fun and games

Yes, I must say that I am enjoying this holiday week, so far. This morning, Carl, Raine and I played a couple of rounds of Creationary. If you haven't heard of this game, it's like Pictionary, except with Legos. There are several ways to play, but we like when one person has to build something from Legos, and the others guess what it is. How do you know what to build? Well, you roll a die which gives you a category and then you draw a card and build the item that fits that category on the card. It can be a challenge to the builder, and to the guessers, and fun for all.

We also played another Lego game, called Lava Dragon. The game board is made of Legos, and there are little Lego game people who climb the mountain and have to avoid the lava, until they can get to the top and call the Lava Dragon. Lego came up with these cool dice that you can fit lego pieces on, and then you kind of create the die as you play the game. Kinda cool.

There are several other Lego games out there, and some of them look really interesting. I think there is a Lego mousetrap game, for instance, and a racing game. The flexibility of the games is what I find interesting. Whoever came up with the idea of these games is a genius!
