What happens when a group of LEGO fans want to hang out together? You can build separate creations or you can find more social games to play together. That's where this book comes in handy. The Unofficial LEGO Game Idea Guide provides instructions on a variety of games you can play as a group using LEGO pieces you probably already own. These games inspire creativity, teamwork, and in some cases have a competitive aspect. All the games listed in this book have been tested at real LEGO parties and events. You can play most of the games with two or more players but some can be played alone as well. Try them out at your birthday party, at school, sleep overs, on family game night, or at a LEGO fan club meeting. To help you out, each game lists how many players are needed to play, the best age group, time needed, what materials you need, and how to play. If you need help tracking down a certain LEGO piece, we provide part numbers adults can use to purchase them online either at LEGO Shop at Home or Bricklink.com.This book also provides some crafts you can build using LEGO bricks, a brief LEGO vocabulary list, and resources for parents and teachers to buy and clean LEGO.Finally, there is an amazing LEGO Birthday party guide at the end of the book that's guaranteed to give your child the best birthday ever!So what are you waiting for?
