LEGO Games is a range of buildable board games for kids, the concept was originally developed in LEGO's secret ConceptLAB. The Lego Games sets are board games, which focuses on a series of playable games of different types using Lego bricks, and use the Lego concept of building to encourage players to change and adapt the rules of the games. The very first LEGO games sets were released on July 2, 2009 in the United Kingdom. The ten sets LEGO varied in size from around 100 to 350 pieces. Four of the sets - Lava Dragon, Pirate Code, Minotarus, and Creationary were later released in the United States in March 2010.
LEGO blocks originated in Denmark, from the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen, who began making wooden toys in 1932. After two years, he named his company LEGO similar to the Danish phrase “leg godt” which means “play well” in English.
There is no clue about the official Lego board game from the Lego company itself. But eventually if you are looking for the use of Lego as a board game, especially for the education purpose, there are a lot of Lego board games that can be found. Some websites give the template for free but another one gives the material, supplies and the tutorial only. But of course, we can agree that Lego board games are the coolest combination of having fun and learning in a good way.
To make DIY Lego game boards, you can use a large square of cardboard from the recycling box. cover the cardboard with a large piece of white paper, and then start to design the game board, which contains rectangles. Color the rectangles on the board with bright colors as found in Legos. Once it was colored, add the directions to the rectangles.
One of the goals of the Lego board game was to practice reading skills, so make sure to make the directions fairly simple for the beginner reader, like “Pick up 1 blue” and other simple directions, like “Put back 1 block.”
To play the Lego board game, the kids rolled a dice, moved their Lego character, and followed the directions on the rectangle landed on. At the end of the game they had fun creating with the pieces they had picked up.
