll and move though.

I used this game to try to get my children to play with lego. It didn't work...:( The game's okay but takes a bit too long to play and the children's attention will slip away.

Rated from the perspective of Daughter the Elder. Well designed in that she could not yet read when she started playing it, but after one game knew what every square was - the combination of colour coding and pictures is very effective. She likes the planning of not picking pieces that other people can steal until later in the game and deciding between getting a special piece or the "take one from another". Excellent game for small children. The only downside is making sure you pack up the seventy-two pieces of Lego each time!

5 out of 10

Really it's a game of "who can get special bricks the fastest".

Great light game for younger kids and I like it to just because I love building lego!

5 out of 10

Fun game the first few times, but I found the replayability to be poor when I was locked into making the same designs over and over. The roll-and-move mechanic was also frustrating.

By
The kids played this to death. I own pieces of it, not sure the whole thing is there. My kids liked it even though not much of a game - hey, its Lego! No rating - kids game

Great game for kids. Pick a card set color and get building! We play by the "no taking bricks from others" rule right now to cut down on the fights that tend to breakout between the 4 and 7 year olds when one picks on the other too much. The only difficult part of the game is trying to keep all the pieces together and in the box rather than using (and/or losing) the lego bricks on non-game building projects.

Lots of fun to play with our 5yo. Another nicely designed game - after the first couple of plays, kids can recognise what the various spaces mean (collect one red piece has red writing, for instance). Our house rule is that the winner is the first to collect all their pieces rather than the first to build their model (fairer on the smaller members of the gaming team).

Just a luck race, but I can get through it for the kids.

Good game for small children for fine motor skills.

The main challenge is that they do not give enough bricks to make the items.

need to inventory

Roll-and-move purchased for my 7-year-old son who adores lego. Worked well the first few times but really all he wanted to do was fiddle with the Lego. That won't teach him anything about gaming!

By
You roll and move, adding pieces to your lego creation. You can steal pieces from others', though. Kids game.

No lego pieces! Just the board, 20 player sheets and rules for parts.

Endlessly running around the board to get your last bricks. There are many better games with kids. (Kees)

4.5 out of 10

Not much of a real game. All the models are pretty much alike but the game really just comes down to the luck of your movement to get the right pieces first. Bouhgt for the kids but the box stays on the shelf while the pieces have been added to the general collection.

Great game for younger children. The children have a lot of fun building the models. But, they also start having glimpses at strategy (yep, that's right).

7 out of 10

Rated for playing with children. This is a great kids game - especially for little boys who love building lego models! It has been one of my most played children's games - just keeps coming out over and over again, and even the older siblings who are really to old for it are happy to join in!

I hate the end of this game--just lots of rolling and rolling and rolling to see if you can get that one last piece you need. However, my 8-year-old really enjoys putting the models together and stealing my pieces, so rated more from his perspective.

Oddly addictive...

Not so good. With bad rolls, games could go on forever!

GF got this for me for my birthday as sort of a gag gift. I'm a huge Lego fan, but the game is not much fun. Good for young ones I guess, but better for them to just create and not follow designs.

Deluxe version. Components are nice (tin is fairly large though) but there is little strategy as far as competition for the same pieces (there are normally enough to go round, as far as I can tell).

Rated for play with children. Mostly a roll and move, but building your lego creation does add some fun. There is some decision making in which pieces to take or steal from your opponents, so it's not horrible. Would never play this just with adults, though.

I'd rather just play with the legos.

6 out of 10
By
the best of the Lego games by far...there's actually 'Legoing' going on...

5 out of 10
By
Typical roll-and-move fare, but the Legos make it a bit more enjoyable. I don't like that players take pieces away from each other, though. 2 plays: 2 players

2 out of 10

Ugh. I like LEGOs, but this isn't really a game for the most part. You randomly move to a spot and get the piece it tells you to.

By
I actually bought this when I was in University for some reason. I think it was 5 bucks at the local Zellers or something. I gave it to one of my nephews several years ago.

3 out of 10

This rates a zero for adults. Not a great choice for young kids, either, as players are directed to steal pieces away from each other's build projects quite frequently.

5 out of 10

Fun game for little kids. Pregame set up is similar to putting together a puzzle. Some small decisions are made as to what pieces to take and where to move. Children learn how to assemble models from the pictures. My 4 year old LOVES this game. Reading ability is helpful, but after a couple plays kids can figure out what to do without reading. We own the deluxe version in the tin box with 40 models and 123 LEGO pieces. My only complaint is that you can't mix skill levels--beginner models with advanced models. Everyone has to play at the same level.

not much thinking in this game just roll and move...good lego bits though...
