We have a bookcase filled with board games in our living room. In addition to classics like Yahtzee and Clue, we also have some of the newer games for kids. One of my family’s universal favorites is Lego Creationary. This game is fun for both parents and children. It’s also a great way to encourage your child’s creativity, which is always a plus!
The Lego Creationary game comes with Legos in assorted colors, a deck of cards, and a colored dice. You roll the dice, then build the model matching that color on the card you draw. The cards are labeled as being easy, medium, or hard, so you can adjust the game play to better accommodate kids of all ages. If you want to make the game more entertaining, you can add some of your own Legos into what is provided.
What I like the most about Lego Creationary is its flexibility. The rule book provides several different ways to play, so the game is not repeating itself. Most versions are very short, meaning you can play in about 30 minutes. If your child is a slow builder who likes to make everything just right, you can even manage to check a few emails or sort some laundry while he’s working on his Lego creation.
We have plenty of fun playing the basic version of Lego Creationary, but expansion packs are available if you feel like you need more variety in the game. The expansion packs introduce new card categories, such as toys and sports, to provide more building possibilities.
Do you have any of the Lego games? If so, what games does your family enjoy?
