Question on the Lego Board Games

Though we don't cover them in detail on FBTB, we all still love our Castle, Pirates, and Space LEGO too.

Question on the Lego Board Games

Postby Marty » Fri Dec 03, 2010 3:17 pm

I've been bought one of these as a present for Christmas, and was wondering, the themes are good, but given the scope that Lego has on this. Wouldn't Larger Adventure game, dice controlled, with traps be a lot better, something along the lines of a haunted house, or castle. Also done on a much larger scale. After all, if world of warcraft and dungeon & dragons can make it big, so can something like this, it will also appeal to the older Lego builder.
I like the chess sets and I think they're on the right track, but with what's on offer something on a more grand scale is missing, what do you think, Marty

Undoubtedly much larger scale, and proportionately cooler, games COULD be made. Unfortunately, they would become VERY expensive, which a seasoned LEGO veteran might not blink at, but which the board game market they are targeting probably would. I think they are very consciously trying to stay in a certain lower price range with these.

LEGO Heroica made an appearance at the German toy fair.

Just look at all of those 2x2 tiles with center stud!

Yeah a little hard to convince "mommy" to buy a $200 board game. XD
Yea, though I walk through the valley...

Yeah, but if you ask daddy to part with a $1000. for the falcon, it's no-problem right?

Given the amount of follows of World of Warcraft etc I'm pretty sure that Lego would be on a winner, if the right board game was setup with and computer program tie-in, I even think that as the game expanded so to could include other sets & figures.

Wait, $200 per box?! While I'm very interested in an expandable board game line (ca. Settler's of Catan), $200 seems much too extreme for the number of pieces you're getting in each expansion.

I'm not sure what Rook is referring to. I've yet to see a price listed for Heroica if that's what he means.

Edit: $14.99 - $29.99 for roughly 100-300 pieces according to FBTB Toy Fair coverage.

I think Rook was comparing it to the older Chess sets.
