LEGO Creationary Game

I picked this up a couple of months ago. My 7 year old son has a big/bad Lego habit and I thought it would be fun to channel that addiction into something we could all do together as a family.

I was not disappointed, the whole family loves this game.

The idea is to select a card with a picture on it, then build that object out of Lego and get the other people playing to guess what it is. Just like Pictionary but you are building the “picture” not drawing it.

I like the way you can choose the difficulty of your task when it’s your turn by selecting a level 1, level 2 or level 3 card.

My son definitely had an advantage because he was well acquainted with the way all of the little hinged Lego blocks go together but he was helpful in helping us find what we were looking for if we asked him.

We are always modifying games to make them work for our whole family. We didn’t like the container that came with the game to hold the pieces so we dumped out all the pieces onto a cookie sheet so we could see what was there to work with more easily. I think that was helpful. We also don’t necessarily follow the rule book when we play, we don’t play for points, we just play for fun and take turns guessing what the object is.

This game requires some thought, some effort and some imagination. Sometimes the pieces you wish you had to build something aren’t included in the pool to draw from so you have to improvise and do the best you can with what is available (kind of like life, right?). Sometimes the pieces aren’t the right color…maybe everyone will guess and guess and then need a hint or a little help by having the builder hold the object a certain way or move the object a certain way. Sometimes the littlest builders will dust their elders in both guessing and building.

If you do not have an imagination, if you do not know how to problem solve or think out of the box don’t bother wasting your time or money with this game. If you like a fun family game that can be challenging for a variety of skill levels, requires imagination and problem solving and is fun for young and old alike you will love this.

    I found this review very helpful! I saw a commercial for it the other day and wondered if it would be a good buy. I this might be a great game to buy for Thanksgiving when the whole family comes in.

    Thanks :)!
