What It Is
What It Is
LEGO's Ninjago has become popular with kids as they get into the story of ninjas seeking to protect the world from the evil skeleton general. Adding to the excitement is the Ninjago Game, the latest buildable game in LEGO's games line. Players work together as a team and use stealthy ninja combat to battle the skeleton army. There are guardhouses to explore and guards to battle. The spinning top determines the outcome of the battles, which mimics the top play in other Ninjago games, and the art of "Spinjitsu," which is central to the Ninjago storyline. There are also golden weapons to be found and a rope that lets you swing from one place on the board to another. This 245-piece game comes with a buildable LEGO die, 10 minifigures, a rules booklet, and building instructions. The Ninjago game is for two to four players.
Why It’s Fun
This game is a great addition to the Ninjago line. It allows kids to play out the Ninjago storyline in a new and different way. This is one of the few games we've seen in which having all players work together, rather than in competition with one another, to defeat the skeleton general really enhances the gameplay.
Who It’s For
The Ninjago game is for ages 8 and up. The level of complexity is appropriate for this age range and even adults. Kids who aren't Ninjago fans will enjoy the building and the action gameplay.
What to Be Aware of
It takes about 25 minutes to put the game together, but building is what LEGO is all about, so have fun with it.
