Give a Fun and Games Lego Gift Basket

Lego Board Game

Lego Pirate’s Treasure

Lego isn’t just for building anymore! With the many different Lego Games available, creating an ideal fun and games Lego gift basket for a child will be easy.

A whole new product line called Lego Games now offers builders of Lego a full range of games to play.  From monsters to pirates to race cars to magic potions, a person can find a Lego game matching the likes of any child.  These sets were first released in the United Kingdom in 2009, and have since been released in the USA.  The Lego Games utilize Lego pieces to build the board, pieces, and even a specialized Lego die.  Not only are they great to play, but Lego, of course, is always great to build.

Placing one of these games inside a container will provide the recipient with both fun and games.  To complete the array, other inexpensive items, like stickers, candy, pencils, other small Lego sets or Matchbox cars, can be included along with the game.

If the child in mind is a racing fan or likes playing with cars, the Lego game of Race 3000 may be the perfect choice.   Race 3000 is for 2-4 players, takes about 20-30 minutes to play, and is recommended for ages 7 and up.  Players get to build the race track, and then speed off to the finish line.  With shortcuts, turbo boosts and oil slicks, players need to be on high alert.  The winner receives a trophy and is placed on the winner’s stand.  Second and third place winners sit there as well.

Magikus would be a great choice for a child who likes Harry Potter, mixing up spells or creating magic potions.  This game would also make a wonderful addition to the Wizardry Games Gift Basket.  Magikus is for 2-4 players, takes only about 15 minutes to play and is recommended for ages 6 and up.

Players first need to make the game board which consists of shelves.  These store the needed ingredients to place inside the magic cauldron.  With the help of an owl, the player first to collect all four ingredients, (a skull, a wand, a cup, and a tooth) needed to complete the magic spell, wins.

Monster 4 is a Lego game which involves lining up monsters.  Getting four in a row wins the game.  With a creepy spider, a graveyard full of tombstones, and the player’s choice of pieces (jack-o-lantern, devils, werewolves, or aliens), this Lego game is a lot of fun for all. It is recommended for ages 7 and up and again is a short 15 minute game for 2-4 players.

Instead of sneaking around in graveyards, the Lego game of Minotaurus has players creeping through a labyrinth.  While trying to avoid the mythical creature called a Minotaur (who is protecting the temple in the center of the Lego board), players strive to reach the temple.  The first player to do so wins the game.  This Lego game is a bit longer to play.  Recommended for 2-4 players, a game may take around 20-30 minutes to finish.

Everyone likes to search for treasure, so the Atlantis Treasure Lego game may be the fall back choice.  Players hunt for treasure in a submarine while exploring the depths of Atlantis.  Although recommended for ages 9 and up, the game can be played by younger Lego creators also.  The first to collect 3 or 4 treasures (depending on the number of players) wins the game.

The above five games are only some of the choices available by Lego Games.  Giving a Lego Game Gift Basket is a fantastic way to fulfill both fun and games.  If they want to play a game, they can.  If not, the pieces provide endless imaginative fun.
