This game actually happens to be one of my favorite. If you have children who love to play with Lego’s, and love to build, this game may be for them. What is nice about this game is that the entire family can get involved in the game play. It really makes your creative side come to life, and you have to use your imagination for the building process. The average cost of this game is about $27, but you may be able to get it cheaper if you find it on sale.
