The aim is to construct a robot; you start with a coloured body and by rolling the lego die, you can take parts (head, arms or legs) from the pile on the table, swap parts with other players, or steal parts. It's very simple and who wins is largely down to chance.
There's some scope to change the rules. We've made a rule that all the parts you hold during the game have to be attached you your robot - it doesn't affect the outcome, but it's fun trying to fit three arms onto a headless and legless robot!
The game is probably best suited for younger Lego enthusiasts (perhaps in the age range six to ten).
First of all you have to build the 3 different coloured Lego robots and the dice, (shouldn't take you long). Then you have to separate the robots into their main components - body, head, arms and legs and put them all in the "scrapheap" in the middle. The aim of the game is to be the first to rebuild an entire robot with all parts being the same colour. To achieve this you take turns rolling the Lego dice to see what you have to do - options are taking a piece from the scrapheap, swapping one of your pieces for that of another player or stealing a piece off someone!
I was playing this game with a four and a six year old at the weekend and we had lots of fun. It's simple enough that most school-age children should be able to play and yet I can see that even older children and adults might like the occasional go as it is a quick but very entertaining little game. My only comment would be that I wish it could be played with 4 players, (it's a maximum of 3)...but perhaps that just wouldn't work. I'm sure Lego limited it for a good reason...
Once made up you take them all apart and take the colour body you like and put the rest in the middle or scrapheap as they call it. You make up a lego dice(die) which has the three colours on three sides,a side with all the colours on and two sides with white and black sides.
When ready you choose who goes first and roll the die and depending on what you roll, pick up a piece or steal a piece off another player. The rules are as simple or complicated as you want them if you want to add some house rules you can do that.
They also mention that if you can make up a fourth white or black robot out of pieces you already have then you can do so to have a 4 player game.
My boy who is almost five plays it and as games don't last longer than 15 mins he doesn't lose attention.The robots look quite good and can be customised if you wish with parts you have already.
Great fun for kids up-to age ten.
Hope this helps
