What It IsThere's a new way to play with LEGO! LEGO introduces a new line of games that you build, play, and change. These games "build in" an extra element of fun, because, true to the LEGO band, kids actually have to assemble the gameboard as part of the overall experience using a variety of classic and specially designed LEGO pieces. Building takes about 20 minutes, and kids can change the board and the game each time to create different gameplay experiences.
The LEGO games have been a hit in Europe where they were first launched in 2009. Now on the market in the U.S., Minotaurus is already finding an enthusiastic audience of game players and LEGO fans. The mighty Minotaur, a mythical creature, protects a secret temple hidden deep inside a labyrinth. Be the first to lead your heroes to the temple, avoiding the Minotaur and cleverly placing walls to block your opponents. The game involves a little bit of strategy and a whole lot of "nyah, nyah" from kids as they block unsuspecting opponents. The game is for two to four players and includes a buildable LEGO die, 12 LEGO minifigures, a building instruction booklet, and a rule booklet.
The game looks great, is very tactile and has a challenging but engaging game play that makes it a great game for kids and families.
